    Baseball fans we want YOU to day trip with us!

    BASEBALL!

    Won’t you and yours please join us on our next great day trip on Sunday afternoon August 19th? We have privately chartered a coach bus for the day and have great seats! This fun trip is open to the public and to all ages! Awesome memories await you!

    This one is for the baseball fans in our lives! MLB games are expensive and this is the next best thing- especially for Red Sox fans!

    The Pawtucket Red Sox (known colloquially as the PawSox) are a professional Minor League baseball team based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The team is a member of the International League and is the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox. They will play Durham Bulls 1:35 pm game at McCoy Stadium which is home to the Paw Sox Baseball team. The coach bus is all ours.

    Cost includes game ticket for Section 4 behind home plate (in the shade), a $2 food voucher and coach bus transportation. $49/resident. We depart from Groton Senior Center at 10:45 am so plenty of parking.

    ALSO~ 3 awesome game day promotions!!

    1. Paw Sox Baseball Card Set The first 5,000 fans entering McCoy Stadium will receive a Paw Sox Baseball Card Set compliments of Dunkin’ Donuts.
    2. Summer Catch on the Field Fans, come and enjoy a summer catch on the field prior to the start of every Sunday afternoon game from noon until 12:30 pm. The Paw Sox will provide both real and squishy baseballs for all to participate, so bring your glove and a buddy and make McCoy your field of dream.
    3. Sunday Post Game Run the Bases Fans of all ages are welcome to Run the Bases after the game

    “You’re not too old and it’s not too late” – Rainer Maria Rilke

    Have you heard this statement? Now think about it…

    As we work longer and care for others, time for ourselves can be limited but that lack of social engagement does affect our brain health as well. Now you might ask how do I increase my interactions with others?

    Think of those things you would like to do. Make a written list.  Explore other ideas. A book club, a dance class, lunch out, a day trip, learning a new skill. Whatever it is, now look for those things on your list. Ahh, they have that very thing at your Senior Center, Parks and Rec, Adult Ed…

    Now to go for the first time. Just how scary is that. Yup, that’s why you haven’t gone in the past, isn’t it? You don’t know anyone who will go with you and you don’t want to go alone…

    Do you remember your first day of school? The first day of every new school you ever went to? The first day of every new job? The first day at a new church? The first time you went to a new doctor’s office?

    All of those were scary too! But you got very comfortable in a short period of time didn’t you? Most times it worked out really well by the end of the first week.

    Well do the same thing now. Pick that thing you have always wanted to do. Sign up. Then show up. There will be other people there for their first time as well. In a few visits you’ll be making new friends and perhaps finding folks you know from the past.

    But now you’ll be getting out, having some “me” time and experiencing new activities and making new friends. All very good things to be doing!

    Give it a try! “You’re not too old and it’s not too late” – Rainer Maria Rilke
