Hi all,

Happy May!

Things are continuing to open up slowly. This month reminds us of mothers and their special day! We will hold a Mother’s Day lunch on Friday May 6th in the Tiffany Room from 1130 am to 1230 pm.  We will honor the special women both living and deceased. Please bring a picture of you being a mom or a picture of your mother on the 6th – so we can celebrate who we are as mothers and daughters!!

Also on May 6th is the return of the Community Breakfast at the Nahant Village Church at 8am. Anyone needing a ride to the church please let us know by Thursday May 5th and we will make arrangements for transportation.

Things to know:

We have a new member of our team helping out in the day-to-day operations in the Tiffany Room serving our seniors. Her name is Michele Marshall and she will be splitting her time with Ann Callahan starting in May. Her time at the Center will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Ann will continue to help us on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Michele grew up in Nahant and is looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. She has lots of experience planning events and helping behind the scenes in various kinds of jobs she held over the years. I trust you all will make her feel welcomed as you did and continue to do so for me!!  Welcome Michele!!

On Thursday May 5th, Attorney Brian Snell will visit us in the Tiffany Room after lunch that day at 1230pm. Brian is an Elder law expert and will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding estate planning or any legal concerns for senior citizens. He has also agreed to come once a month on the third Thursday to answer any legal questions you might have. Please call the Nahant Council on Aging to schedule an appointment!

Linda Peterson will be joining us on Wednesday mornings starting in May, helping us with exercise class in the town hall from 1030am to 11am. Please
come to her class!!

On Wednesday May 11th, at 1230pm, we will hear from Betsy Morris talking about the many benefits of joining the Seaglass Village project that helps seniors in the following towns Nahant, Swampscott and Marblehead. She will be here to talk about the services provided and to answer any questions you might have.

And finally: May brings us Memorial Day at the end of the month. There will be the return of the annual Memorial Day Parade in the town on Monday, May 30th. We will remember all those who have served and lost their lives in the line of service. I also think it is also good time to stop and remember all those from the Council on Aging who have died in the past year, most recently, Arthur Barreda.

We will have a special ceremony remembering those who have passed as we come closer to Memorial Day. We hold their memories deep in our hearts and hope and pray all those who have died before us are at peace. I wish us all brighter days ahead! Mary

From the Director
