Please stop by the greenhouse beginning May 3rd and get your gardens growing! The greenhouse open hours are Friday and Saturday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. Please don’t forget to thank all the volunteers there for everything they have done to help our community.

The ACC and community is sad to see the greenhouse end. Fifteen volunteers put a lot of time and effort into providing the folks in our community with herbs, vegetables, and flowers to enjoy through the season. Many of our local nonprofits will miss their generous donations from the profits that the greenhouse provided.

Thursday, May 9th from 5:00 – 6:00 pm, the Care Council and Experience, Inc. will have a presenter from the Attorney General’s Office of Public Engagement, Allen McGill. Allen is well educated in the issues and concerns of what our children and teens are learning and how social media influences them.

As parents or grandparents, we want you to be informed and educated on this ever-increasing part of our digital world. A sampling of topics to be covered include: approved apps, private profiles, protecting personal information, how to report and block negative messaging, turning off geo-location services, and creating a family media agreement.

A Q&A session will be available after the lecture. The meeting is at the old Bridges building right next to the Area Agency on Aging (905 4th Street, Warren). For more information, please call Kim at 814-723-4180.
