    Manhattan, 1939. New York socialite Caroline Ferriday's biggest problem is resisting the advances of a married actor. Across the Atlantic Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish Catholic teenager, is affected when Germany declares war on Poland. As tensions rise Caroline's interest in aiding the war effort in France grows; she hears about the dire situation at the Ravensbrück all-female concentration camp. Kasia's carefree youth is replaced by a fervor for the Polish resistance movement. Through Ravensbrück-- and the horrific atrocities taking place there told in part by an infamous German surgeon, Herta Oberheuser-- the two women's lives converge in unprecedented ways.

  • Game Night for Adults

    Whether you like to battle wits against or work together with others, tabletop gaming is a great way to socialize and exercise your mind. Light hearted games, deep strategy, or even cooperative play, there is a game out there for you - even if you have little or no experience with gaming. An unfamiliar game may sound intimidating to some, but this is a great way to try something new, meet new people, or maybe dip your toes in a popular hobby that you haven't tried before.

    We'll provide a small library of games to play including some of our favorites, like Coup, Settlers of Catan, and Forbidden Desert. Feel free to bring your own favorites as well!

  • Planning for a Purposeful Retirement


    Location: Shorewood Village Center

    While many pre-retirees plan and calculate their financial resources to ensure an adequate nest egg to fund their retirement, almost none invest time and energy planning the non-financial aspects.  This one-hour overview examines eight key elements that ensure that your retirement decision is not only financially viable, but emotionally and personally satisfying as well. Resources to start your own retirement plan are included.

    Theresa Bellone is a retirement lifestyle consultant specializing in assisting individuals with planning for retirement. She trained with the National Council on Aging to present retirement planning workshops which focus on non‐financial issues surrounding the decision to retire including such topics as the importance of planning, the wise use of time, relationships, leisure activities and housing. Theresa has over 25 years of experience in the aging field working directly with retired adults in a community center setting as well as with providers of services to older adults.
