Upcoming Events

The Dexter Age Friendly Community Committee is starting a new project called “Tea Talks”! We will meet at the new “Gatherings 4 Main Street” Community Center at 4 Main Street in Dexter.

EACH MONTH beginning October 10th from 10:00 – 11:30, we will be providing the opportunity to get out of the house, interact with others and have a FREE cup of tea or coffee and possibly a light snack to ANYONE who wants to join us!

We will also have people offering information about various programs that might help you, your family or your friends with various tasks and/or needs!

We are also looking forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions about what program topics would interest you. Donations are accepted but not required.

During our first “Tea Talks” we will have George Dever presenting the “EDGE” assistance program and Denise Webb from the Dexter Public Health Association discussing options available to the community. A trivia contest {with a prize for the winner} will also be held while you enjoy your tea/coffee and snack!
