"Let's Continue the Conversation!"
Five years ago we had panel discussions on Our Careers, Our Retirement Activities and Our Travels.The contributions of panel members and attendees were fascinating and inspiring. This time, rather than panels, we would like everyone to come prepared to contribute a brief summary (so that there is time for everyone to speak) on each of these topics:
•Retirement Activities--interesting activities, hobbies, interests which you are pursuing in retirement. Your activities may give your classmates new ideas for achieving fulfilling retirement years!
•Travel--traveling you have done since our last reunion. Your destinations may become destinations for more of us!
•Books--all time favorites of yours, books which have been influential in your life or something you have read recently and would recommend.
