DAMARISCOTTA — Eldercare Network of Lincoln County will be hosting an Age Positive Symposium called What’s The Buzz About Reframing Aging on Friday, Sept. 14, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

The event is scheduled to run from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. There will be three panel presentations designed to link aging research, public policy and community initiatives.

The first panel will focus on transforming perspectives on aging and inventing the future through research. Panelists Michael Fossel, Rebecca MacAulay and Thomas Meuser will be talking about research that addresses and promotes the current and future needs of older adults.

The second panel, The Future’s so Bright, will focus on the intersection of aging research and public policy. This discussion about creating policies that enable people to live long and healthy lives will include Lenard Kaye, Laura Lee and Jessica Maurer.

The future of living, innovations in community, connecting people and ideas will be the theme of the final panel. Marilyn Gugliucci, Lori Parham and William Sadler will talk about how we think, feel and act towards age and aging in communities. The day will end with a participatory discussion between symposium moderators, panelists and attendees.

“The Greens 20th Anniversary Celebration” begins Thursday, Sept. 13, in the Dining Commons at Lincoln Academy in Newcastle. The festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a reception presented by Lincoln Academy’s culinary team and a musical interlude with Celtic harpist Barbara Wright and friends.
