LOWLINC Speaker Series: Downsizing: Daunting Endeavor or New Beginning?
Wednesday, January 16, 1:30 to 3:00 p.m., Community Center.What do I do with all this stuff? Learn the answers with Kim Sawyer. She will offer practical tips to help you downsize your own belongings, assist loved ones with organization or relocation, and manage estate settlement. As the owner and operator of A Better Move, a senior move management company, Kim has a wealth of valuable insights that will make these tasks simpler. Clearing out the house doesn’t have to be a daunting endeavor—it can be your chance for a new beginning!
Kim presented the LOWLINC Speaker Series inaugural talk two years ago. We are very pleased to have her back. The Speaker Series is open to all Lake residents. Invite your neighbors and friends to attend.
Lunch at Basilico Italian Bakery and New York Deli. Tuesday, January 22. 11:30 a.m.
Basilico New York Deli at Harrison Crossing has been receiving rave reviews since it opened last spring. The menu features salads, grilled paninis, hero subs, Italian specialties and pizza. And everyone is raving about the great desserts that include Italian favorites like tiramisu and cannoli, and (drum roll, please!) homemade gelato! We’ll gather at the lower level Clubhouse parking lot at 11:30 and ride together. Basilico, 7011

National Museum of the Marine Corps. Quantico, Virginia. Monday, January 28. 8:45 a.m. to approximately 2:30 p.m.
A visit to the Marine Corps Museum was the top-rated day trip in LOWLINC’s recent survey of members’ interests. This fascinating and inspiring museum chronicles the long and distinguished history of the Corps, from its founding in 1775 to the present. We have engaged a former marine Sergeant Major, who is also a Marine Corps historian, to lead us on a tour. Our visit will begin with a 13- minute movie followed by an approximately 90-minute tour. The museum has two restaurants to choose for lunch: the Tun Tavern
restaurant featuring gourmet sandwiches and entrees (meals $10 to $15); and the Devil Dog Diner, a cafeteria-style eatery featuring sandwiches, soups and pizza ($5 to $8). There will be time to visit the museum store after lunch. Departure time from the museum will be 1:30 p.m.
The museum has nine wheeled chairs available for us to use, as well as light, folding “cane chairs” that can be carried and used for temporary seating along the way. There are benches throughout.
Members and volunteers will gather at the Clubhouse lower level parking lot by 8:45 a.m. sharp for the 45-minute trip to Quantico. Wear comfortable clothing and walking shoes. You will be required to pass through a security check. The tour size is limited to 30. If you prefer, you may take a self-guided tour. When you reserve with Stacey, let her know if you want to go on the docent-led tour. Hosted by Maureen Callahan and Mike Rugless
