My Story 

Presenter: Fred Cooley

My Story is an opportunity for us to get to know someone on a deeper level than we would in everyday conversation. Fred Cooley will bring his signature perceptive approach to our topics, and as he celebrates his 80th birthday, he will bring “a special emphasis to some things I’d like the audience to consider.” Fred also has a fun challenge for the group as an outgrowth of what he wants us to help him with. Be ready for an interesting an enlightening morning!

Passages - Ready or Not - A Program for Older Adults

1st Tuesday of the month starting in October

12:30 Lunch in the Oak Room   1:15 PM Program in Case Library

Throughout our lives we experience periods of stability and times of transition.   So it comes as no surprise the last stage of our life is also marked by various passages.   Many older adults face a change of lifestyle and a redefinition in the light of changed circumstances. On the first Tuesday of each month there's a gathering for adults who have reached this time of their life.   These programs focus on the topics that deal with the physical, spiritual and mental interests of older adults. The monthly programs will be announced in the Sunday bulletins, future newsletters and our monthly  postcard reminders.   For more information about this group or if you would like to be included in our postcard reminder list, please contact Debbie Katz at 884-9437, ext. 329
