Remembering Together

Discussion Topic: If you could share a meal with anyone inthe world (past or present), who would it be and why?

Our lives are made up of stories.  The Remembering Together program offers seniors a unique opportunity to share with one another some of their memorable life stories. These stories are often a source of encouragement, mutual appreciation, perspective, and a sense of connection.  Of course, there are also times when a story gives everyone a good laugh.    

Please join The Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester and the Manchester City Library for a conversational group at the Senior Center on Mondays at 10:30am, March 4 & 18, April 15 & 29, and May 6 & 13. Virtual attendance is also available!

For questions, call Susan Harmon at 603-624-6550 x7620 or email sharmon@manchesternh.gov

Signup for this program is encouraged! We will send you a reminder email before the meeting as well as a zoom link if you wish to attend virtually.

NH DHHS contracts with UNH IOD to provide training and monthly professional coaching to all NH Wraparound Coordinators.
