Pathways to a Satisfying Retirement

Kaye Maggart

Seven Member Panel Discussion 

Date: Wednesday, November 15

Time: 2:00-4:00 pm

Sessions: One  Location: ZOOM

Course Fee: $5

How can retirement become an exciting new chapter in your life? First, you can enjoy the freedom of time you finally have for your own passions and interests. Second, you can engage with others in the community beyond yourself, helping those in need, and in the process, making many new friends.

The panel discussion will feature six retirees who have used their energies to participate in a variety of New Haven organizations. Panel participants include Allen Atherton, who will describe his monthly lunch group ROMEO (Retired Old Men Meeting Out); Linda Klein, an amateur cabaret singer, will talk about how music enriches your life and suggest area music groups of possible interest to ILR members; Andrew McLaren will describe his volunteer role on the Board of Fellowship Place, which fosters mental health through therapeutic support and rehabilitation services. He will also talk about his personal love of woodworking.; Sheila Rostow will talk about her love of bookbinding and longtime association with Creative Arts Workshop; Kerry Triffin, Board Chair of HomeHaven, will discuss his new Philosophical Questions special interest group on Zoom. In addition, a seventh speaker, Volunteer & Intern Coordinator Nicholas Siorentino. will talk about opportunities for retirees to help newly resettled refugees.
