GRIEF SUPPORT SOCIAL: LIVING THIS LIFE UPDATE

The Next Chapter, our grief support group, has received such a positive response that we have created an offshoot of this group, Living THIS Life, which will offer a variety of programs to suit our members' needs, including presentations, meditations, movies, game days, and other social events. PLEASE NOTE: We ask that only those who have suffered through the loss of a loved one attend these events. Limiting Living THIS Life events to people who share this personal bond will help create much-needed lifelong connections among the group's members. As a precautionary measure against the rising number of COVID-19 cases,  we will suspend Living This Life events until further notice. If you are interested in joining, we'd still like to hear from you! Contact the group's coordinator, Lauren Seiner, at 973-525-9672 for more information and to stay in touch.



RECORDED PRESENTATION: REVISIT 1980 

 
Award-winning journalist Evan Weiner takes 40 years down memory lane, to the year 1980, during a special presentation he describes as "semi-autobiographical." He discusses his interview with then-president Ronald Reagan, the start of his relationship with former U.S. Senator Al D'Amato, the New York Senate race, witnessing the return of former Iranian hostages at Stewart Air Force Base, the Ted Kennedy rally at the Ford assembly plant in Mahwah, the legendary U.S. olympic hockey team, and various other political, news, and pop culture topics of the era.
