Welcoming Refugees with Start Fresh
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

On Monday, April 23, 2018 @ 5:30 pm Start Fresh will be presenting a 23 minute documentary on the local efforts to welcome refugees to New London.  Refreshments will be provided.

RESETTLED is a move produced by The Politic at Yale University.  They selected the New Haven’s refugee community and resettlement program because together they exemplify the city’s multiculturalism, tolerance, and activism.  The film centers around refugee experiences and the continuing efforts of resettlement and support services in New Haven.

Start Fresh has taken up the challenge and welcomed four refugee families to New London and works together with the eight families that have resettled in New London County.  We will be welcoming families in 2018 and needs your support to continue our work.

Volunteer MeetUps are held at St James New London on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at 5:30 to 6:30 pm.  www.startfreshct.org

MOMS Club Open House with UConnn KIDS Guest Speaker
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

The MOMS Club of New London and UConn K.I.D.S presents Dr. Beth Russell from the University of Connecticut's Department of Human Development and Family Studies. Dr. Beth Russel will give a presentation that will center on executive function and self-regulation in children. This 30 minute presentation will present information about how children develop self-control. One of the most interesting areas of study is the role parents play in fostering their children's skills. These early experiences shape behavior across childhood and into early adulthood and are helpful in facing everyday challenges and any unexpected more stressful events. Parents who have children birth to five years old are invited to this free presentation. 

10:30-10:45am - MOMS Club info & playtime
10:45-11:15am - "Executive Function & Self-Control" by Dr. Beth Russell

Enjoying Nature Safely: An Update on Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Southeastern CT is ground zero for Lyme Disease, babesiosis, and other tick-borne diseases, with the number of cases nearly tripling in the U.S. since the 1990’s and the number of diseases carried by ticks locally is increasing. Our dedication and passion for the natural environment puts us at high risk for these serious infections. Connecticut’s landscape provides a banquet for many types of wildlife, including the white-tailed deer -- and where there are deer, there are ticks! Cindy Barry, Lyme Disease Prevention Coordinator with the Ledge Light Health District will be here to explore the intersection between those who love nature and tick-borne disease. Together we will learn about new threats to our health and how to protect ourselves while enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
