SeniorCare Inc.’s recently established program “Seniors Out & About – An LGBT Social Gathering” organizes events for older LGBT people (60 years of age and older), their friends and family. Our next event will be a Lecture and Tour of Gloucester’s Beauport, Sleeper McCann House on Thursday, September 29, 2016. The private museum tour will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Beauport, located at 75 Eastern Point Blvd in Gloucester. Following the Tour, there will be a lecture at 7:30 p.m. at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center at 6 Rocky Neck Avenue in Gloucester. Join us for an interesting look into the history of one of Gloucester’s most unique treasures, the Beauport Museum, which was known as a “Bachelor’s House” in the early twentieth century, a coded reference to a homosexual household or homeowner.
Tickets for the tour and lecture are $15 per person. Advance registration is required. For information, contact Kelly Knox at 978-281-1750 or Kelly.firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on SeniorCare’s programs for seniors throughout the North Shore, go to www.SeniorCareInc.org.
