We are reaching the end of a long repair path after our burst pipe back in February, but we're tentatively looking at reopening on Monday, April 10th. I have some great adult programming going on in April that I'd love if you could share with your communities.
4/11 6pm Patriot Fife and Drum
David Vose and Sue Walko are seasoned musicians having performed music for over 40 years between them. David Vose is a recently retired professor from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1999, he was inducted into the Massachusetts Educators Hall of Fame. In 2019 he was inducted into the World Drum Corps Hall of Fame! Sue Walko is an experienced fifer having grown up in the hot bed area of fifes and drums in the state of Connecticut and playing in various fife and drum corps. Vose and Walko teamed up to perform fife and drum music from the 17th and 18th century and also play music for special holidays. They talk about their instruments that they are playing and history and do it an energetic and entertaining manner. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Wells Public Library.

4/21 12pm-1:30pm York Hospital's Center for Older Adults Lunch and Learn: Depression and Anxiety in Older Adults
Join the Brandon Rivard, PA-C from the Center for Older Adults to learn more about the differences between depression, anxiety, and dementia in aging adults. We will cover how these disorders present themselves in the aging population, how they can affect your memory and thinking, and what you can do to mitigate these effects. Complimentary boxed lunches will be available “to-go” after the program concludes. This is a hospital-sponsored lecture; MASKS will be supplied for all attendees. We ask that lunches be consumed AFTER leaving rather than in a congregate setting.
