Experts all agree that multi-generational interaction between younger people and those of us who are “a-hem, more mature” is key for optimum health. Debi Nixon and Josh Clough will lead our Round Table on “MENTORING YOUNGER GENERATIONS DURING RETIREMENT” to help you discover how you can find people to mentor, and how you can also have them mentor you!

Debbie Dellinger will lead our candid, authentic discussion about finding purpose and enjoyment while moving into retirement – whatever that looks like for you.

This Round Table will help you manage any stress you may be feeling and identify options to make retirement a time of adventure and significance for you.

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.

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.
