Council on Aging Daily Update

Updates, Wednesday, July 22, 2020

We just completed Day One of the annual Farmer’s Market distribution. It’s definitely a different experience this year with people making arrangements to come in at specified times and  pick them up. Actually, on one hand,  it’s more ordered than it usually is, on the other it will take longer to distribute. All part of the Covid experience for sure!

Anyway, we have a limited number of Farmer Market coupons available for individuals who meet the eligibility criteria so if you’re interested in finding out about these, call us here at Harper, 413.458.8250. We’ll be happy to tell you all about it.And for those of you who are in the know about these coupons, get moving. Limited number means limited number!

Jane’s Exercise class #15 is “live” on Willinet, so tune in and tune up. While I’m at it, Youlin’s Tai Chi class meets here at Harper in the backyard Monday and Thursday live and in person.There’s a registration of sorts, more Covidizated programming,  so you’ll have to contact us here at Harper and we’ll arrange for you to  be in contact with Youlin.

Speaking of Willinet, the community town hall forum Williams President Mandel and others held last week to discuss the plan for the return of students to the College campus for the fall semester  is also available for viewing on Willinet. We’re about to experience our annual population explosion from all over here in Town-if you’re curious regarding the plan Williams has to reintroduce students into the community you’ll find it here as well..

A reminder that this is Brown Bag day delivery week- Friday, July 24th is the day folks. They’ll be arriving at Harper sometime after one and then we’ll be distributing them to you so watch for us! If you’re not yet a Brown Bag participant and are interested call us here at Harper, 458.8250, for information. There is a brief application process and there are eligibility questions. Actually, really easy eligibility questions…

Now a final note of interest although this might be better as a Friday note; Governor Baker signed a bill yesterday which will allow restaurants to sell mixed drinks to go if ordered with food. Essentially, when you order takeaway or delivery from your favorite restaurant you can also order up to 64 ounces of your favorite beverage as well.Of course you have to be 21 or older, the drink must be in a sealed container and the bevvie itself has to be transported in the trunk of your or the delivery persons  car. Earlier in the year Baker allowed for wine and beer to be sold to go, this just makes it a little more interesting and hopefully will help the restaurants.Anyone up for a Margarita…?

OK, drink lots of fluids, wear sunscreen and check for ticks.
