Memory Cafe ‘Kick-off’
Thursday, Feb. 11, 10:30 a.m. to noon
The Senior Center is very excited to announce the launch of our “Memory Cafe!” The challenges of living with memory loss can sever social connection at a time when it is needed most. Memory Café gatherings are one way people with memory loss and their care companions can come together to make new friends and support each other.
On the second and fourth Thursday of the month, there will be a social hour — a relaxed, informal atmosphere for everyone to mix and mingle. Grab a cup of coffee and make new friends who understand.
Free. Open to the public. Light refreshments served. For more information, call 584-1621.
March 11, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
