WILMINGTON- The Aging in Place Initiative will continue to offer its Thursday afternoon informational series of lectures and round-table discussions. The discussion will be held at 3 pm in the community room downstairs at St. Mary’s in the Mountains church on East Main Street.

On August 10, Jan Terk and Christine Fayette, from the MOOver, will showcase the many services the local transportation service offers. If a person can no longer drive, living in a rural area presents many challenges and the MOOver has been working for years to address those needs.

On August 17, Diane Chapman, from Chapman’s Antiques, will talk about downsizing. Kids do not want their parents’ stuff. What to do with a lifetime of prized possessions when lives change?

On August 24, David Warner and Abby Eldridge, from Senior Solutions, formerly the Council on Aging, will explain what most do not know about long term care insurance, all that fine print that poses limitations on its use.

On August 31, Nicki Steel, a local nature photographer and artist, will present her archive of photographs taken from late May 2016 through May 2017 of the birth and fledging of 13 baby blue herons in the heronry deep in Marlboro, requiring 12 hikes.
