North Olympic Library System to host discussion series on intentional aging

PORT ANGELES — The North Olympic Library System will host the monthly discussion group Intentional Aging beginning Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 11 a.m.

The meetings will be held on Zoom.

The program will explore the six dimensions of aging well outlined in the National Council on Aging’s “Aging Mastery Playbook.”

The introductory session “Getting to Know You” will provide an introduction to the program and an overview of the six dimensions that will provide monthly discussion topics.

The dimensions are gratitude and mindfulness; health and well-being; finances and future planning; connections and community; creativity and learning; and legacy and purpose.

Future discussions include “Mindfulness, Movement and Breath” on Oct. 19; book discussion “This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism” by Ashton Applewhite on Nov. 16; and “Telling Your Story” on Dec. 21.

A giant pumpkin contest is conducted each year at the Evergreen Country Estates neighborhood on Goss Road south of Port Angeles. Welden, who started the contest 14 years ago, gives each of his neighbors special pumpkin sprouts he has started from seeds from the Northwest Giant Pumpkin Growers Association. The growing season starts around May 1 and the neighbors gather for a weigh-in and to have a pumpkin potluck party this time of year. Only one pumpkin weighed more than 100 pounds out of the dozen entries. (Dave Logan/For Peninsula Daily News)
