The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

This month we will be reading The Fleet at Flood Tide: America at Total War in the Pacific, 1944-1945 by James D. Hornfischer.

A thrilling narrative of the climactic end stage of the Pacific War, focusing on the U.S. invasion of the Mariana Islands in June 1944 and the momentous events that it triggered. With its thunderous assault into Japan's inner defensive perimeter, America crossed the threshold of total war. From the seaborne invasion of Saipan to the stunning aerial battles of the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot, to the largest banzai attack of the war and the strategic bombing effort that led to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Marianas became the fulcrum of the drive to compel Tokyo to surrender with consequences that forever changed modern war. 

The WWII Nonfiction Book Club reads a different nonfiction title that focuses on WWII each month. New members are always welcome.

Please let us know you're coming by registering here.

NEA Big Read Kick-off Event and Mesa Opening Reception
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park St., Attleboro

The Attleboro Arts Museum will respond to Carlson’s novel with the mounting of an exhibit entitled Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead. Five Skies repeatedly spotlights a range of tables: Ronnie Panelli’s well crafted, sky-blue gathering spot; the examination table where a wood sliver is removed; the tables at the Antlers – the best place to eat in town.  Mesa: Tables Constructed with Five Skies Overhead, features original tables created in either two-or three-dimension.  In all cases, the work on view has been built as Ronnie crafted his sky-blue piece – with commitment, care and a personal sense of pride. This event includes performances of poetry from Carpenter Poets of Eastern Massachusetts and officially kicks-off Attleboro’s 2018 NEA Big Read. Sponsored by the Attleboro Arts Museum and the Attleboro Cultural Council.

A reservation is requested, but not required. Call the Attleboro Arts Museum at 508-222-2644 x10 or email office@attleboroartsmuseum.org to reserve your space.

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Preventing Elder Financial Abuse
4:30 PM

Tonight we welcome Gabriela Vieira, Vice President, Banking Center Manager, Webster Bank who will present a workshop on elder financial abuse. Tonight's program is sponsored by the Attleboro Council on Aging.

The incidence of financial exploitation of elders and vulnerable adults is growing nationally. Fraudulent telemarketing schemes and unscrupulous scam artists increasingly target elders, resulting in significant financial losses. In addition, loved and trusted family members too often make illegal and improper use of resources, resulting in emotional and financial damage that is devastating. Elders and vulnerable adults are left unable to pay for their basic daily needs, including housing, food, critical utilities and medications, and are traumatized by this victimization.

To aid in early identification and prevention of elder financial exploitation and fraud and assist elders to remain safely in the community, Massachusetts has developed two community collaborations: the Massachusetts Bank Reporting Project and the Money Management Program.   This workshop will provide an overview of the signs and symptoms of financial exploitation and fraud, and simple strategies for protecting one's assets. 

Please R.S.V.P. at the Attleboro Council on Aging number listed below.

APL WWll Non Fiction Book Club
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

This month we will be reading Winston's War: Churchill, 1940-1945 by Max Hastings.

Beginning in 1940, when popular demand elevated Churchill to the role of prime minister, and concluding with the end of the war, Hastings shows us Churchill at his most intrepid and essential, when, by sheer force of will, he kept Britain from collapsing in the face of what looked like certain defeat. Later, we see his significance ebb as the United States enters the war and the Soviets turn the tide on the Eastern Front. But Churchill, Hastings reminds us, knew as well as anyone that the war would be dominated by others, and he managed his relationships with the other Allied leaders strategically, so as to maintain Britain’s influence and limit Stalin’s gains.

At the same time, Churchill faced political peril at home, a situation for which he himself was largely to blame. Hastings shows how Churchill nearly squandered the miraculous escape of the British troops at Dunkirk and failed to address fundamental flaws in the British Army. His tactical inaptitude and departmental meddling won him few friends in the military, and by 1942, many were calling for him to cede operational control. Nevertheless, Churchill managed to exude a public confidence that brought the nation through the bitter war.

The WWII Nonfiction Book Club reads a different nonfiction title that focuses on WWII each month. New members are always welcome.
