GROTON -- The Groton Council on Aging and Groton-Dunstable High School invite you to join us for a one-of-a-kind screening of the documentary "Lives Well Lived" on Friday, Oct. 12 at 8:30 a.m. at the Blackbox Theater at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School.

It will be a shared experience with senior citizens, GDRHS students and their teachers with the filmmaker Skyping in following the screening.

"Lives Well Lived" celebrates the incredible wit, wisdom and experiences of adults ages 75 to 100 years old.

Through their intimate memories and inspiring personal histories encompassing over 3,000 years of experience, 40 people share their secrets and insights to living a meaningful life.

Although they may have seen the worse in humanity, their outlook is still optimistic.

Their stories are about perseverance, the human spirit, and staying positive in the midst of great challenges.

These men and women open the vault on their journey into old age through family histories, personal triumph and tragedies, loves and losses -- seeing the best and worst of humanity along the way.

Their stories will make you laugh, perhaps cry, but mostly inspire you. After the screening the filmmaker will Skype in for a conversation about aging and lives well lived.

This free program is generously supported by the Friends of the Groton Elders and is open to the public. Please call the COA to reserve your seat, 978-448-1170.
