misc_none.png 1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Grief Support Group Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Katie Petrossi   978-597-1710   kpetrossi@townsend.ma.us
   

Sponsored by Nashoba Nursing & Hospice, Karen Campbell offers individual and group opportunities to process grief and navigate new life circumstances.  No charge.

Benefits of a Grief Support Group (excerpted from HelloGrief.com):

After the loss of a loved one, we experience a wide variety of feelings and emotions. The ever-changing emotions we experience with grief can catch us off guard, causing us to  act out of character, or differently than our typical personality and demeanor.

We all need a support system to help us as we move through our grief journey. While family and friends are vital, unless they have experienced a close personal loss, they most likely don’t fully “get it.” That is where support groups can become a valuable resource. In a support group, you will find 10 or so new comrades also living life after loss.

Grief support groups offer companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss, and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.

In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, support groups give you the opportunity to share your story openly and guilt-free. You also have the opportunity to hear the stories of others and talk about coping day-to-day, as well as on the most difficult days of our grief journeys.

If you are looking for a support system in your grief journey, you should consider support groups. You will likely find the following things there:
     •Emotional and physical support in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
     •Support and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss.
     •The opportunity to begin the healing process through sharing your own story and hearing the stories of others.
     •Coping skills to help you through the most difficult days of your grief journey.
     •Hope through companionship with people who “get it” and understand first-hand what you’re going through.
     •The opportunity to discover new traditions and ideas to keep loved ones present in your hearts and in your memories.
     •Increased understanding of how children and other family members react to loss.
     •Permission to grieve and permission to live a happy productive life.

A special presentation for caregivers and all:  You're spent your entire life saving for some later date.. for retirement adventures or healthcare needs.  And that time is now upon you.  Even for the most prepared, this is a big mental shift. You may ask yourself:

  • Is now the time to start using my savings? 
  • How much can I spend, and still feel confident that I won't outlive my money?
  • What should I spend my money on?  Can I afford to have someone help me care for my spouse?  What about that retirement community?  
  • What happens if I spend too quickly?    

This presentation is a special topic of the Senior Center's Caregiver Roundtable, a monthly support group for caregivers.  Caregivers are welcome to share their experiences and concerns in a supportive environement.  Led by Joy Niemara.  Free on-site caregiving is available for fun, safe, professional attention for your loved one while you attend the meeting.  No charge, drop in.

The setting is Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, a year in which, of the approximate 168 men and women accused of practicing witchcraft, 20 were executed.

Let’s see how things go in 2018 when the audience members become the jury in the trial of Susannah Martin.  They will have the opportunity to question the defendant and form their own opinion as to her guilt or innocence.  The cast will open up again to the audience after the performance for a lively discussion.  

Great performance – inspiring interactive entertainment!

Franklin Pierce by Michael F. Holt

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Got Vinyl?

Irish Genealogy Before 1800 
 
Image result for genealogy
This program is about ancient Irish genealogists and the method of connecting the information in their chronicles with modern records.
It contains video, animation and sound and is designed to be entertaining as well as informative.
This presentation is especially valuable for researchers who have ancestors who came to the U.S. before 1800 and for those who have traced their ancestors to the 19th century but could not go back further.
 
 
Thomas M. Toohey
Bio
 
Tom Toohey is a modern day seanchaí (Irish storyteller) who has traveled to Ireland 16 times and collected hundreds of stories. While there, he met many local historians and learned a great deal about early Irish genealogists. He comes to this tradition naturally as his parents were great storytellers. In the last few years Tom has recorded his family stories in a four volume book called Images of Other Lives
 
For 40 years Tom was a teacher. He taught all levels from elementary school through graduate school as a public school teacher, adjunct professor and educational consultant. Tom has a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, a M.M. from the University of Hartford and 65 additional graduate credits in learning theory. From these experiences Tom developed presentation methods that are unique and effective. In retirement Tom has shared his knowledge and skills with genealogical organizations and historical societies.

This exhibition is the first to explore the role of empresses in shaping China’s last dynasty- the Qing dynasty - from 1644 to 1912. Nearly 200 spectacular objects from the Palace Museum tell the little-known stories of how imperial women influenced court politics, art and religion.

Timed to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of U.S.-China diplomatic relations, Empresses of China's Forbidden City is organized by the Peabody Essex Museum; the Smithsonian's Freer|Sackler, Washington, D.C.; and the Palace Museum, Beijing.

Explore sumptuous treasures from the Palace Museum that tell the little-known stories of empresses whose contributions had remained largely silent — until now.

Cost: $22.00 per person (Includes discounted ticket and transportation).  Please call the Senior Center to sign up.

The local chapter is of Citizen's Climate Education is hosting a free showing of the film "The Burden"

The_Burden_One_Sheet.jpg

This event is brought to you by: The Citizens' Climate of North Central MA 

Image may contain: text

Press Release (see comments below): 

“The Burden,” is a documentary about the enormous risks the military faces because of U.S. dependence on fossil fuels and the steps defense leaders are taking to transition to clean energy.

"Until I saw The Burden, I didn't realize that so many of our casualties in war zones happen with military convoys transporting fuel in conflict areas,” said Carolyn Sellars, co-leader of Citizens' Climate of North Central MA. “Generating power from renewable sources like solar would eliminate much of that risk.”
Additionally, the U.S. military is increasingly responding to catastrophes and conflicts that have been exacerbated by climate change. Defense Department reports have referred to climate change as a “threat multiplier,” a situation that will escalate unless we reduce the heat-trapping emissions from fossil fuels that drive climate change.
 
“As the title of the film implies, the burden of our dependence on oil is costly in both lives and money, and that’s why the military is leading the way on the clean energy transition,” said Sellars.
