“Creating Vital Aging Communities”
Guest Speaker:  Bob Ramsey
Tuesday, February 24th
10:00AM ~ Marion Hall

Bob Ramsey’s personal experiences and his belief in the power of community are what led him to write a book entitled “Creating Vital Aging Communities”.  Bob seeks to encourage senior citizens to re-define what it means to be old.  In his presentation, he offers specific examples and action steps for successful aging.  For example, Ramsey encourages seniors to set goals, volunteer, cultivate an active lifestyle, keep learning and stay connected.  Come hear about this and much more in this positive motivational presentation.
