The West Tisbury library hosts Healthy Aging M.V. while they present an Advance Care Planning Workshop on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 5 pm. The hope is that you come away from this workshop empowered to have “the conversation” with those who care about you. You will be provided with all of the resources needed, including advance directives to fill out when ready. You will also learn who needs a copy of those forms, so they are available when needed. Email to sign up.

Class starts with singing, stretching, basic ballet technique, and creative movement games/exercises, and class will conclude with a ballet-themed storytime. Email for the Zoom invitation. At 2 pm, the Yard’s Jesse Keller Jason will lead online Adult Community Dance Class.
