    Mondays, Starting January 28th- Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives

    Beginning January 28th

    Did you receive any annual Holiday letters this year?  Did you ever notice how these letters only mention the glowing successes, the positive things that your friends, their kids and grandchildren have done over the past year?  Did you laugh to yourself knowing there is more to the story?  Some people notice that these “public relations” efforts don’t leave them feeling closer to their friends but more remote.

    What makes us feel connected is when we tell the actual true stories of our lives.  To do that we want a safe and non-competitive group – a circle of others like ourselves.

    As we grow into our mature years it is important to find opportunities to reflect on the real life we’ve lived and make some sense of it.  It is often those things that have been harder to speak of (the things we’d never put into a Holiday letter) that keep us from feeling at peace with the lives we’ve lived.  Come join us in being real, crying at times and laughing often, as we make sense of it together.

    The Women’s Stories, Women’s Lives circle will be limited to 8 women.  The group will meet weekly on Mondays, starting January 28th, from 1:30 – 3:00pm in the Health Clinic.

    Facilitator will be Sue Fraser Frankewicz, a retired medical social worker and experienced group leader.

    Please Sign-Up at Reception if you will be joining us.  Group limited to 8 participants.

    Quilting Room News

    Every Thursday afternoon from 1-3pm, this fun group of people teach one another quilting techniques, shows off recently competed projects and socialize.  This past year we have provided a large quilt for the Senior Center to raffle, sold a few practice pieces for the benefit of the Senior Center, and have donated needed material to a worthy cause.

    Thank you to the generous people who bring in boxes of material from their homes.  We go over the fabric and store what we will use, then place the rest on the Senior Center’s “Free Tables” for other crafters and seamstresses to enjoy.

    We welcome new members at any time.  The goal of each person in the group is to make one quilting project per year which will be used to donate to a worthy cause in the area.
