Trip planned to view John Singer Sargent's paintings

He’s known as the leading portrait painter of his generation.

He created 900 oil paintings and 2,000 water colors.

Your chance to see many of those works is coming up.

The city’s Council on Aging plans a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to see an exhibit of John Singer Sargent’s water color paintings.

The date and time of the trip will be announced, but the council is looking for local people interested in going.

0What: Trip to the Museum of Fine Arts to see the John Singer Sargent water color exhibit

How: Contact the Council on Aging at 978-374-2390. The council wants to determine how many people are interested

Here are events and activities for Haverhill senior citizens:

Stop the bullying of senior citizens: Ten percent to 20 percent of senior citizens have experienced some kind of senior-to- senior aggression, experts say.

Asst. Deputy Jason Ebacher from Sherriff Frank Cousin’s office will be at the Citizens Center on Nov. 13 for a presentation on senior bullying.

This presentation is open to the public, and reservations can be made by calling the Council on Aging at 978-374-2390.

Bowling for exercise and fun: Looking for a way to stretch out your legs, get a little exercise and have some fun?

Look no further than the newly renovated All Saints Bowling Center at 26 Broadway. The Council on Aging’s weekly bowling group meet at the center on Mondays at 11 a.m.

Although the center is often used by students from St. Joseph School of All Saints Parish, there is plenty of room for senior citizens to join in on the fun.

Important Medicare information on the way: Don’t ignore your Medicare mail.

If you have a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan or a Medicare Advantage Plan (HMO, PPO), you should be receiving information from your plan by the end of September. It is important to understand and save this information because it explains the changes in your plan for 2014.
