Good Day for a Yard Sale

October 2, 2010 - Cindi Barnes (above) holds up some of the items that were at her yard sale today. Meanwhile, some lucky customers walked away with some finds (below). Cindi has been holding the yard sales for several years now in support of MS and the American Cancer Society which are the beneficiaries of one hundred percent of the sales.  Several students from the Trottier School did their community service by assisting with the prices, setting up and picking up the items.

Raising Funds

October 2, 2010 - Ben Willis and Troop 1 members wash cars in support of Ben's Eagle Project.  Ben is building a bridge over a stream along the Bay Circuit Trail behind the Staples corporate office.  Ben has had to draw up plans and present them to Framingham Conservation members and engineers for approval.  The trail has had people building a rock bridge over the stream which caused it to flood.  The bridge will allow the stream to flow more naturally while still getting people to the other side.

"We have forgotten how to feed ourselves and each other and are at risk of losing our culinary heritage. However, when the stories are told and the recipes retained, we somehow manage to secure them for the future."

—Alice Waters, from her introduction



In each of twenty-five restaurants, local slow food organizations and Edible magazines will have been involved in choosing and often sponsoring these special dinners. Jessica Theroux will be present at a small number. Each restaurant will make books available with commemorative bookplates designed by Gregory Wakabayashi, signed by Jessica Theroux, and limited to 1,000 copies.

Chefs at select restaurants from Staten Island to Napa Valley will develop menus inspired by the book. The complete list will be posted on September 29th at: www.welcomebooks.com/cookingwithitaliangrandmothers/aslowtaste

There will be a Holiday Care Package Drive to Support Our Troops at the Senior Center on Saturday (9-4) and Sunday (9-3), October 16th and 17th. Conditions in Afghanistan are really tough and they need lots of support to improve living conditions and boost morale.

Please read the attached flier carefully. Lots of changes! Based on feedback from our troops we continue to make changes to the list in order to ship safely and cost effectively, so we can give them what they need. Think of the soldiers as family members when you are choosing your items and packing for them.

FOR THEIR CONVENIENCE PLEASE----------NO OPENED OR USED ITEMS, BULK-SIZE ITEMS, SOAP BARS, CHOCOLATE, AEROSOLS, CANNED GOODS, VHS TAPES

Through your generosity and support we have shipped over 110,000 lbs. and 5,000 boxes over the past 11 Care Package Drives, since Lisa Braccio started this in 2005. This is an opportunity for us to thank our courageous warriors for their service and sacrifice.

No donation is too little, too large or too late! Here are some ways you can help…

1.. Make a donation. Postage (about $6,000) and purchased items are a huge expense for us. You may send me a check made out to CARE PACKAGES FOR TROOPS. We’ve received checks from as far away as Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, and Arizona!

2. Purchase items on the attached shopping list and bring them to the Senior Center on 10/16and 10/17. INDIVIDUAL not bulk size please.

3. Bring a bunch of cards with a note of thanks and encouragement. They love cards! Some soldiers get nothing at all – no mail, no care packages.

4. Give an hour or two of your time that weekend to help pack care packages. Wonderful community service project for students.

5. Organize your friends, employees, church, clubs, Scouts, students, and collect donations and items and make cards.

6. Send this e-mail and flier to everyone you know to share the opportunity to help. If you can help us to get the word out that would be terrific!

The troops tell us that we can never truly know how deeply touched they are by your generosity.

We would be so grateful for anything anyone wants to do and will make it as easy for you to help as I can. If you aren’t around that weekend, we would be happy to pick up your items.

GOWING'S SWAMP AND THOREAU'S BOG

Date: Saturday, October 2 , Time: 10:00am-Noon

Location: Gowing’s Swamp, Concord

Leader/Speaker: Naturalist and Photographer Cherrie Corey

Gowing's Swamp, an 8.9 acre, locally rare level bog and vernal pool complex, is nestled in a beautiful, glaciated woodland in Concord - a short walk from Thoreau's family home.  Due to Thoreau’s detailed studies of its inner kettlehole bog and plant life and his 38 references to its ecology and its more primal effects on his own nature, Gowing's Swamp has continued to attract noted writers, naturalists, photographers, and scientists to its shores for more than 150 years.  Cherrie has been studying and communing with the bog for more than 30 years, recently publishing a report for SVT documenting its history and ecology.  This walk will lead you around the bog and over glaciated woodland paths during its’ most colorful season.

Member Fee: Free | Non-Member Fee: $10

Services : Outreach: Cynthia Henderson Beard    


Hours: M, T, W 7:30 – 3:30, Th 7:30-1:30

Outreach is a service provided to seniors and their adult children. Many seniors living in the community want nothing more than to live out their years in their own homes. In order to do so, some people may need additional supports or equipment, technology or services that will enable them to do so safely. Following an assessment or interview, Outreach services can connect you with the supports and services that may help you live independently as well as safely in your own home.

These supports may include, but are not limited to;

  • Home Healthcare
  • Homemaking services
  • Medication Management
  • Personal Emergency systems
  • Adult Day Health
  • Caregiver support groups
  • Transportation
  • Equipment Vendors
  • Veterans Agent
  • SHINE counseling
  • Aging Service Access Point
  • Elder Law Attorneys
  • Geriatric Care Managers
  • Mediation

Outreach can also give you information and refer you to programs that are designed to help make things a little easier in these difficult times, such as;

  • Fuel Assistance
  • Prescription Advantage
  • Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program and the local Food Pantry.

Many people find that their lives would be simplified by relocating to a Senior Community or an Assisted Living facility. Others may require skilled care and will need to move to a Nursing Home. There are many things to consider and it can be helpful to have someone to review the points of consideration or even have someone gather the information for you. Outreach can do this at a time when you may have other things on your mind.
