Are you interested in talking history?


Are you interested in reading and talking about history with others? If so, please join us and bring your ideas and experiences as we continue a history discussion group at the Senior Center.
The discussions will cover many historical subjects based on the preferences of the group. Please come and bring your friends who might also be interested.
Facilitated by Jim Van Liere, the group meets the third Wednesday of every month.
The next meeting will be June 19 at 1 p.m. in the Community Café dining room at the Pagosa Springs Senior Center.

Caregiver support group
The next scheduled Caregiver Support Group is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and will be facilitated by Elaine Stumpo.
If you are a caregiver of a friend or a family member, please join us for this support and respite group. Adults 18 and older are eligible to participate. A support group can have significant positive effects on caregivers’ overall well-being. It is a chance to speak with other caregivers who have common experiences with caregiving, learn about resources available in the community and nationally, learn how to keep yourself healthy so you can better deliver the care, and is a chance for respite.
Learn practical self-care information, talk through challenges and ways of coping and learn about community resources and support.
For more information, please call 264-2167.
