DAMARISCOTTA — Relationships with Others as We Age is the focus of the Inn Along the Way’s second summer Challenging Conversation Circle, scheduled for 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Chapman Farm, 741 Main St.

At the interactive discussion, facilitated by Laurie Worth, panelists can share the stories of how their relationships have changed as they and the people in their lives have grown older and transitioned through the pandemic, according to a news release from the planning committee.

Panelists include Tim Badgley, Deborah Carroll and Lisa Steele-Maley.

Bagley will discuss the benefits of having a “chosen family.” Carroll will focus on a parent setting up caretakers for adult children with special needs. Steele-Maley will share her experience of shifting familial relationships.

They will discuss how interactive puzzle pieces — looking for new ways for staying connected, resetting priorities, respecting the needs of family and friends, and being open to relationships with many kinds of people — have impacted the puzzle’s picture as each piece falls into place by focusing on the present, while at the same time planning for the future.

Current State of Maine CDC guidelines and protocols will be followed. For the safety of all, unvaccinated participants will be asked to wear a mask.

The theme for the inn’s third summer conversation circle, taking place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, will be Changing Relationships with Self.
