Join Jessica Robinson, author of New England Farmgirl: Recipes & Stories from a Farmer’s Daughter, to launch our adult summer reading program.

Jessica Robinson grew up on a farm in Burlington, CT where “farm-to-table” wasn’t an aspiration, it was her family’s way of life. Her new book will take you on a delicious journey through rural New England to experience the freshest tastes of the land. Come and meet Jessica and learn about life on the farm and how she came to write a cookbook. Autographed copies of her book will be available. Please join us for this fun and informative evening with random prizes! Read ‘Em and Eat entry forms will be available. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Dinner with friends, a movie with your spouse, or phone calls from grandchildren can become simple exercises in frustration if you’re straining to keep up with the conversation. Please join Hillary H. Lewis, Director of Audiology at Masonicare Health Center, as she discusses the many common misconceptions about hearing loss and amplification, explores the recent new features that have been made in hearing-aid technology, and explains how hearing rehabilitation and hearing-aids can greatly improve your quality of life. A complimentary lunch will be provided. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754 to ensure a meal.
