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."

Our monthly book discussion led by Trish Ferrara. We will be reading The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George We'd love to have you join us!

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.

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."

Wednesday Morning Book Group
10:00 AM

Our monthly book discussion led by Trish Ferrara. We will be reading The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict We'd love to have you join us!

Mitza Maric has always been a little different from other girls. Most twenty-year-olds are wives by now, not studying physics at an elite Zurich university with only male students trying to outdo her clever calculations. But Mitza is smart enough to know that, for her, math is an easier path than marriage. And then fellow student Albert Einstein takes an interest in her, and the world turns sideways. Theirs becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage.

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.
