Living Life Fully

As you enter or are already into retirement, how do you serve….yourself? Your family? Your church? Your community?  

In the first in a series of presentations, Deaconess and RN Penny Cedel will share information geared to help you
– understand your gifts & talents and how they can be utilized best
– plan for the complicated or emotionally heavy decisions you need to make as a gift to your family
– be sure your wishes are carried out
The key is to plan and express your wishes now while you are healthy, rather than have determinations made by someone who might not have your roadmap. There is homework, so be ready to do some thinking, planning and organizing.
