In March, the Literary Lunch meets at the Jenks Center.
The book for discussion is Countdown by Deborah Wiles. Franny Chapman just wants
some peace. But that's hard to get when her best friend is feuding with her, her sister has
disappeared, and her uncle is fighting an old war in his head. Her saintly younger brother is
no help, and the cute boy across the street only complicates things. Worst of all, everyone is
walking around just waiting for the bomb to fall. It is 1962, and it seems the whole country is
living in fear. The McCall sixth grade will be joining us for this discussion.
Personal federal and state income tax returns for taxpayers with low and moderate income will be prepared and e-filed free of charge at the Jenks Center through Friday, April 11.

Tax sessions will run each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with appointments at 9:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m. and 12 noon. Please call 781-721-7136 for an appointment and remember to bring last year's tax return copy, as well as all pertinent 2013 tax information to your appointment.

Did you know that one in three people over the age of seventy will have a fall?
Five percent of these falls will result in a fracture while ten percent will
result in head trauma. Of those seniors who are hospitalized for a fall, only
fifty percent will survive one year later. While these statistics are shocking,
there are steps that you can take to improve your balance and prevent falls. Come
and learn the basics of improving your balance and modifying your environment to
reduce falls, while improving your health.
Are these cold temperatures getting to you? Would a nice warm meal in the middle
of the day help? Join the Eating Together Group on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Remember to sign up by the Friday of the week before the meals are to be served.
We have space for 30, so call early at 781-721-7136. Please remember to cancel your
lunch 24 hours ahead of time if you are unable to attend.
We look forward to seeing you!
