“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.

Come to the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Wednesday, November 14, at 6:30 p.m. for a talk by Linda Robinson, CNM, on her experiences teaching and advocating for women’s health and empowerment in Africa. For more information, call the Library, 244-7065 or visit www.swhplibrary.org.
