Hi all,

We made it through the very hot and very dry summer!!! I hope you all stayed safe and enjoyed yourselves!

We have a busy fall lineup to think about these days! This month we have some of our usual activities, manicures on Mondays, trips to Market Basket, and the Blood Pressure Clinic and Attorney Brian Snell returns for office hours.

I have invited, in the middle of the month, our public health nurse, Deb Murphy,RN, to speak about the flu vaccine and any Covid updates after lunch on Sept 15th.

We will also travel to Tyngsboro (about an hour away) for a visit to the Parlee Farm to shop and see what’s happening on the farm. They have a large farmstand there full of fresh fruits and vegetables for purchasing. Then we will head into town for some lunch at this great diner that looks like fun and good food!

Speaking of shopping, the end of the month has us traveling after lunch to the Christmas Tree Shop on Route 1. As always, please sign up if interested.

Don’t forget to vote this month. Primary elections are September 6th.

There will be a meet and greet party for Sea Glass Village with the theme of Reimagining Retirement on Sept 14th in the early evening at the First Church Congregational in Swampscott . Call the center formore information!

A special thank you to the Nahant Lion’s Club for all their help in giving the bathroom at the Council on Aging a new and improved look! The Lion’s Club scraped off wallpaper and painted the walls a beautiful new color! The project took a couple of weekends to finish, but the wait was well worth it! Thank you again!

We will be holding a Memory Café at the library starting in October. The atmosphere will be welcoming and inviting. The Memory Café is a time for caregivers and their loved ones living with dementia to engage in an hour of fun activities that are interactive and informative. Snacks will be provided. More information to come!

We have upcoming events planned as time moves forward. Things to do as we head into fall and the holidays. So stay tuned and ….
Stay well,
Mary
