As one of our participants has said, “I learn something new each time I come to the group.” We know there are more people with hearing issues who have never come to the group; we suggest people attend the meetings for valuable information. The next meeting is Thursday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m.
WHY WATCH MOVIES
Jack Nicholsen said during one of his Oscar award ceremonies, “they entertain us, they offer hope (and) give traumas; they take us places, we’ve never been, just even for a few moments; they can take us away, when we want to get away; movies inspire us; they challenge us and despite our differences, they are (the) common link to humanity, in all of us.” Movies let us escape from our world, let us experience someone very different from ourselves. Movies can open up the world to us, experiencing new places, new emotions, new relationships, reality and make us laugh and cry. Movies are magic. Join us at the Center for our movie presentations hosted by Joan Lee.
