  • 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm QPR - Question, Persuade, Refer
    6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

    QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

    The QPR Institutecreated this model and the Town of Lexington Human Services Department will be providing hour-long QPR community Gatekeeper trainings to those who might be interested.

    Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans are saying ‘Yes’ to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

    What is a Gatekeeper?

    According to theSurgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include: parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at-risk of suicide.

    As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

    – Recognize the warning signs of suicide

    – Know how to offer hope

    – Know how to get help and save a life

    Upcoming Virtual QPR Community Trainings:

    Monday (05/09/22) from 6:00PM – 7:15PM

    Wednesday (05/11/22) from1:00PM – 2:15PM

  • 1:00 pm – 2:15 pm QPR - Question, Persuade, Refer
    1:00 pm – 2:15 pm

    QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

    The QPR Institutecreated this model and the Town of Lexington Human Services Department will be providing hour-long QPR community Gatekeeper trainings to those who might be interested.

    Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans are saying ‘Yes’ to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

    What is a Gatekeeper?

    According to theSurgeon General’s National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include: parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at-risk of suicide.

    As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

    – Recognize the warning signs of suicide

    – Know how to offer hope

    – Know how to get help and save a life

    Upcoming Virtual QPR Community Trainings:

    Monday (05/09/22) from 6:00PM – 7:15PM

    You TOO Can Make a Fairy House

    E. Ashley Rooney

    You may have heard talk about the Fairy Homes and Gardens event, which has just been enthusiastically endorsed by the Lexington Tourism Committee and the Chamber of Commerce. It is a free family-friendly cross-town celebration and an invitation to come enjoy Lexington the weekend of May 27-29 and admire magical fairy homes.

    Many organizations including the Chamber of Commerce, Munroe Center for the Arts, Cary Library, Recreation and Community Programs, CAAL, Cotting School, local preschools, Girl Scouts, and our own Christine Kochanski, Kitty Galaitsis, and Leslie Masson have joined in and are making their fairy houses. You can too. And they are great fun to do with a friend or a grandchild.

    The first step in building a fairy house is to collect natural materials from the outdoors. Take a walk in your neighborhood or around your yard. Soon you’ll discover interesting twigs and rocks and acorn caps. Bring a bag and fill it up. All these interesting stones, pinecones, twisted twigs, lichen, and grasses offer fun opportunities. You may have a collection of shells gathering dust. Don’t forget to check out your jewelry box or dresser drawers for other interesting bits such as that one earring, the broken bead necklace, or the European coins that are no longer any good. And of course, there are those holiday ornaments.

    Now you need to build your structure using twine and a glue gun unless you are planning to use a conch shell or a dried out squash.

    Once the overall structure is built and secure, it’s time to decorate with all your findings. Fairies are attracted to shiny objects so decorate the inside with sparkly stickers or foil for a shimmering glow. Some extra birch bark can make a tiny chair, table, and steps for the entrance. Or you can use that collection of shells. What you can make from natural materials is almost as limitless as your imagination, especially if you make it in miniature.

    To be sure it is rain-proof, you can weatherproof your creation by spraying it with a clear coat of polyurethane from a craft or hardware store. Wrap your fairy house with battery powered fairy lights for nighttime enchantment.

    For more information, download our How to Build a Fairy House, visit Cary Library’s books on fairy houses, or Munroe Center for the Arts.

  • Fairy Homes and Gardens Event

    You TOO Can Make a Fairy House

    E. Ashley Rooney

    You may have heard talk about the Fairy Homes and Gardens event, which has just been enthusiastically endorsed by the Lexington Tourism Committee and the Chamber of Commerce. It is a free family-friendly cross-town celebration and an invitation to come enjoy Lexington the weekend of May 27-29 and admire magical fairy homes.

    Many organizations including the Chamber of Commerce, Munroe Center for the Arts, Cary Library, Recreation and Community Programs, CAAL, Cotting School, local preschools, Girl Scouts, and our own Christine Kochanski, Kitty Galaitsis, and Leslie Masson have joined in and are making their fairy houses. You can too. And they are great fun to do with a friend or a grandchild.

    The first step in building a fairy house is to collect natural materials from the outdoors. Take a walk in your neighborhood or around your yard. Soon you’ll discover interesting twigs and rocks and acorn caps. Bring a bag and fill it up. All these interesting stones, pinecones, twisted twigs, lichen, and grasses offer fun opportunities. You may have a collection of shells gathering dust. Don’t forget to check out your jewelry box or dresser drawers for other interesting bits such as that one earring, the broken bead necklace, or the European coins that are no longer any good. And of course, there are those holiday ornaments.

    Now you need to build your structure using twine and a glue gun unless you are planning to use a conch shell or a dried out squash.

    Once the overall structure is built and secure, it’s time to decorate with all your findings. Fairies are attracted to shiny objects so decorate the inside with sparkly stickers or foil for a shimmering glow. Some extra birch bark can make a tiny chair, table, and steps for the entrance. Or you can use that collection of shells. What you can make from natural materials is almost as limitless as your imagination, especially if you make it in miniature.

    To be sure it is rain-proof, you can weatherproof your creation by spraying it with a clear coat of polyurethane from a craft or hardware store. Wrap your fairy house with battery powered fairy lights for nighttime enchantment.

    For more information, download our How to Build a Fairy House, visit Cary Library’s books on fairy houses, or Munroe Center for the Arts.

    10:00 am – 12:00 pm

    Location: Wright Farm (back field)

    Wild pollinators have declined in abundance, diversity, and geographic distribution at an alarming rate over recent years. These declines pose a significant threat to ecosystem health and biodiversity, yet we currently lack critical ecological information needed to develop effective conservation and restoration strategies for threatened species. The‘Beecology Project’aims to fill this gap by recruiting citizen scientists from across the region to digitally collect and submit ecological data on native pollinator species using our freely available smartphone and web apps. As a Beecologist, you will contribute valuable information on the diversity and health of pollination systems in your local area and importantly, help to keep our native ecosystems buzzing for years to come!

    Dr. Robert J. Gegear is a Professor in the Department of Biology at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
