The Essex Department of Social Services is pleased to present a discussion on the Social Service programs and services available to Essex residents. We all know Essex is a generous community whose citizens reach out to their neighbors in many diverse ways. But few of us realize how many different social service organizations there are in our area. There are regional, state and federal social service agencies, and other local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of Essex’s residents.

The presentation will highlight resources available in the town of Essex. Detailed descriptions of the primary service providers will be discussed, along with shorter descriptions of frequently used local and regional organizations. The talk will also cover programs and camp scholarships offered by Essex Park and Rec. Come find out what’s available for you and your family.

What mysteries lurk in the old graveyard? What messages are hidden in its ancient tombstones? Join us for a walking tour of River View Cemetery with members of the Essex Historical Society . The walk will begin at the Essex Library, and families with children older than four are welcome to leave them for the duration of the walk at the Library, where we’ll show the holiday favorite It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Spooky good fun for adults, and a not-so-spooky good time at the Library for the little ones. Registration is requested for this program, please.
