OWLS OF THE WORLD—WHO’S WATCHING YOU?
Friday, February 20 at 1 p.m. (School Vacation)
Owls of the World - Who's Watching You? Introduces you to the owls of New
England and beyond. Mark and Marcia share the field marks, signs and naturalist's
skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them. Next, you meet six
live owls (from small to huge) up close. Everyone participates in a hooting lesson and
learns tips on how to attract and protect owls near you.
Marcia and Mark Wilson founded Eyes On Owls in 1994 as an educational enterprise
that brings wild owls to schools or groups to teach us more about our wild neighbors
and their habitats. The owls they care for at Eyes On Owls are permanently disabled that is they can't survive on their own in the wild. Many of the owls are survivors of
collisions with vehicles.
Bring your your grandchildren and great grandchildren to learn about and experience
these fascinating birds. Please register at the reception desk of the Whipple Senior
Center. Adults $3, children $2 and children under 2 free. Cost includes refreshments
at the show. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

“In this life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small
things with great love”.
Mother Theresa
!
Hello!
My name is Chris Quinn and I am the new Coordinator of Volunteers at the
Whipple Center.
I choose to quote Mother Theresa in my first column in the Horizon because
her simple message reminds us of the importance of kindness and that each
of us can and do make a difference in the lives of others that we come into
contact with each day. At the Whipple Center, the gift of your time makes it
possible for us to provide the excellent services here for you to enjoy. We
have many volunteer opportunities; please stop in or call me at 781-682-3814
if you would like to learn more about how you can make a difference at your
Senior Center.
We are currently recruiting people who would like to pick up and deliver books to homebound elders. If
you are aware of an elder in town who might be interested in this service, please tell them they can call
me and I will happily set up this service for them.
A special THANK YOU to all of you who donated toiletries for our drive in January to benefit clients of
the Food Pantry. We were remiss in not mentioning last month a special thanks to Janet Smith who
sorted, checked, and re-checked the Christmas presents purchased for the Giving Tree and delivered to
the residents of Weymouth nursing homes.
Welcome to new volunteer Sheethal Surendran, information technology, library assistant.
!
Our condolences to the family of George Williams. George was a volunteer archery teacher at the
center for many years teaching both seniors and youths. George was a skilled archer and instructor. He
achieved 7 archery metals in the Senior Olympics. We are grateful for the generous donation of his time.
!
Happy Birthday wishes to our volunteers celebrating this month Mattie Clements, 4; Lynda Conti, 1; Mildred Costa, 15; Mary Kelly, 2;
Shirley May, 11; Anne McDonald, 24; Geraldine McGarry, 12; Francis Monahan, 3; Louis
Pelaggi, 11; Paul Ricca, 21; Juanita Turner, 22; George Walling, 7 and Christine Walsh 26
I have been told “Our Volunteers are the BEST!” I have seen this in the short time I have been here!
I look forward to meeting and working with you in the weeks and months to come.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
Sincerely,
Chris Quinn
The volunteer program is funded in part by a Community Development Block Grant.

FROM ANN IN THE OUTREACH OFFICE
As everyone is aware, the rates for electricity have increased this winter and Outreach is aware that
there are many seniors out there struggling to pay their bill. We want everyone to know that there are
some things you can do to lower your electricity costs. National Grid offers budget plans that may make
it more manageable to pay these increased bills.
One option that is available for those who have their electric and gas bills through National Grid is the
Balanced Billing Program. With the Balanced Billing Program, National Grid takes the projected
gas cost for a 12 month period and divides it equally into 12 monthly payments. If there is a significant
change in the agreed payments then bills will be adjusted, after meter reading is conducted. The
electricity budget plan is done the same way. National Grid determines your usage for the year and
divides your bill into twelve equal payments. In order to enroll in this program, you cannot have an
outstanding balance with National Grid.
Electric Savings Tips according to Mass Save:
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
Shut the lights off when you leave the room.
Unplug electronics such as laptops, tablets, cell phones, and cordless power tools once they’re
charged. Charging devices use energy even if you’re not actively charging the devices.
Switch to Energy Star certified compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) or light emitting diode
(LED) bulbs. CFLs use up to 75% less energy and LEDs use up to 90% less energy than
incandescent bulbs. Mass Save offers a discount on CFLs and LEDS via their online store.
Reduce your water heater’s temperature.
Clear around baseboard heaters.
Set refrigerator temperature to 38*.
Open Shades on winter days.
Contact Mass Save to see if you qualify for a rebate on any Energy Efficient appliances you have
purchased recently. They have numerous discounts for many different items including refrigerators,
freezers, washer, dryers, and dehumidifiers that have an Energy star rating. Mass Save can be reached at
(800)632-8300.
