Ted Reinstein

The Town of Acton invites local seniors to free informational virtual programs planned for March.

The Town of Acton invites local seniors to free informational virtual programs planned for March.

“While these programs are aimed at seniors, you don’t need to be a senior to sign up,” Acton Health Director Sheryl Ball said. “These programs are beneficial to everyone. We hope people share information about these events with friends and family.”

"Senior Scams"

On Tuesday, March 16 at 11 AM, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan will present a timely and important program about scams that target the senior community.

District Attorney Ryan will discuss the far-reaching impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including an increasing number of scams targeting the elderly and other vulnerable populations. The program also will focus on the lasting impact of isolation and will offer advice about how to reduce feelings of loneliness.

"The New Normal New England Road Trip"

Join “Chronicle” reporter Ted Reinstein on Tuesday, March 30 at 7 PM as he leads a tour of beloved diners, familiar landmarks, and places off the beaten path, and shares stories about the quirky characters he has met in his New England reporting career.

Reinstein has been a reporter for WCVB-TV’s award-winning — and America’s longest-running, locally-produced — nightly news magazine since 1997, and has written three books.

The virtual events are funded by a collaborative grant initiative serving the senior population in Acton, Boxborough, and Littleton. Funding comes from CHNA 15, a non-profit health organization funded by Lahey Hospital Medical Center and Winchester Hospital through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
