Westfield Rotarian and Psychologist, Peggy Rothbaum Ph.D. will teach ways to protect yourself by learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.

The organization recently received new funding and acquired the Reeve House where they intend to create a History and Cultural Center. Society President, Nancy Priest, will discuss the organization’s plans for the future and the long-term benefits to local citizens of their efforts towards historical preservation.
