We are already thinking about and looking forward to September and the annual Appleton Harvest of the Arts. We'll be looking for participants and for volunteers for the activities of that day, when we all have a chance to enjoy the artistic skills of those around us. If you have musical or other artistic or literary skills you would like to share with your Appleton neighbors, or if you would like to help set up for the event and/or provide refreshment goodies, we would like to hear from you so preparation of the program can begin. Jan Janville has graciously consented to be our initial contact person, so, if you would like to participate or volunteer to help, please contact her.
Welcome home to Captain Stephen Spearin! He has spent the past year serving in Afghanistan. Thank you for serving our country! I am sure his family is happy to have him safely back home!

Medicare information session planned for July 24, 7:15 p.m. at Appleton Library. Have you or someone you know tried to wade through the Medicare insurance system and found it confusing? Do you just wish there was someone who could help you make sense of all the information you see and hear about Medicare? Then this just might be the session for you!

This is where you can find the answers to basic questions about Medicare such as: What is Medicare; When and where to sign up for Medicare; What services are covered by Medicare; What is the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit; What is the cost for Medicare; What is Medicare Supplemental Insurance; When can I make changes to my Medicare coverage; And more…..Being prepared could save you a lot of worry (and money).
