Life After 60: How to Make the Best of the Rest (And the Rest Can Become the Best!)

Join us on April 14-15, 2018 at the Bishop Rader Retreat Center at Pine Lake Camp in Westfield for a memorable, life-changing, experience. It’s a chance to get away, find friends, have “ah-ha” moments, and get excited about the rest of your life!

See options you didn't know were possible! It will be one of the best investments you make in yourself!

  • You’ll get started in making the first, sometimes unnerving decision, to write the next chapter of YOUR life.
  • You’ll gain information about developing ways to fund YOUR plans.
  • You’ll have a better understanding of the changes and transitions that will happen in YOUR life.
  • You’ll leave with YOUR action plan and the support to make it happen.
  • You’ll be challenged in YOUR thinking, surprised by what you learn and you'll have fun along the way.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Winter Luncheon on Thursday, January 25 at Blackhawk Country Club! 

And, a special thank you to Mary Ann Drescher, President of Attic Angel Association. Mary Ann shared information on housing options available for the 
aging in our community and throughout the country and the LeadingAge vision for our nation's aging population. 

SAIL members and their guests enjoyed a delicious lunch, social time, a beautiful view, and great information on very relevant and important topics.
