Fun Luncheon -- A Day in the life of a Boat Bum

Wednesday, March 27, starting at noon at the Groton Senior Center

Spend an afternoon with Richard Meibers as he talks about his new novel, Falling Off The Wind, about sailing in the Caribbean. The book explores the world of a relatively unknown subculture, that of the "Boat Bums," those who have left the larger society to live on sailboats in places like the Caribbean and the South Pacific. To start this fun loving vibe off right, lunch will be delivery from Mc Donald's. To sign-up and learn more about the lunch selections call the senior center at 978-448-1170.
