There’s an interesting class series for older adults coming up at the Lonsdale Clinic starting Sept. 15.
“Aging Mastery Program” is a 10-week series for adults 55+ to make small life changes that put more living into longer lives. The series was created by the National Council on Aging. It is presented by Northfield Senior Center, in partnership with Northfield Hospital & Clinics, for the Lonsdale community. Each session covers a topic of interest to older adults, led by a local expert.
First job? I was a lifeguard, and I worked in a bookstore in the mall. I was around 15. It was right when the fourth Harry Potter book was coming out, so there was a lot of excitement in the bookstore. Being a lifeguard was great too, because I got to hang out with all my friends.
Free time? Spending time with my family and my kids. I don’t have a lot of time for hobbies; my hobby is my kids. I also enjoy reading, but I don’t do it as much as I like.
