MARION — In addition to regular programming, the Marion Council on Aging will have a few special events throughout the month of May.

On May 13, the Council on Aging will host a tea party with seatings at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

The event will include tea, finger sandwiches, treats, and a musical performance by Chris Carter.

Registration for the free event is required by May 7. The Council on Aging also encourages a $5 donation to attend, though it is not mandatory.

On May 21 at 10:30 a.m., the COA will host “Coffee with the Chief,” a coffee hour with Marion Police Chief Richard Nighelli.

Residents will be able to bring questions and concerns to the chief over coffee and pastries.

On May 25 at 1 p.m., Karen Antonowicz will host “Style for the Golden Years,” a presentation on fashion, style and beauty.

Antonowicz has a degree in Textiles and Fashion Merchandising, and will help residents keep their style as they age.

On May 27 at 1 p.m., the COA will host an elder law education workshop, where residents will learn from Attorney Ashley Evirs about legal issues that arise as people age.

The first 15 residents to register for the workshop will receive a copy of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s “Taking Control of Your Future: A Legal Checkup.”

Registration for these events will be required. To register for any Council on Aging events, call 508-748-3570.
