March 11: Longevity & Finding the Fountain of Youth Inside You
Rayna Eyster: Delve into key lifestyle habits we can incorporate into our lives to enhance the golden years. This talk will cover science-based information about the brain/gut relationship in relation to our health and well-being. You will be challenged and empowered to take charge of your life.
April 8: Leaving a Family Legacy: Your Obituary
Patti Stammer & Jack Durham: An important gift you can leave for your family is the gift of information for your obituary. Far from being morbid, it’s a chance to leave all the important details of your life in a place where your family can find them when the time comes. You can leave information, tell a story, leave a list of friends to notify, your final wishes, or anything you like to help your family honor your passing. Let’s talk about it, learn about ways to do it, and share some stories and hopefully a few laughs along the way.
May 13: Fraud Prevention for Seniors
Samantha Howard, Tri Counties Bank: Because there is no foolproof way to prevent fraud, awareness is the best defense. Fraud refers to crimes in which deceptive or false acts are committed for personal, typically financial, gain. Fraud can be devastating — victims are left to cope with the aftermath of compromised identities, damaged credit, financial loss, and a painful range of emotions. Topics include fraud awareness, education and prevention.
