Council on Aging Update

News and Notes, Wednesday September 21st, 2022

The weather has taken a distinct turn toward the cooler and with the sun setting sooner and getting darker earlier at night- a reminder for everyone to begin to bring your house plants who’ve been sunning themselves for the last 5 months back in. It’s time. 

By the way, today is the last full day of Summer for 2022. The Fall Equinox happens tomorrow night at 9:03 pm. Welcome Fall!

Just a final reminder that the COA Wellness Fair will be happening here at Harper Friday morning from 9:00 to 11:30. We have lots of vendors who will have all sorts of information available on all sorts of topics and of course the CHP van will be here dispensing Covid vaccines, boosters and flu shots. Don’t miss it!

The South Williamstown Community Association and Williamstown Rural Lands at Sheep Hill (671 Cold Spring Road, Route 7) are co hosting another edition of the “repair Cafe” on  Saturday afternoon, September 24, from 1 to 4 p.m. The event will be at Sheep Hill and is free although donations are welcomed. Their fixers can repair lots of broken and damaged items ranging from minor electrical fixes to missing buttons. Stop by! They have refreshments available as well.

Another reminder; On Tuesday September 27th, Robin Putnam, Events & Outreach Manager, Office ofConsumer Affairs & Business Regulation will be here to talk about ID Theft and FraudPrevention. There seems to be a renewed effort by the scammer creeps to get your money and Robin has seen it all. It’s a “Lunch and Learn” opportunity, we’ll eat, she’ll talk. Noon. Menu; Spaghetti, meatballs and garlic bread. Maybe salad…

On Thursday evening September 29th at 6:00 our friends from the Greylock Federal Credit Union will be at Harper offering a seminar on the topic of planning for retirement.Their goal is to help the soon to retire or the folks who are thinking about retiring to visualize what retirement might look like from a financial and lifestyle perspective. If you’re interested, please call us and let us know that you’ll be joining us that evening. And, yes, refreshments will be available of course!

See you around!
