Sunday visitors can learn Medicare basics or gather osteoporosis-prevention tips at 10:30 a.m., and group walks foster gentle workouts on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. and on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Health-care professionals will be on hand to provide free blood-pressure and bone-density screenings and to answer conference-goers' questions about nutrition, stress management, and strategies to beat children at Candyland.
The night before the conference, those at the food tasting can nosh on nibbles that have been grown, prepared, or lovingly hoarded by local merchants. A casual gathering, this event encourages guests to savor each bite and marvel at the diverse harvest of the region's farmers. Visitors can also rub elbows or prehensile tails with exhibitors from the community, including Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Pure Café, and Cherry Valley Organics.
