Advance Care Planning Weekly Zoom Information Sessions: Advance Care Planning ensures that your loved ones and health professionals know what you want in a medical emergency when you are unable to speak for yourself. It's a process of creating a written health care plan (Advance Directive) that tells others what you would want if you couldn't tell them yourself. Advance Care Planning includes discussing choices about end-of-life (EOL) care with your medical provider, family and others. It involves choosing and educating your Health Care Agent and making informed decisions to complete an Advance Directive. Join us and learn more. 10-11 a.m. on Wednesdays. Find out if adding a COVID-19 or Dementia provision would be beneficial to include or add to a previously completed Advance Directive. Free. Zoom.

Community building

Interpreting Historical Landscapes in the Upper River Valley (via Zoom): Achaeologist Gail Golec will discuss historic resources and archaeological sites in the Upper Connecticut River Valley. Often these resources and sites are looked upon as isolated finds rather than a wider community with a shared history. Learning to view geographical landscapes, natural resources and historical events as interconnected creates a more accurate understanding of our culture and times and better informs us how to preserve and interpret resources. 7 p.m. Offered through Rockingham Library, this is a collaboration with the Rockingham Historic Preservation Commission and National Park Service. Golec has undertaken research on the Contact Period/Early Colonial Settlement, 18th/19th-century cemeteries and documenting the lives of Indigenous and African American community members of the Greater Falls and Monadnock Region. She teaches classes, gives community lectures, writes/produces a podcast about historic cemeteries - "The Secret Life of Death" - www.thesecretlifeofdeath.com. Free. Zoom. Information: For Zoom link: programming@rockinghamlibrary.org, 802-463-4270.
