  3. Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group

    October 14, 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    @
    Learning Center

    Caring for an individual with dementia requires different techniques than those needed to care for someone who is not cognitively impaired. Alzheimer’s Association support groups encourage attendees to share information, give and receive mutual support and exchange coping skills with one another. Support group attendees can offer practical suggestions based on their own experiences that may make caregiving easier. Sharing those ideas in a support group can prevent care partners from “reinventing the wheel.”

    Our new Caregivers Support Group at the Library is free to all who’d like to attend and will be facilitated by a trained Alzheimer’s Association volunteer. We’ll meet at 10:00am the 2nd Friday of each month in the Learning Center on the 2nd floor. No registration is required.

    For more information, contact Seth Zamek at 803-517-9489 or the Library at 615-595-1243.

    October 25, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    In January of 1975 Ray Blanton became the 44th governor of Tennessee and quickly became embroiled in major scandal. As Ray was served by his brother Gene Blanton, legal counsel Eddie Sisk, and many other corrupt aides, the governor’s office became a racketeering enterprise that defied any law enforcement agency to take it on.

    Except they did – FBI CODENAME TENNPAR: Tennessee's Ray Blanton Years takes you behind the scenes of the actual investigation as it unfolds. Written from firsthand experience, then FBI agent Hank Hillin is committed to pursuing the criminality and greed in Tennessee’s highest office. Before it was all over, careers and lives would be ruined and two men would be murdered.

    Hillin served one term as Sheriff of Davidson County, 1990 - 1994.

    First time attendees are encouraged to register to receive title specific information prior to the meeting.
