As you age, you may experience some minor blips that cause you to veer a bit off a course set earlier in life, or you may face challenges or obstacles that force you down a completely different path. On Sunday October 20, 1 to 5 p.m., join us for a program designed to help you understand the types of obstacles and challenges you or a loved one may face and how to take control and successfully transition. By gaining knowledge now, you will be better equipped to make thoughtful decisions. Meagan Lawler, PhD, will serve as Master of Ceremonies and our Keynote Speaker is Amy Schultz, a Licensed Clinical Geropsychologist. There will also be a panel of experts in elder law, geriatric care management, aging in place, and lifestyle options available in our community.

Experts at Living Well Come see what we have to offer during National Senior Center Month Celebrations at Adult Community Center. We have two wonderful events to feature: History Pub Wednesday, September 11, at 7 p.m. What American wouldn’t love to have a conversation with Abraham Lincoln? Praised as “the best Lincoln in America,” Lincoln portrayer Steve Holgate brings Lincoln alive. Imagine as an audience member, you play the role as a journalist of the time, having the chance to ask Lincoln about his years in the White House and hear him discuss the dark years of the Civil War during a press conference-style town hall. Starting from his remarkable resemblance to our 16th President, Lincoln portrayer Steve Holgate, gives a compelling performance as Abraham Lincoln. Third Thursday Photography Show featuring David Burch Thursday September 19, from 5-7 p.m. An exclusive display of local photographer David Burch, who has been a commercial photographer for 25 years.
