Travel back to the 50s and 60s with a classic dance party starring Fall River native CHARLIE QUINTAL & TALK OF THE TOWN.
A longtime staple at the Warwick Musical Theater, dance halls, and venues throughout the Northeast, Charlie has entertained music fans for six decades with classic rock'n'roll (“Shake, Rattle and Roll,” “Tequila”), doo wop harmonies (“Take Me As I Am,” “Lovely Lies”) and mainstream pop (“Georgia On My Mind,” “Baby”) and has reunited his high-energy act for this special charity event, the Bristol Elder Services Emergency Assistance Fundraiser. The afternoon of great music is hosted and produced by Todd Baptista.
Through the Emergency Assistance Fund, Bristol assists elders who have a one-time financial crisis that threatens their ability to live independently. The concert is the sole means of funding this program. The event is supported by many community partners, including our Silver Sponsor, BankFive, and our Bronze Sponsor, Senior Whole Health.
Join us on Sunday, March 16th at 3:00 p.m. at Narrows Center for the Arts, 16 Anawan Street, Fall River.

During the winter months, ice, snow, and cold temperatures can make life challenging. Here are some helpful tips about common winter dangers:
Ice and snow: Wear shoes with good traction and non-skid soles. Replace a worn cane tip to make walking easier. Take off your shoes as soon as you return indoors because often snow and ice attach to the soles and, once melted, can be slippery.
Dress for warmth: Don’t let the indoor temperature go too low, and dress in layers. When you go outside wear warm socks, a heavy coat, a warm hat, gloves, and a scarf. In very cold temperatures, cover all of your exposed skin. Use a scarf to cover your mouth and protect your lungs.
Fight winter depression: Many seniors have less contact with others during the cold months. Arrange a check-in system with neighbors and friends. Even a short, daily phone call can make a big difference.
Check the car: Get your car serviced before winter hits. Checking things like the oil, tires, battery, and wipers will help you be prepared for winter roads.
Prepare for power outages: Make sure you have easy access to flashlights and a battery-powered radio in case the power goes out. Stockpile warm blankets. Keep a supply of non-perishable foods that can be eatenat room temperature. If the power goes out, wear several layers of clothing, including a hat.
Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning: Ensure your safety by checking the batteries on your carbon monoxide detector and buying an updated one if you need to.
The most important tip to keep in mind during the colder months is to ask for help. If you need to clear your property of snow and ice, don’t hesitate to ask a family member or neighbor, or hire a professional. Winter may pose challenges, but with planning and awareness, you can stay safe.
