WILMINGTON- Once again this summer season, the Aging in Place Initiative will be sponsoring a weekly, free lecture series on subjects useful and interesting, not just to seniors but to the public in general. Town nurse Jennifer Fitzgerald, who seems to have contacts all the way from Wilmington to Fiji, has lined up a fine list of folks who will speak and then chair roundtable discussions this year. The programs will be held in the downstairs space at St. Mary’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church at 3 pm every Thursday afternoon through September 28.

Thursday, July 20, is devoted to Death and Dying 101. Not a subject most folks love to address, but knowing the local options available can make future end of life experiences much more manageable. Bettina Berg will be the speaker.

Thursday, July 27, will feature Bill Schmidt talking about care groups in other towns. Does the Deerfield Valley need a version of the rural, organized response that some other towns have built to coordinate their neighbors’ need for medical rides, access to nutritional food, and other kinds of help especially for the isolated or ill? These roundtable discussions will continue throughout August and September.
