Your Tuesday Village Update #11
June 9, 2020         

Dear Villagers,

Last week the Village was treated to Bill Gette's nature presentation highlighting our local woodland walks and the wildflowers, birds, and forest animals residing there. You can see the video at this link.
We hope that this Tuesday Update, the online events we schedule, and the links we send, help take the edge off these trying times. Remember that if you start to feel overstressed and alone at any time, call 978 206-1821 to let us know you'd like a chat - we are here for you! 

More help: Assistance is available for qualified Newburyport residents who provide proof they are struggling to pay rent due to loss of income related to covid-19. Learn about this program, eligibility requirements, and access an application at
