Importance of Self-Care and Successful Caregiving (HYBRID)

Wednesday, May 25 from 10 - 11am

Special program from Stacey Cullen, Barnstable Council on Aging Caregiver/ Support Services Coordinator!
On an airplane, an oxygen mask descends in front of you. What do you do? As we all know, the first rule is to put on your own oxygen mask before you assist anyone else. Only when we first help ourselves can we effectively help others. Caring for yourself is one of the most important—and one of the most often forgotten—things you can do as a caregiver. When your needs are taken care of, the person you care for will benefit, too “Family Caregiver Alliance”

Falmouth Road Race Author Talk with Paul Clerici (IN-PERSON)

Monday, August 15 at 6:00pm

 

The history of this fascinating race spans 47 years, and Clerici, an award-winning journalist and freelance writer, will share the behind-the-scenes tales and tidbits he’s culled from hundreds of interviews with runners and supporters connected with Falmouth’s famous 7-miler.

Hear about the runner who swam across the harbor. Learn how legendary coach Bill Squires and his Greater Boston Track Club athletes ignited the race’s competition and how the race’s inspiration – Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter – came to Falmouth.  Find out why 6-time champion Joan Benoit Samuelson nearly missed one year due to her race-morning boat ride.

This compelling story is told through nearly 80 vintage and race-day photographs that span decades, including some which have never been published before. Author Paul Clerici, who has run the Falmouth Road Race several times and the Boston Marathon 23 years in a row, is also the author of the “Boston Marathon History by the Mile” and “History of the Greater Boston Track Club” books.
