Fast-Forward PBS Documentary & Discussion If you could see your family’s future, would you change anything? FAST-FORWARD follows four millennials and their parents as they travel through time to meet their future selves. Wearing an MIT-produced “aging empathy suit” and working with professional make-up artists, they grapple with the realizations, conversations and mindset required to age successfully.

Manager’s Message First and foremost, I want to express my deep appreciation and gratitude to the ACC volunteers who have helped sustain our human service programs during the pandemic. The ACC was able to keep engaged with our respite families and prepare and deliver meals because of the dedication of our volunteers. A huge thank you to our kitchen, Meals on Wheels and Our Place at the Center program volunteers! September always seems like a good time for a fresh start. Maybe it’s all those years of school that condition us to relating autumn as the start of a new year. Speaking of a new start, our congregate dining is back on Wednesday, September 8th! Lunch will be served at Christ Church Episcopal Parish (CCP) at 1060 Chandler Rd. from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The kitchen will stop serving at 12 noon.
