    Come and say hi!

    The DMS has a table at the Fair and would love for you to stop by and say hello. Who knows who else you may meet, too?

    (It's where we met the Dulcimer group that provided the lobby entertainment before a Dunedin Concert Band performance in 2018.)

    This event features local businesses and organizations that provide senior citizens with knowledge and advice on a variety of topics. Popular interests include healthcare, wellness, legal assistance, home & financial security, retirement living, insurance, nutrition and much more!

    If you’ve never experienced this event, now is the time to do it! Last year’s Senior Awareness Fair brought in over 500 participants and over 60 local businesses and organizations.

    Perhaps you would like to help Connie represent DMS for the morning. All you need is a DMS polo shirt and a big smile - the rest we will provide. Send us an email to let us know if you are willing.

    Lord of the Rings

    Johan de Meij’s first symphony “The Lord of the Rings” is based on the trilogy of that name by J.R.R. Tolkien. This book has fascinated many millions of readers since its publication in 1955. The symphony consists of five separate movements, each illustrating a personage or an important episode from the book (note: this is original music unrelated to Peter Jackson's movies with New Line Cinema and music by Howard Shore).


    The five movements included represent characters in the book:

    • Gandalf
    • Lothlorien
    • Gollum
    • Journey in the Dark (The Mines of Moria and the Bridge of Khazad-Dûm)
    • Hobbits

    Free admission.
