The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning offers a free support group for anyone facing life’s challenges such as bereavement, issues related to health or family relationships or other concerns. “When Life is Hard” convenes from 10 a.m. to noon on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the First Presbyterian Church on Front Street. Rev. David Mair, a retired Presbyterian minister and NCLL member, will be the facilitator. To register, contact Mair at 228-9470 or simply attend one of the meetings.
