Each of us is unique, right? On Tuesday eve, Feb 2nd, Carol Cartmill will lead a Round Table designed to help every one of us “BE A DIFFERENCE MAKER!”
That’s right! She will help each of the participants identify the skills, talents, resources, interests, desires, and experiences that make you unique. And then she’ll help you determine how you can use your unique talents and passions to make a positive difference in your community.
For some of us, our community is our family. For others, it is our immediate neighborhood or city. Maybe for you, community includes the whole wide world! Either way, join us for this Round Table to make a wonderful difference in life!

Retirement often begins with the fun new sensation of being able to use your time however you want. But, if you are like many of us, you will eventually find yourself wanting more. More adventure. More meaning. More significance in life.
On Tuesday evening April 6th, Dr. Mindi McKenna will lead our Round Table on “SETTING BIG DREAMS AND ACHIEVING THEM IN RETIREMENT.”
She’ll guide us through a 7-step framework developed by popular speaker, Bob Goff, author of “Love Does,” “Everybody Always,” and “Dream Big.”
She’ll share tips for identifying our big dreams, acting on them, clearing distractions, overcoming obstacles, and yes, achieving results.

Some of us have plenty of financial resources during retirement; others are on a really tight budget. Either way, all of us can leave a lasting legacy by investing of ourselves to help others.

That’s why we’ll end our 2020-2021 Crossroads Round Table series with a powerful discussion about “LEAVING A LASTING LEGACY BY ESTATE PLANNING” led by Debi Nixon and the Resurrection Foundation.
