Bowl your way to exercise -- and fun

(Continued)

Halloween dance planned: Get your dancing shoes ready and save the date.

The Council on Aging is planning a Halloween Dance for Oct. 31 at 12:30 p.m. Costumes will be optional, and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.

A Goodtime D.J. George Whitehouse will provide music, and as a special treat Whitehouse will bring his wicked fun Coney Island Photo booth. More details will be announced.

Preventing home damage during emergencies: Let’s say a smoke alarm goes off in your home and you’re not there.

Firefighters rush to the scene and have no choice but to force open the door or break a window. But there is a way to allow emergency workers access to your home without them damaging the property. You can make entry to your home convenient for fire and ambulance services by having a lock box attached to the outside of the house or apartment.

For additional information, contact Fire Department Deputy Chief William LaLiberty at 978-373-8460 or Joel Berg at 978-374-2390, ext. 38.

Bingo games: There are chances to play bingo twice a week at the Citizens Center, 10 Welcome St.

Super bingo is played every Monday at 1 p.m. Regular bingo games are Thursdays at 1 p.m. Players must be 60 or older, or disabled.

Players are welcome to drop in for 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.

During the annual Medicare open enrollment period (now through Dec. 7), you will have a chance to change your plan for next year. SHINE counselors can help you understand your plan changes, as well as other options you may have. For an appointment, contact the Council on Aging at 978-374-2390, ext. 19.
