Walker Library sets wellness, author events

Walker Memorial Library, 800 Main St., is hosting a wellness event for adults at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

“Stress on Wellness: Techniques to Stay Cool, Calm and Collected” features Deb Bergeron, founder of Ocean of Possibilities and a certified personal and professional life coach.

This presentation focuses on wellness and gives people many proven stress management techniques for successfully managing stress.

“Practicing the techniques can truly add years to your life and life to your years. So, stop worrying about all the stress you are experiencing, take advantage of these practical ideas and put the stress on wellness,” the library said in press release.

The Author Speaks Series continues with Maine author Monica Wood at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11, in Westbrook-Warren Congregational Church, 810 Main St. (next door to library).

Wood will read from her new memoir, “When We Were the Kennedys: A Memoir of Mexico, Maine.” A question-and-answer period with Wood will follow the reading along with a book signing.

Seniors meet, eat

Westbrook Senior Citizens will be served a ham dinner when the group meets at noon on Monday, Oct. 15, in the Westbrook Community Center, 426 Bridge St.

The meal includes ham, macaroni and cheese, beets and a brownie with whipped topping. Jim and Anna Donnally will entertain with easy- listening music.

The seniors group hopes to interest people in upcoming trips.  On Sunday, Nov. 4, the group, if there’s enough people interested, is proposing a trip to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut for a holiday show.

It will travel to Indian Head in Lincoln, N.H., for a Christmas show and buffet on Sunday, Dec. 9.

Next year, the seniors are considering two trips. One would be in February with a dinner at Mulligan’s in Biddeford and a show at Biddeford City Theater.

Another potential trip would be in March to see the Women of Ireland at Venus de Milo in Swansea, Mass.
