Healing After Loss
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Come and be part of an impactful talk with esteemed author Susan Lynch, a local writer who has received accolades for her memoir "Life After Kevin; A Mother's Search for Peace and the Golden Retrievers that Led the Way." Susan will delve into how we can better support those who are grieving from a stigmatized loss, share her insights on the three keys to healing, and discuss what she learned from her son's passing following an accidental overdose. There will be a Q&A session, and copies of the book will be available for purchase at the venue.

This event is thoughtfully scheduled during Public Health Week, and we are also pleased to have Finley, a golden doodle therapy dog, present to provide extra comfort and support to those who need it.

Hunt for the X-15 Rocket Plane
12:00 PM

From 1959 to 1968, NASA operated three North American Aviation rocket planes to great effect. In 199 flights they generated, over 700 technical papers on aerodynamics and set altitude and speed records for winged vehicles not exceeded until the space shuttle many years later. In 1993, our presenter -- David Ball -- organized a search in the Mojave Desert for parts from X-15 #3 which came apart in flight in 1967. Today he will share what made the X-15 the greatest research plane ever built and his theory on why one was lost. Led by David S. Ball, a volunteer educator with NASA. As a Solar System Ambassador with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, he presents topics related to American activities in space. 

Presented in partnership with Tewksbury Public Library. 

Understanding Hospice: Questions & Answers
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join us as we engage with a panel of speakers to explore what hospice care looks like today, in 2023. We'll explore the basics of hospice, including who, what, when, where, and how. We'll also address some of the myths and barriers that can get in the way of accessing care. Community members are encouraged to bring their questions as well. This program is a collaboration with Home Health and Hospice Care (HHHC) and is part of a series called Community Conversations: Aging, Death & Other Things. Look for two other events with HHHC in May!

Panel will consist of: Anica Naprta - HHHC Medical Director, Chris Howard - HHHC Psychosocial Manager, Mary Wiseman - family member of loved one who received hospice care.

Come early (5:30-6) and take time to refresh your spirit as we gather for this community conversation. Hospice Harpist Virginia Lyder will offer music to let go of the day and settle into the space. Refreshments provided.

The Nature of Spring
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Springtime in Massachusetts is filled with unique seasonal wonders and mysteries. What animals are making noises in the evenings and why? Who is migrating back or waking from their winter slumbers? What kind of wildflowers are popping up near the sidewalks and woodland trails? This virtual program will introduce the seasonal dynamics of nature in spring, and provide ideas and resources for observing, appreciating, and supporting wildlife near home during this season. Led by Tia Pinney, a Biologist, Lead Naturalist, and educator at Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary in Lincoln. Since 1994, when she first started working at the farm, Tia has overseen efforts to maintain New England’s wildlife on our 206-acre property, managing staff and volunteers in planting projects and citizen science.

Virtual program presented in partnership with Tewksbury Public Library. This program will be recorded. All registrants will receive the recording via email within 24 hours of the program.
