Video Lecture Series, Movie Screenings Showing at Pine Street Recreation Building

Feb 21, 2019

At the Feb. 19 meeting of the Stafford Township mayor and council, Councilman Paul Krier, liaison to the recreation department and senior programs, announced some upcoming events that may be of interest to seniors or their caregivers, or to fans of movies and education in general.

The Senior Advisory Committee will screen the documentary “Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory” on Thursday, Feb. 28, at 10 a.m. in the community viewing room at the Pine Street Recreation Building behind the Bay Avenue Community Center. Krier said it’s “a joyous exploration of music’s capacity to reawaken our brains”; the SAC hopes to develop a program that will use the gift of music to aid caregivers in reconnecting with their loved ones who have dementia.

Starting March 1, on every first Friday enjoy a matinee movie, ranging from old Hollywood classics to recent releases. Showtime is 1 p.m.; popcorn will be served. The first movie is “Return to Me,” the 2000 rom-com starring David Duchovny and Minnie Driver.

“The Aging Brain,” produced by The Great Courses, is a free, weekly six-part video lecture series beginning March 7 and continuing each Thursday from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

To attend any of the above, contact Deb Budesa at 609-597-1000, extension 8583 or dbudesa@staffordnj.gov.  —V.F.
