“Joy Riding” with Island Connections
(Tue. 13 Nov, 2018 9:30 am - 11:30 am)

“Joy Riding” with Island Connections

SOUTHWEST HARBOR – Would you like to increase the joy in your life? Come to the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Tuesday, November 13, 9:30-11:30 a.m. for coffee, pastry, and to learn more about “Joy Riding,” or how to become a volunteer driver with Island Connections.

Island Connections is a nonprofit organization located in Bar Harbor that has been providing free transportation for seniors and people with disabilities on Mount Desert Island and the surrounding islands for over 21 years. Volunteer drivers take people to medical appointments, cancer and dialysis treatments, outpatient surgeries, grocery shopping, and/or food pantry visits and to meet other basic needs. The people who sign up for rides are very appreciative of the service and the “joyful” rides that are provided, enjoying interactions with the warm and caring drivers ranging from basic exchanges of pleasantries, updates on the weather, to discussions about current affairs or family life. All rides are given with complete confidentiality and each person’s dignity is respected. The experience is a win/win for the neighbor and their family as well as for the volunteer, who has been given the opportunity to give back not only to their community, but to individuals wishing to continue living independently in their homes.

The need for volunteer drivers is at a critical point, with the request for rides out-pacing volunteer recruitment. No pre-registration is needed for this event, just come to the Library to learn more. And bring a friend!

If you have questions or to find out more about Island Connections and becoming a volunteer driver, please contact Dana Mastroianni at Island Connections by phone at 288-4457, via email at [email protected], or visit www.islandconnections.org.

Midwives and Safe Motherhood: Promoting Respectful Care for Women
(Wed. 14 Nov, 2018 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm)

Midwives and Safe Motherhood: Promoting Respectful Care for Women

SOUTHWEST HARBOR – Come to the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Wednesday, November 14, 6:30 p.m. for a talk by Linda Robinson, Certified Nurse Midwife, on her experiences teaching and advocating for women’s health and empowerment in Africa.

Respectful care for women is a universal right that is often ignored. Ethnicity, economic status, geographical location, and allocation of resources all influence the culture of care. Educating women to advocate for themselves and demand respectful care is key. Respect for women across cultural barriers and more fairly allocated resources is a realistic vision and goal.

Linda Robinson was a founding member for the Lisa Stewart Women's Health Center in Bar Harbor and retired in 2015 after 23 years of service as a Certified Nurse Midwife with Mount Desert Island Hospital. She spent the past two years living and working in Malawi, Africa,

teaching midwifery at Kamuzu College of Nursing. She was part of the Global Health

Service Partnership, a partnership between SEED Global Health and the Peace Corps. This

organization sends midwives, nurses, and doctors to teach in five countries in Africa to

train medical professionals in their national setting, utilizing available resources.

She will present on her experiences in Africa including a short background of the organization, the country, the work, and efforts to create ways to empower women. She started a class to

give women a chance to learn a skill they could do at home, a project to teach women

with no formal education some skills to increase their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

They learned to make jewelry out of local and donated materials, learned simple business

concepts, and how to find unique markets to sell their creations. Some of their jewelry

will be on display and for sale.

For more information, call the Library, 244-7065, or visit www.swhplibrary.org.

Community Thanksgiving Dinner
(Thu. 22 Nov, 2018 11:00 am - 1:00 pm)

Calendar item: There will be a free Community Thanksgiving Dinner from 11:00 to 1 p.m. on November 22 the Guilford United Methodist Church on the corner of North Main and School streets in Guilford. Take-out meals and rides to the event are available, but all are invited to enjoy a meal together and to socialize on-site, as well. Donations of food and cash, as well as volunteers to cook, set up, serve and clean up are also being sought for this event. For more information, call Kirsty Pratley, 876-4261.

PSA: Volunteers, food items sought for free community Thanksgiving dinner

GUILFORD -- This will be the 15th annual Thanksgiving dinner offered to the community, by the community. The meal is scheduled for 11:00 to 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, November 22 at the Guilford United Methodist Church on the corner of North Main and School streets in Guilford. Take-out meals are available. Delivered meals and rides to the event may be offered if enough volunteers are available.

Even though the meal is at a church, organizer Kirsty Pratley said it is not a church-related event, but is held there because the facility is donated and features a kitchen and large dining area suitable for hosting dinner for the 60 to 80 people who attend each year.

Volunteers are needed to cook and deliver food to the church, to serve food, to socialize with the guests, to deliver meals to the homebound, and to clean up after the meal. Donations of cooked foods delivered to the church by 10 a.m. are being sought, as are donations of cash, and food items.

“Right now, we still need everything,” said Pratley on November 1. “This is a shared blessing, as the goal is for those who provide food to make a dish they like, or make extra of what they are already making for their own Thanksgiving dinner at home, and bring the extra to the church, hot in a crock pot or foil pan. Some people like to make pies, so they make an extra pie. Others are going elsewhere for Thanksgiving, so they have an oven that is free to cook and donate a turkey. For those who prefer not to cook or are away for Thanksgiving but want to donate, we do purchase frozen peas, butter, drinks, whipped cream, milk, coffee, etcetera, and would gladly accept those food items, as well. Some folks donate money, and that goes to purchase what we need when we get down to the wire.”

Any cash left over after each year’s event is donated to the local food cupboard. Leftover food is packed up and sent home with the guests.

“We had entertainment last year,” Pratley said. “It would be great to have some again this year, if there are any musicians out there with free time between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.”

To donate, volunteer or obtain information about the free Thanksgiving dinner, call Kirsty Pratley, 876-4261.

Graceful Aging: Therapeutic Movement Classes for Seniors

Graceful Aging: Therapeutic Movement Classes for Seniors

SOUTHWEST HARBOR –  Come to the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Wednesday, November 28, at 1:30 p.m. for a talk by Susan Sassaman, certified yoga, dance, and tai chi instructor, on how exercise and movement classes improve our health and help us age in place.

Sassaman, who has been teaching on MDI for 25 years, started the Graceful Aging program this year. It includes classes in Chair Yoga, Tai Chi for Health, Yoga for Cancer, Let Your Yoga Dance, Meditation, and Fitness for Parkinson’s. She will be at the library to discuss the health benefits and positive psychology of exercise. Topics of discussion will include how movement keeps our immune system strong, reduces stress and loneliness, brings a sense of well-being, prevents falls, reduces both pain and doctor visits, and helps us stay at home and age in place.

Participants also will be invited to try a sampling of seated tai chi and seated yoga postures.

The Graceful Aging Program is an initiative of Healthy Acadia, working in Hancock and Washington Counties, dedicated to building vibrant communities and making it easier for people to make healthy choices for themselves and their families.

For more information about this event, please call the Library, 244-7065. To learn more about the Graceful Aging program, visit http://barharboryogadance.com/Graceful_Aging.html.

Charcuterie Talk with Chef David O'Brien
(Thu. 29 Nov, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Learn more about charcuterie with Chef David O’Brien at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. Charcuterie refers to the process of slowly drawing out moisture from meats, by the use of salts and spices and includes things like sausage, pâté, bacon and more. He will also have some samples of things he has made that you can taste that evening.    O’Brien will give a brief history of the how and why charcuterie came to be and will talk about how it is used today. He will cover how you can safely cure your own products at home, as well as the incorrect techniques that could lead to introducing pathogens into your food.    O’Brien attended the Culinary Institute of America and worked in Manhattan for a year at a Michelin starred restaurant, Wallse. He also worked at the Burning Tree in Otter Creek where he focused on preparing garden to table foods and fish dishes. O’Brien currently works at 555, a fine dining restaurant in Portland, Maine, that focuses on hyper-seasonal ingredients.    For more information on this talk, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]
