Down Home series continues with ‘Songs in the Key of Life’


BETHEL — The Western Mountains Senior College will present the next in its Down Home Maine series on Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Mill Hill Inn. Leslie Anne Chat?eld will speak on the topic of “Songs in the Key of Life.”

Chatfield is currently completing her doctoral dissertation focusing on the ways that the songs we remember over the course of our lives offer tools for meaningful reflection. In her characteristically spirited and insightful manner, she will guide her audience to explore what they can learn from these songs. She grounds her material and presentation in her extensive local and national consulting work with a variety of populations, such as elders in spiritual communities, tribal elders and groups who are engaged in the process of telling the stories of their lives. Leslie, a resident of Bethel, has worked extensively in Maine as a clinical counselor and in the United Church of Christ as a professionally trained Intentional Interim pastor. 

The Down Home Maine series features unique and adventurous people from the community. Programs are open to the public free of charge; donations are accepted to offset Senior College expenses. WMSC offers multi-session courses, workshops, outdoor activities, special events and social gatherings to members aged 50 and over. Google Western Mountains Senior College to reach the website.
