Revaluation Information from the Assessor’s Office

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Dear Property Owner: The State of Connecticut requires that each municipality revalue real property periodically to ensure that assessments are equitable. The Town of Lyme has retained Vision Government Solutions, Inc. to conduct the revaluation of the town for 2018. Representatives from the Appraisal department of Vision Government Solutions, Inc. will be in your area shortly to conduct the first phase of the revaluation process. Each Vision data collector will have a Vision photo identification card. Residents are encouraged to ask to view this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes. When the Vision data collector visits your property they will verify the exterior measurementsof each building. If a person 18 years or older is available at the home to allow entry, the Vision data collector will request to inspect the interior including basement and easily accessible attic space. They will also take an exterior image of the property. At the conclusion of the inspection, the homeowner or resident will be asked to sign the data collection form only to verify that the interior inspection took place. If no one is available at the time of the visit to the property, follow up letters will be sent to owners with information on how to schedule an inspection appointment. If you have questions as to the identity of a data collector, call Troop F, Westbrook at (860) 399-2100 (non-emergency number) for further confirmation. Each data collector has personal and vehicle information registered with Troop F, Westbrook and the Assessor’s Office. If you have other questions please call the Assessor’s office at (860) 434-8092. Thank you for your cooperation. The Assessor’s Office

Post Cancer Exercise Group at Lymes’ Senior Center

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

FREE Post Cancer Exercise Class

A Surviving-N-Moving Class (Post Cancer Exercise Group) will begin September 19th and held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30pm.  It is open to all adults and will be held at the Lymes’ Senior Center -26 Town Woods Road Old Lyme, CT.  Instructor Donna Scott is trained and certified as a Certified Personal Trainer and Cancer Exercise Training Specialist (CES) with over 8 years of combined personal/group training experience. As a CES she has studied exercise implications and contraindications for 25 types of cancer, surgery, reconstruction and treatments, breast reconstruction and contraindications to exercise, about preventing and identifying lymphedema and cancer related pain, mental and physical fatigue during cancer treatment, and conducting postural assessments and working with medical professionals as needed

Following cancer surgery and treatment there are numerous physically debilitating side effects that cancer clients have become accustomed to living with.~ Based on her training, Donna Scott have developed, “Surviving-N-Moving”, so cancer survivors no longer have to accept the fact that they have to live with limited range of motion, poor posture, neck and back pain, lymphedema, chronic fatigue, and many other symptoms, following their surgery/treatment. Through this simple group exercise program combining cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, balance, flexibility and relaxation techniques,many of the agonizing problems survivors experience can be made more tolerable.  Besides the physical aspects that cancer survivors gain from exercise, getting together in a group setting creates a community, sharing common struggles where each member becomes accountable to one another and friendships develop.

This 11 week – twice a week program which is FREE (normally $110.00) thanks to the generous donations from the Friends of the Lymes’ Senior Center, the Old Lyme Visiting Nurses Association and the Lymes’ Senior Center Board.

This class contains the following elements:

Short “centering” meditation

Low impact movement

Resistance/Strength training with light weights or bands

Flexibility and Balance


Cool down/ Relaxation

All participants must receive medical clearance from their Doctor before beginning the program and complete a Health History Questionnaire, and a Quality of Life Questionnaire. This program is open to all adults who have been treated for cancer and are in post recovery phase.  The class minimum is 8 and the class maximum is 15 so the instructor can personalize her attention to each and every student. For more information or to sign up please call Donna Scott at 860-961-4507.
