MONDAY
JOBSEEKER BUDDY GROUP
Theresa Howe, Tom Neel, Ed Yee, 9:30-11am, Library

The jobseeker buddy group is a support group for people that are looking for a new job or to transition into a different job. We typically go around the room and review the activities from the prior week, provide support and ideas for what could be done in our respective job searches, provide each other with referrals, tips, resume critiques, etc. It is a great way to keep the momentum up during a job search and relate to others in a similar situation.

MEDITATION
James Hencke, 8-9 p.m., Library

In meditation practice, we allow ourselves to dwell in the present moment. We find that by developing our awareness and compassion we can open ourselves, relax into situations, and enjoy our life!

 

WEDNESDAY

PREQUEL TO MAJOR MUSIC
7:30pm, Parish Hall
Ian Garvie

Ian will help us to understand the intricacies of what we know and love about G. F. Handel’s
Messiah Part I.

The music includes exuberant choruses, poignant solos and mystical recitatives which tell the Nativity story.

THURSDAY

CARING FOR OLDER ADULTS
Miriam Baker and Deborah Blumberg
7:30pm, Conference Room

Many people are juggling jobs, families and their parents’ or other family members’ increasing medical needs, frequent emergencies and ongoing need for care. How do we cope with the needs of our loved ones and find some balance in our own lives? What do we need to learn as we take on this task? How do we find information and community? If you find yourself in this position, you are welcome at this group for discussion and support.
This is a drop-in group so please attend when it is convenient for you.
