Avon - Grief: When Ho, Ho, Ho Becomes Woe, Woe, Woe
Posted on: 2019-11-25
What: When Ho, Ho, Ho Becomes Woe, Woe, Woe
Where: Avon Senior Center, 635 West Avon Rd., Avon, CT 06001
When: Thursday, December 19, 2019, 2:00 pm
The merriment, social engagement and frenzy of the holiday season can be upsetting for people who are wrestling with the loss of loved ones, illness, financial or family problems, and other challenges to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. This program will explore the ways in which grief can be triggered during the holidays and will offer suggestions to reduce distress and boost spirits.
Presented by Marilyn Sponzo who provides spiritual care at McLean Health Center. A retired lawyer with a specialty in investment law, Marilyn is currently a student in the master's of divinity program at Chicago Theological Seminary, where her focus is on spiritual care for seniors. Marilyn lives with her husband and assorted pets in her North Granby home - aptly named "Chateau Bow Wow."
The McLean Hospice Care team responds non-judgmentally to individual needs and concerns to provide physical, social and emotional well-being - all while maintaining your loved one's personal dignity. They're also a specially trained LGBT inclusive organization. For family members and caregivers, they offer support and education to help them better understand what's happening at any particular point in time and what to expect moving forward.

Simsbury - A Christmas Carol Dessert Gala with Storytelling
Posted on: 2019-11-11
What: A Christmas Carol Dessert Gala with Storytelling
Where: The Storyteller's Cottage, 750 Hopmeadow St., Simsbury, CT 06070
When: Thursday December 12th from 7:00-9:00 pm.
Enjoy a festive night out with a charming reading of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" by Great Britain native Jennifer Munro, accompanied by live Christmas carols sung by the Simsbury High School Singers, mulled cider, and traditional British Christmas pudding! Nationally acclaimed storyteller Jennifer Munro will bring the real spirit of Christmas alive with her dramatic reading of the timeless classic. "A Christmas Carol" is a story that, in its creation, Dickens wept over, laughed over, and wept over again - and you will too, as Munro, using a multitude of voices, breathes life into the miserly Scrooge, the ghosts, and the rogues and rascals in the "low-browed beetling shop." This is theater at its simplest and most eloquent. You may also wish to BYOB. Come celebrate an old-fashioned Christmas by the fire in a beautiful Victorian library! Thursday December 12th from 7:00-9:00 pm. Cost: $30 (includes your entertainment, dessert, and non-alcoholic drinks) Pre-registration is required
