Grief and Loss Support Group

Wednesday, March 21st and April 18th

1:30 pm—3:00 pm

The five stages - denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance - are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with the one we lost. They are tools to help us frame and identify what we may be feeling. But they are not stops on some linear timeline in grief. – Elizabeth Kuebler-Ross  

Join us in the dining room for friendship and support as we learn to live with those we’ve lost.  Feel free to come early for lunch at noon before we gather!  Please call to let us know you’re coming!  For more information ask for Marty.





Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation

March 15, 2018—6:30 pm—8:00 pm

Tai Chi Master, Ed Williamson, founder and owner of Pathways in Millis, will join us to introduce us to the benefits of living mindfully and enriching our lives by having a simple meditative practice. Mindfulness and meditation are not mysterious but, rather, practical and proven practices that bring wellness and joy to life.

Please call the Senior Center at 508-429-0622 to reserve your space for both these programs.  Ask for Marty should you need further information.

Dr. Gary Hylander Presents



Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at 10:00am

(Continental Breakfast Provided by Timothy Daniels House)

Fearing the Chinese people had lost their revolutionary fervor, Mao Zedong urged the creation of the "Red Guards" to purge the nation of the creeping "impure" elements of the "Four Olds": old customs, old culture, old habits and old ideas.  Mao believed that the Chinese Revolution of 1949 had to be a continuous process to prevent the growth of bourgeois capitalist ideas.  Chaos followed.
