Journey With Us!
Community 50+ is a community about this season of life. This season is where you are right now; you’ve lived at least 50 years on earth, and you’ve learned a lot. You have a lot to share and still a lot to learn. Perspectives shift and new adventures lie ahead, some fun, some not so much, but always better when they’re shared. We are meant to live in community, to share life’s ups and downs and learn from each other as we journey on. Journey with us!
We are really excited about our upcoming “Conversations.” For now they will be via Zoom with the hope of transitioning to in person! Please remember that you must contact Amy Mahan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-774-4318 to receive a link to the “Conversations” of your choice.

Never Stop Growing – Finding Purpose Post-Retirement
That is what our friend Sally Klimko has been doing these past few months as an American Red Cross volunteer. Sally calls her time as a Disaster Relief Responder with the Red Cross “life changing.” She didn’t realize they would need or want her in her post-retirement years – “but boy do they!” We chatted with Sally about her time on deployment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana during Hurricane Laura and then in Yreka, California during the Slater wild fires.
