Resident Gallery Art
Capitol Lakes residents who have art work they would like displayed in the Residents Gallery should call
575-3154. The art work can be your own, a family member's, or art that you have collected. It does not need to professional. Help will be given with hanging and take down of the art.
Resident Speaker Series
The Program Committee is looking at developing a summer speaker series which would feature our residents, who would share an interesting story about a career highlight, a World War II story, a hobby, or an unusual experience that might be of interest to others. If you have a story to tell, please contact Mary Hanson at 283-2003.
World Religions Discussion
On Saturday, May 11th, at 10:45 AM in the Heights Chapel, Brian McCarthy will lead a discussion titled "World Religions: Their Amazing Durability". If people are interested, this discussion could be the first of five or six sessions on the theme. What do we know of the Origins and Founders of these religions? Stop by and join the discussion.
Cell Phone Reminder
Please turn off your cell phone when attending events in the Grand Hall.
Health Tips from the Health Services Committee
Hiccups are usually minor and short-lived, if a little embarrassing and inconvenient. But, hiccups are no laughing matter and can be associated with an underlying medical condition. So if they continue and are unremitting, you should check with your doctor. (from doctors at Harvard Medical School)
All trips depart from the Henry St. Circle entrance. Sign up at the MainGate desk starting the Friday before the departure date, unless otherwise indicated.
