We hope all the mothers among our friends had a wonderful day on Sunday, filled with much love and appreciation.
This is the last week to help us support the Worcester – The City That Reads book drive. Donate your new or gently used books appropriate for students from kindergarten to eighth grade. If you buy a book just for donation, we will take an additional 10% off. The book drive ends on May 15.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a newsletter if we didn’t talk about our wonderful events—starting with ones for THIS WEEK!
THIS SATURDAY, May 14, from 2:00 – 4:00 PM, we’ll have former U.S. Army Finance Control Officer and business owner, Harris N. Rosen discussing financial and estate planning through My Family Record Book. Have you considered who will pay outstanding bills or run household finances when you’ve passed away? Often, families end up left behind, struggling to sort through paperwork to fulfill remaining financial obligations rather than taking the time to mourn their passed loved one. Join Mr. Rosen to find out how to make sure you and your family are prepared and given the chance to deal with emotional loss rather than be burdened with paperwork and finances.
And then, THIS SUNDAY, May 15, from 3:00 – 5:00 PM, we have two guests and a chance to win a beautiful, creepy photo print. Abandoned Asylums author L.F Blanchard and photographer Tammy Rebello speak and sign. They’ll discuss the research and contributions these old asylums have had to modern psychology and culture, as well as their impact on art and architecture—and the beauty of abandoned buildings. If you want a little more of what to expect, check out Tammy’s interview on our Spotlight Blog.
And our May continues with even more!
