Programs in late August, 2019:

1. Author Talk: featuring Sarah Carlson
at the Dr. Shaw Memorial Library on Wednesday, August 21st, at 1pm

Sarah is a photographer, poet, widow, mother, outdoorswoman & much more, and she reminds us that we all have so many pieces to our lives.  Sarah lives in Farmington. She began combining her poetry with photographs after the loss of her husband.  Her book The Radiance of Change is rich in imagery, metaphor, and the potential for healing.  In both her poetry & discussions, she makes real connections with readers & listeners.
Please join us for this wonderful talk!  This program is free & open to the public.

2. Forum on Aging:   The Aging In Place Committee Wants Your Input
Sunday, August 25, from 3-5pm,  at the Dr. Shaw Memorial Library

Join us for ice Cream Sundaes and group discussion of the eight domains of livability that can help us remain in our town as we age, and that are essential for the health and well-being of elder residents.  At 4:15, there will be a brief presentation on Maine State Housing Authority’s Comfortably Home Program which is designed to help low income seniors with accessibility & improvements.  There will then be time for questions & discussion.
