AUGUST BOOK CLUB - A Gentleman in Moscow
by: Amor Towles
Dull Men's Club
Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Leader: Bernie Gillon
The Northborough chapter of the Dull Men’s Club is looking for a few more dull men who celebrate the ordinary. It is a place where dull men share thoughts and experiences, free from glitz and glam, free from pressures to be in and trendy. We are free instead to enjoy simple, ordinary things. It is an opportunity to hang-out and to chat about issues of great or little importance. If you have a good or bad joke to share bring it. Serious politics or religion are strictly verboten subjects. We are not boring and we are not grumpy. Our favorite flavor is vanilla and our favorite color is gray. We talk about any topic that is of interest to the group from computers to Bee Honey. Check out our international Dull Men’s Club Website www.dullmensclub.com and come join us.

When we lose a loved one caused by illness, an accidental traumatic event or even natural causes, we can expect that we are going to go through some kind of a grief process. The one whom we have loved so dearly is no longer with us, so we need to mourn that loss if we are ever going to move forward with our lives. Our grief and mourning has no time line or limit. It never moves forward logically or step-by-step, and we may feel its grip over and over again.
Everyone experiences grief when a loss occurs. There is no way around
it or over it or under it. We must work through it so healing can take
place. This is hard work. A support group is one of the ways to help one
move through the grief process.
Beginning, Thursday July 11th and for five weeks thereafter, ending
August 15th, Faith and Family Hospice of Marlborough, Ma. will be offering
a bereavement support group at the Northborough Senior Center
on Bearfoot Road. We will meet each Thursday from 12:45-2:15 p.m. Rev.
Sharron Lamothe, one of the chaplains with Faith and Family Hospice,
will be the facilitator along with assistance from colleagues from Faith
No matter how dark and frightening the winters of struggle have been
after the death of a loved one, we can be assured that spring will always
come birthing new life. It is our hope that if you are experiencing
the loss of a loved one, you will consider attending the bereavement
support group being offered in July. Then maybe you can begin to feel
a sense of peace, solace and healing in such a difficult time in your life.
