Vegetarian lunch available if pre-ordered. All rooms are air conditioned; suggest clothing layers for comfort. ASL interpreters available for some sessions. Be informed, be inspired and be encouraged by this day of special topics, informative speakers and valuable information.

Opening Featured Speakers: Bob Wolfe and Gloria Shanahan have dedicated their lives to challenging baby-boomers, and those in the so-called “sandwich generation” to be pro-active as they face the challenges of change, aging, and the care of their loved ones. Both will address the inspiration for their long-running, top-rated weekly radio program, There is a Season. Using a combination of research, listener feedback, humor, and a variety of anecdotal moments-of-truth, they’ll share their insights about the importance of “becoming,” no matter your age.
