“Do Your Kids a Favor…and Take Control of Your Possessions” topic of Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – Possessions can be a comfort but quickly become a burden when life changes unexpectedly. How to proactively reduce clutter while preserving memories is the theme of the next Seniors Count workshop.
The free workshop is scheduled for Monday, June 9 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, 70 Temple St. It begins at 1:00pm.
The presentation will offer practical resources for seniors who desire to reduce accumulated possessions but don’t know where to begin. It will include critical questions to ask for letting go of things and suggestions for including family members in the process.
Workshop presenter is Carol-Martin Ward, owner of Practical Organizing Solutions.
Advance registration for the workshop is requested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
