ADULT EVENTS
Tewksbury Job Seekers Network: How To Power Network (*RR)
Monday, June 10, 2pm
Learn all the tools necessary to develop extensive networks that access the hidden job market and that will pay continuing dividends throughout one’s career. Attendees will learn a comprehensive step-by-step process that starts with people they already know and generates a continuing source of new and valued professional contacts. Through networking, many of these contacts become “helpers” in the job search and often become life-long professional or personal friends. Networking in a job search is truly relationship marketing of oneself in his/her target market. The presentation will give attendees a thorough overview of the total person-to-person networking process. Led by Eric Ross, who is often acknowledged as New England’s master networker. Ross landed his most recent position, Chief Operating Officer of New England Renewable Energy Systems, through the networking approach and methods explained in his Power Networking presentation.

RETIREMENT WEEK: How To Eat Healthy For Seniors (*RR)
Tuesday, June 11, 7pm
Join nutritionist and author Peg Doyle, M. Ed. for a lively and productive discussion on staying well after age 50. Contrary to popular belief, everything that goes wrong physically after the half-century mark is not necessarily due to “old age.” In this interactive presentation, Doyle will share some secrets to living a long, healthy, and potential medicine-free life. Doyle is the author of Food Becomes You - Simple Steps for Lifelong Wellness. A book selling and signing will follow the event for those interested.

RETIREMENT WEEK: Golf Injury Prevention 101 (*RR)
Wednesday, June 12, 10:30am
Back pain slowing your golf game? Shoulder pain limiting your swing? Join Jaimee Mace, MSPT, for a presentation on golf injury prevention. Learn about the most common golf course injuries, reasons why they happen, and exercises you can do to help prevent them. You will get tips about how to reduce pain during every day activities and learn key stretches that can keep you on the golf course for years to come. Mace received her Master’s in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University in 1999. Most of her clinical experience has been in outpatient orthopedics/sports medicine settings. And while she isn’t a very good golfer herself, she is married to one, so knows first-hand about the aches and pains that can go with the sport.
