Enriching Life, Increasing Knowledge – Downsizing & Organizing for Seniors

October 30 at 10am – noon

‘Declutter and Get Organized’ with Theresa Mayhew

Have too much stuff? Theresa will teach how to decide what to eliminate, and how to simply organize what you chose to keep.

Getting organized is probably the number one New Year’s resolution that people make. If it’s yours, and you’re struggling to get started (or back on track), this program can help you reach that goal. Don’t let the accumulation of stuff and piles of papers hold you back. This workshop will help you identify why you’re holding on to clutter and share suggestions on how to let it go! In the process, you might even unearth some hidden or long forgotten treasures. Information on where to sell your no longer needed, wanted or used stuff will also be shared.

It began with the cleaning of a few grave markers in an overgrown field.  It ended with the discovery of Kinderhook’s Persons of Color Cemetery from the 1800s.

Documentarian Barbara Reina will show her film, “Brought to Light,” about the rediscovery of a forgotten “slaves’ cemetery,” which led to an exploration of Kinderhook’s non-white population, and bringing respect back to their final burial site.

A Q&A will follow the film.

This event is made possible partly with public funds from the Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation
