News Release for the Week of June 18, 2018



Thursday June 21, 4 pm, the movie Murder on the Orient Express will be shown. When a luxurious train is stranded in the snow and a man is murdered in his compartment, the crime is investigated by a famous detective who is also a passenger. He discovers that many of the passengers knew the victim from years before in connection with the kidnapping and murder of a three year old heiress. When the murder victim's true identity is revealed, suspicion falls on 13 travelers who are linked to the original case through their ties to the child's family and the tragedy. $2 at the door. 


Last chance to pick up tickets for the annual Enfield Police Senior Picnic being held on June 20 at 12 noon, rain or shine.  Join us for this fun-filled lunch with entertainment by Dave Colucci. Bring a chair and enjoy the day.  Free tickets are available for pick up at the Enfield Police station.  Bring proof of Enfield residency.


TED Talks, Thursday, June 21, 10:30 am. The group will watch a TED Talk, then discuss our thoughts on the matter. What Are Animals Thinking and Feeling?  What's going on inside the brains of animals? Can we know what, or if, they're thinking and feeling? Carl Safina thinks we can. Using discoveries and anecdotes that span ecology, biology and behavioral science, he weaves together stories of whales, wolves, elephants and albatrosses to argue that just as we think, feel, use tools and express emotions, so too do the other creatures – and minds – that share the Earth with us.


If you have a general legal inquiry or a question about wills, estates, real estate or elder law, call the Senior Center office to schedule a free Legal Consultation appointment on the third Tuesday of the month, with Bridgid Murray or Russ Tyler of Tyler & Tyler, Attorneys at Law. Tuesday, Jun 19, 10 am – Noon
