Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, heart or abdomen. Caused primarily by the inhalation of asbestos fibers, it is most commonly diagnosed in older individuals that worked with asbestos in an industrial setting. Prognosis for mesothelioma is poor, but early detection and newer treatment methods have been given many patients hope for survival. To learn more, click on the link above.

Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C. but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.
The Pemberton Township Senior Center staff and volunteers are committed to providing quality, well-rounded, affordable programs and services in a clean, safe and welcoming environment. Each day we will lift spirits by sharing enthusiasm, compassion, support and kindness in a diverse setting.
