Starting April 9, Southwestern Community College is offering a hands-on workshop to help retirees develop a roadmap for the new chapter in their lives.
Entitled “Shifting Gears To Your Life & Work After Retirement,” the seminar will provide tips for re-inventing post-retirement life and creating a new experience of work, play, travel and leisure. Deborah Aiton, who spent 40 years as a registered nurse, will be the instructor.
“For some, retirement means ongoing work, but not necessarily the same work that was ‘the career,’” Aiton said. “For others, more free time opens up the possibility of ‘new work.’ taking classes, volunteering, and/or caring for aging loved ones. This class will challenge the participants to consider what possibilities the future will hold for them.”
The class, which costs $65, meets from 5:30-8 p.m. on Thursdays through April 23 at the Jackson Campus.
