Friends Village unveils exciting spring event lineup

Friends Village, a non-profit retirement community located in historic Newtown, is set to captivate residents and guests alike with its diverse and enriching spring programming.

Highlighting the roster is John Davison’s exploration of the extraordinary life of Paul Robeson, an iconic figure celebrated for his cultural contributions and activism. Davison, a former history teacher known for his wit and musical talents, will delve into Robeson’s personal journey in “Paul Robeson, An American Life,” scheduled for February 27th at 2:00pm. This event promises an insightful glimpse into Robeson’s enduring impact on American history.

Continuing the schedule is a four-week workshop titled “Writing It Out,” led by seasoned author and educator Terry Culleton. Commencing on April 9th at 3:00pm and spanning four Thursdays, the workshop aims to unlock personal experiences through various writing modes, providing a nurturing space for self-expression and exploration.

For older adults who wish to learn more about technology, Friends Village presents the next training session of its popular Senior Planet training program, starting on April 29th.

The five-week course on “Computer Essentials” and workshops on “Getting to Know Your Smartphone” cater to individuals aged 60 and above. Due to the program’s popularity and limited seating, interested participants are encouraged to reserve their spots promptly.  Those who miss the opportunity to join this training quarter will be placed on a waiting list and given priority seating for future training sessions.

All these exciting events will unfold at the Friends Village Styer Campus, located at 331 Lower Dolington Road in Newtown.  Registration for all programs is offered at no cost.
