A summer series is offering information about issues concerning seniors and caregivers during lunchtime on Thursdays.
It also aims to spark conversation and provide support.
Programs are from noon to 1 p.m. in the Lawrence Public Library’s gallery room, 707 Vt., and participants should bring a sack lunch. Drinks and a light dessert will be provided. They are free and no registration is necessary.
