A Good Man with a Dog

$10

with Roger Guay

Calendar Oct 19, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week
Come join the authors of the book “A Good Man with a Dog: A Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods” by Roger Guay and Kate Clark Flora. Guay is a game warden and certified K9 handler, with a successful career that would span twenty-five years and see him establish canine units as a staple of the game warden service. Guay takes readers into the watchful world of a warden, catching poachers and protecting pristine wilderness, and the sometimes CSI-like reconstruction of deer and moose poaching scenes. His frequent companion is a little brown lab named Reba, who can find discarded weapons, ejected shells, hidden fish, and missing people. Kate Clark Flora will talk about the fascinating world of true crime that led her into doing research for the Joe Burgess police fiction series she continues to write. A Good Man with a Dog explores Guay’s life as he and his canine partners are exposed to increasingly terrible events, from tracking down hostile poachers to searching for victims of violent crimes. Books will be available to purchase.

Have you turned down a chance to go out with family or friends because you were concerned about falling? Have you cut down on a favorite activity because you might fall? People who experience a fear of falling often limit their physical activities, which can result in loss of strength, reduced muscle tone and balance problems, making the risk of falling greater. In this class you will set realistic goals for staying active, learn how to stay safe at home, complete exercises to increase strength and balance, and learn how to identify and control your fear of falling.
