Candid conversations about race are not easy. They often elicit feelings of grief, anger, frustration and a fear of being judged or misunderstood.
Join us in a safe, non judgmental space that allows perspectives to be exchanged, insights to be shared and beliefs and assumptions to be addressed in positive ways.
Productive conversations create understanding, growth and empathy. Most importantly, they are the first step in generating ideas and solutions for social change.
Joan is an SSC member and retired clinical social worker who has been on her own journey of increased self –awareness regarding racism and has led several groups on the topic of race.

Friday, December 10th
When you have a regular mortgage, you pay the lender every month to buy your home over time. In a reverse mortgage, you get a loan in which the lender pays you. Reverse mortgages take part of the equity in your home and convert it into payments to you. Reverse mortgages can help people who want to remain in their homes but
need to supplement their income.

SLN Programs November & December 2021
All times are 2 pm EST
The programs below are in person live streamed
at the Senior Center
(we have 5 spaces available for those who cannot attend in person)
Tues., Nov 23 Hoover Presidential Library and Museum
Herbert Clark Hoover, (August 10, 1874–October 20, 1964), mining engineer, humanitarian, U.S. Secretary of Commerce and the 31st President of the United States. In addition to public service, Hoover devoted his post-Presidential years to social causes such as the Boys Clubs of America and the Hoover Institution, a research center he had established on the Stanford campus in 1919. He also wrote more than 40 books during those years.
Hoover’s attention returned to Iowa late in the 1950s when he agreed to allow friends and associates to construct a “Presidential library” near the site of his birthplace. Hoover insisted that the building be modest in size in accordance with scale of the other buildings in the community. The former President made his last visit to Iowa on August 10, 1962, to dedicate that building to the American people. Join us at the Presidential Library and Museum to discover more!
Tues., Dec. 7: National Museum of Toys and Miniatures
What could be more fun than to spend the holidays at a Toy Museum? Join us as we take another visit to The Toy and Miniature Museum in Kansas City KS . More details about the specific program are forthcoming.
Thurs., Dec. 9: New River Gorge National Park
We’re off to to see America’s Newest National Park in “Wild Wonderful” West Virginia
In December 2020, this 73,000-acre slice of paradise, encompassing a whitewater river, limestone cliffs and deep canyons, became the country’s newest national park.
The lifeblood of the park is the New River, and despite its name it is believed to be one of the oldest rivers in the world. For more than 260 million years, it has run northeasterly from the Blue Ridge Mountains near Boone, North Carolina, through southwest Virginia and into West Virginia, cutting through the Appalachian Plateau and joining with the Gauley River to form the Kanawha River in south-central West Virginia. Join us as discover the breathtaking beauty of this park, and see for yourself why it is referred to as “ Almost Heaven” !
Tues., Dec 14 Clinton Presidential Library and Museum

Clinton Presidential Library and Museum is located within the Clinton Presidential Center and Park, which includes the Clinton Foundation (Little Rock office) and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. In addition to the archival collections and research facilities, the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum features exhibits that utilize documents, photographs, videos and interactive stations. The museum includes replicas of the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room. A timeline and alcoves highlight domestic and foreign policy, while other exhibits focus on life in the White House.
