The Council on Aging will be hosting a drum circle orientation for caregivers and persons with Alzheimer's and other memory impairing conditions. The program will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15, at the Senior Center, 40 Field St. Extension.

The Circle of Friends is an enrichment activity centered on entertainment and communication through rhythm, and is not disease or caregiving focused. All levels of ability are welcome.

The class will be led by Dan Cohen of Tamarack Hollow. Drums and other hand instruments will be provided.

Preregistration is required by calling 413-684-2000.

Funding to study this monthly program for one year has been provided by the Central Berkshire Fund and the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation.
