Gray Power
Talks on Aging and Aging Well
Last year’s luncheon workshops for seniors were such a huge success that we simply had to continue the series. Once again, experts in their field will lead the discussion.
November 6: Celestial Conversations with Loanne Mayer. Loanne is the author of Celestial Conversations: Healing Relationships after Death. Speaking from personal experience, she discusses the process of forgiving after a loved one has passed.
November 20: Get Your Face on Facebook with Lara Rouillard. An expert on all things related to social media, Lara gives an entertaining and interactive introduction to getting started on Facebook. Don’t miss this great opportunity to impress the grandkids!
