The 11th Annual "Walk Supporting Addiction Recovery" kicks off networking, resources, live music and more at 5:30pm, with The Walk beginning at 6:30pm on Main Street South in Woodbury with a stop at the halfway point at a memorial set up for the now 32 loved ones lost to overdose from the towns of Woodbury and Bethlehem. Upon returning to The Hollow, an emotional candlelight vigil will be held to support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the taken and encourage those in the struggle of addiction to never ever give up HOPE. There will be a variety of resources available at the Hollow for those looking for information on addiction as well.

What's On Now

Enjoy a FREE pizza dinner, provided by The Lutheran Home of Southbury before our screening of The Leisure Seeker  starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as a runaway couple going on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker, travelling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West. They recapture their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end. Sign Up is a MUST and we will need to know if you're coming by September 13th. Also, please let us know if you're a Woodbury resident in need of the senior bus for transportation to and from the movie.

You're invited to a "pig" roast sponsored by the Woodbury Resident Trooper's Office and ASAP (Advocates for Substance Abuse Prevention). This free evening of food and fun is a great way to celebrate the end of summer and coming fall!

Come join Amelia as she teachers (and refreshes!) the art of knitting and crocheting.

Hosted by Hartford Hospital graduate nurses. "Though we don't like to think about it, a change in health or an accident can happen to any of us. That's why it's important for all of us, regardless of age or health, to have a plan that documents our health care wishes in case we become unable to make important treatment decisions, or communicate choices. Five Wishes is changing the way we talk about advance care planning by focusing on what matters most to you", including your health, legal representatives, what is most important to you, any faith or religious practices you wish to be observed, and what you want people you love to know about you. Call 203-263-2828 to reserve your seat at this important program.

Fire Cider Event with the Grounded Goodwife

Friday, September 7

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Woodbury Senior Community Center

Some of the most interesting and important things in history are omitted because they're taboo.  The Not-So-Golden Life of the Gilded Age Wife is "herstory" unsanitized. Herstory helps us understand each other by honoring our foremothers' journeys. This presentation isn't about spinning wheels, quilting bees, bustles, or butlers - audiences will laugh and grimace about the little-known issues faced by women of America's Gilded Age. Perhaps women need to be reminded of how far we've come in order to see how far we still can go.  Join the Grounded Goodwife team at the Woodbury Public Library on Thursday, September 27 at 7:00 pm and go back in time to see how much has changed for present day women.  The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is open to all, however space is limited and registration is required. Register at www.woodburylibraryct.org or 203-263-3502.

Woodbury Senior Center is starting an intergenerational community ukulele band! Want to join the fun? You don't have to be a senior-all ages are welcome. The only pre-requisite is a desire to have fun, learn to play the ukulele, and a good send of humor. Come to one of the demo sessions (with or without a uke)!


Want to try before you buy a ukulele? You can check a ukulele out at the Woodbury Public Library with your library card!
Woodbury Ukulele Band's first meetup will be at the Woodbury Senior Community Center on Friday, October 5 at 7 p.m. Monthly meetings going forward to be determined by the group.
 
Questions? Call Loryn Ray at the Woodbury Senior Community Center at 203-263-2828 or visit the website at www.woodburyukes.org. The Woodbury Ukulele Band is made possible through a grant from the Woodbury Bethlehem Community Music Foundation.
