Sep. 9, 2020: Are you searching for something new this fall? Join Gramatan Village and make it your best fall of all. Say yes to new friends, exciting programs, and lifelong learning.
We can't wait for autumn to arrive. This fall, Gramatan Village will be presenting a new MasterClass each month with acclaimed instructors.
In honor of 2020 being an election year, the first class will be "U.S. Presidential History and Leadership" taught by Pulitzer-Prize winning historian and author Doris Kearns Goodwin.
Every month will feature a new virtual healthcare workshop as part of an ongoing Vitality Series with NewYork Presbyterian-Lawrence Hospital. This September, Dr. Lourdes Dominguez will explore Helping a Loved One with Dementia.
Mark Brownstein, Medicare expert, will lead a workshop called "Straight Talk About Medicare" to answer all your Medicare questions, and we will explore a two-part Road Scholar Lecture "Picasso's Masterworks" with art historian Dr. Matthew Palcynski, PhD. On September 22nd, the first day of fall, join us for a fun Welcome Fall Zoom Party.
In addition to these engaging offerings, Gramatan Village will continue with favorite regular programming, such as Book Club, Men's Group, Women's Group, Mystery Club, Mind Games, and Breakfast Club. Counseling and a Well Spouse Support Group are also available.
This September, Gramatan Village welcomes college intern Carly Acuna, who will host intergenerational activities with our members. Gramatan Village also offers the opportunity for members to serve as virtual mentors for college students.
Do you need help Zooming and in becoming more tech savvy? Don't worry! We have you covered with our Techy Teens Volunteers! Are you interested in becoming a volunteer with Gramatan Village? There are enjoyable opportunities for you to engage with others by chatting with members over Zoom and the phone, as well as to serve as a volunteer driver and help with errands.
