Exploring aging with Disney

The Seeing Eye

AGING WELL PROGRAM: Jewish Family Services and Jewish Community Center of Youngstown will offer “Disney Characters for Internal Process,” an aging-well lunch-and-learn program from noon to 1 p.m. Aug. 14 at the center, 505 Gypsy Lane.

Some people relate to Winnie-the-Pooh’s obsession with honey. Others relate to the funny and co-dependent relationship between Timon and Pumbaa. In this workshop, participants will utilize familiar characters and expressive art therapy to represent and examine their personalities, choices, relationships and internal struggles.

This program is free and open to all older adults. Visit jccyoungstown.org to register by Aug. 12.

HISTORICAL DISPLAY: The featured exhibit at the Salem Historical Society Museum through October is a celebration of the Suffrage Centennial and passage of the 19th Amendment.

This exhibit covers activities and people associated with the battle to gain the right to vote for women in the United States achieved in 1920, 100 years ago. Artifacts highlight Ohio women who contributed to the cause and historical events held in the Buckeye State, especially Salem. Women’s clothing from 1850 to 1920 is also featured.

The museum is open 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays or by appointment. Admission is $6 adults and $3 youth ages 5 to 17. Members and children younger than 5 are admitted free. The bookstore and gift shop at 239 S. Lundy Ave. will be open during exhibit hours. Patrons must wear masks. Cotton gloves will be provided and must be worn.
