February 3, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Bemis Hall
As we age we confront loss in many forms. It may be the death of loved ones or physical or cognitive changes in loved ones, friends or in ourselves. It may include regrets about lost opportunities or the recognition of our own mortality. Claire Gerstein, LICSW, a social worker with many years of experience helping people navigate the losses of later life, will facilitate a group which will give people the opportunity to talk about these issues in a supportive environment. The six-week group will run on Mondays from 10:00 to 11:00 beginning on February 3 at Bemis Hall. Please call the COA at (781) 259-8811 to sign up!

Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, February 3 at 12:30 pm when Ariane Liazos discusses “Reforming the City: The Contested Origins of Urban Government, 1890–1930.” Most American cities are now administered by appointed city managers and governed by councils chosen in nonpartisan, at-large elections. In the early twentieth century, many urban reformers claimed these structures would make city government more responsive to the popular will. But on the whole, the effects of these reforms have been to make citizens less likely to vote in local elections and local governments less representative of their constituents. How and why did this happen? Lincoln resident and author Ariane Liazos will examine the urban reform movement that swept through the country in the early twentieth century and its unintended consequences. The COA provides beverages and dessert.
