In January, join the Mabel Kay Senior Center’s “Something to Chew On” series on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at 24 Walnut St. In order to sufficiently provide lunch, they ask for a RSVP by the Monday of that same week. If you don’t like to come to things by yourself, grab a friend (or let Sheri Siegel know, and she’ll find a friend). Please RSVP by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 856-354-8789.
There is a $3 suggested donation fee for lunch.
The sessions are as follows:
Jan. 11, 2023, Katie Donellen (Rehabilitation Teacher) and Lisa Lehman (Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist), NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired: Did you know that the State of NJ provides services to those who are blind or visually impaired, including aging seniors who may be losing their vision?
Donellen and Lehman will explain the different services provided by the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and how it can help you stay independent, purposeful and able to have fun. Donellen focuses on daily living skills (reading, writing checks, technology, how to use a remote control, how to cook, clean, use the telephone, play cards, knit, etc.) and Lehman focuses on travel/orientation skills (how to navigate your house, your neighborhood, how to go grocery shopping, how to cross streets, how to go up/down stairs, how to navigate bumpy sidewalks, etc.).
Jan. 25, 2023, Come meet Emily Hurd and Andrew Nosek who will share their new book, Witchy Wisdom. Every page of Witchy Wisdom has a unique piece of Nosek’s art overlaid with Hurd’s poetry. It offers inspiration, affirmations, and poems of deep inner work. Their sincere wish is that you find words of hope, something you can relate to, that uplifts you, or inspires you to do some writing, journaling, or drawing of your own. Never stop creating
