    • o   March 8’s table talks will highlight free tech training (from Per Scholas) and information on mental health services and holistic approaches to healing, memory management, and adult foster care.
  • Marketplace: Attendees request and exchange goods (clothes, appliances, etc.) and services (childcare, laundry for the disabled, etc.).
