We try to deal with topics of general interest and subjects suggested by participants in the group. Your ideas and comments are most welcomed.

Join us from April 8th to May 20th for a six week series on Aging with Grace and Gusto, largely based on member John Leslie’s two books on the subject. Here is the schedule for April:

April 1st - EASTER. No class.

April 8th - Life Expectancy/The future. John Leslie, the spark-plug for this series, will initiate the the six sessions, drawing on his extensive research on the subject to talk about living and dying facts, ageism and related topics.

April 15th - Instant Action Items will be lead by member Doug Manchee. Doug will discuss what you do when someone dies, including the steps to take in the first 24 hours following the passing of a loved one.

April 22nd - Your Going Away Book. Ann and Stan Harrison will help us think about handling documents such as titles, licenses, tax and other records. They will talk about passwords for accounts, the instructions and wishes of the deceased along with some thoughts on the obituary and family statements.

April 29th - Legal Documents From the Attorney’s Viewpoint with Don Drover and Randy Beck. At this session get answers to your questions about wills, power of attorney, issues around resuscitation, and related matters to all of the above.

LOOKING AHEAD:

DISCOVERY WOMEN

APRIL 10, 2018 The program for the Discovery Women in the month of April will prove to be something unique and different. The program will be “The Art of Collage with Kim Rootes.” Kim, a member of Northwoods, has a long art background, with a Minor in Art History from the University of Missouri. Kim began working with found objects 19 years ago. A myriad of these objects finds their way into her creations: piano keys, rusty grills, house siding, carpenter wood scraps, old corroded keys, rusted oil field pieces. Remember our Mission Project and bring cleaning products or cash donations which will go to N.A.M. to help Mothers of School Aged children as they transition out of the shelter environment into more independent housing for their families. In April, we will also begin sign-ups for our field trip in May to see the Painted Churches on the Precinct Bus. If you have any questions, please contact Barb Owen at 713 252-5655 or Sherry Schultz at 281 793-1810.
