Senior edition

By Holly Steele - For The Register-Herald

Northern Connection: Professional Organizer, Lori Firsdon will be speaking on the accumulation of stuff. Loris says, ‘It’s time to think differently about the stuff you’ve been collecting and accumulating over the years. You’ll think twice about what items you bring into your home and what is truly important to your life. You’ll leave class motivated and armed with new ways to deal with clutter.’ She is speaking at this month’s ‘Lunch and Learn.’ We will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 11:30 a.m. at St. Paul UMC in New Paris.
