Rook of Quincy did order scarves during the community yard sale offered as part of the Quincy Ox Roast. A few antiques, including a comb case, caught her eye. “It think it's a good time. There are a lot of people and different things,” said Rook, who has shopped at the yard sale for several years.

While Lisa Price's roast beef dinner still was piping hot, she headed to the condiment table and seasoned it to perfection. Her $5.75 hot beef dinner was topped with gravy and french fries.

Quincy Village used a hot air balloon Monday morning to symbolically launch a new initiative designed to help residents with what is being called successful aging. The “masterpiece living” program focuses on physical, spiritual, intellectual and social needs. “It enhances life. It makes you appreciate stuff that much more,” said Russell Schwartz, who moved into Quincy Village's independent living area three and a half years ago. He and his wife, Judy, trained in the masterpiece living program last fall to help introduce it to other residents in the retirement community.
