NEW, NEWS, & NOTEWORTHY

September Director's Message: Annual Report

Once again, we have had an amazing year at PSRC. Some of the accomplishments are visible to you if you come in to the Center, while others are behind the scenes. Some highlights:

  • Most noticeable may be the new Stark Community Room with new furnishing and soft lighting to welcome you and encourage you to visit with others.
  • We moved several Evergreen Forum classes to the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville. This enabled us to increase the number of classes with additional classroom and parking space. This was more convenient for some participants, and we heard many positive responses.
  • Building on our work on marketing and branding, new brochures have been created for all programs and the weekly e-news and updates. We encourage you to sign up for the electronic newsletter or sign up to subscribe to the print edition.

You can watch last night’s PBS NewsHour while eating your Wheatabix, catch up on last week’s Late Show monologs, or reminisce with the Jack Benny Program from the 1960s, all courtesy of YouTube.  READ MORE

by Katie Thomas
NY Times, Sept. 14, 2017

The news that eight Florida nursing home residents died in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma has prompted a criminal investigation and spurred widespread outrage.

But it also poses unsettling, difficult questions for people selecting a nursing home for themselves or a loved one. This emotionally fraught choice often must be made at a chaotic moment when a relative is sick, his or her time in the hospital is running short and the options seem confusing. READ MORE
