Savvy Seniors, a Lunch and Learn Opportunity
Thursdays, April 7-May 26, 2016 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Melissa Huemmer, LCSW and counselor at CHH, will guide participants through discussions on topics pertinent to dealing with aging. This is designed to be a fun and helpful experience where people can express themselves and seek information and support in a compassionate environment. Topics will be adjusted to suit the needs of the group, but past sessions have included discussions about Maintaining Social Connections, Having Fun, Dealing with Physical and/or Memory Changes, Adjusting to Transitions in Living Situations and Dealing with Fears and Anxieties. Cost is $20 per session (bring a lunch, we provide drinks) and we must have at least six participants to proceed with the group; you do not have to be associated with St. Paul’s to attend – bring a friend!! Please contact Melissa Huemmer at Melissa.huemmer@chhcary.org or by calling 919-414-0668 to register, or to learn more specifics about the group.

How to Organize Your Personal Finances to Avoid Stress
Monday, April 11, 2016, 7:00 PM at CHH

It is not surprising that the American Psychological Association identified money as a somewhat or very significant source of stress for the majority of Americans in 2015. We have asked St. Paul’s parishioner Bill Gautier, a Financial Advisor with Davenport & Company, to give us a few pointers on how to tackle some of that stress by getting organized and putting a plan into action. This course is offered free of charge and will be limited to 25 participants. Please contact Mary Kintz at info@chhcary.org to register or ask for more information.
