The series will be held April 28, May 5, and May 19 from 10-11 a.m. at the Cape Elizabeth Community Services building on Ocean House Road. Light refreshments will be served. 

There is not a fee to participate, but interested seniors are asked to register by calling community services at 799-2457. Those who cannot attend but are interested in sharing their stories should contact Janice Reale at 233-4985.
