Reflect… Awaken… Live!

That is the title of a newly published book by a former New Hartford Central School colleague and former member of the New Hartford Presbyterian Church, Mimi Pacifico. I met Mimi my first week working at New Hartford when she pulled out a Utica Daily Press during a lunch period my first week of school and helped me search for an affordable apartment.Mimi was a fellow social studies teacher, and after my marriage, she and her husband Angelo became bridge partners to Cindy and me. She and Ang moved to Florida in the mid-1980s and she remained active in church affairs, becoming a Christian Education Director at her church. She later took on the job of writing a weekly column for the Daytona Beach News-Journal about senior adults.

Last year, Mimi wrote and published Reflect… Awaken… Live! It is a book about elderhood and issues about aging.
It is written specifically to be a book to be read in a group. It seems very appropriate for churches that have active adult reading groups. You can contact Mimi at pacifico.mimi@yahoo.com.

The photograph of Cindy and Mimi was taken at the New Hartford McDonald’s where we met for conversation and coffee on the afternoon of June 14.
