Tales from New England’s Attic
New Milford Senior Center
What lurks in the shadows of New England’s attic and even our very own town of New Milford? Join history buff, Greg Van Antwerp for a special “Never Stop Learning” presentation and discover some of the area’s hidden history in the spirit of Halloween! Eerie yet interesting so no need to be scared!
Witches in Connecticut
Woodbury Senior Center
The harrowing story of the hanging of witches in Colonial New England continues to haunt our present-day imagination. The trials and executions of witches in CT predated the more famous Salem witch panic by over 40 years. Hear the stories of some of the women and men accused, tried and executed as witches and learn how CT successfully controlled the spread of witch accusations long before Salem erupted in panic and violence.

Elmwood Hall Danbury Senior Center
All Danbury area seniors age 60 or older are welcome at this yearly event. This event includes a lovely Thanksgiving-style lunch, dancing to DJ Kevin Burland, and fabulous raffle prizes. Delightfully hosted by Mayor Mark Boughton!
