Exploring Elderhood

2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The sleeping elders awaken…for another great year of Exploring Elderhood! We start with a reprise of one of the most popular sessions we had last year. Glenn Benge, Professor Emeritus of Classic Art, is coming back to give us another tour de force of some artistic masterpieces and the secrets behind the works and the artists. The invitation for this one is wide open to elders of all ages. There will be a more detailed email to those on the Exploring Elderhood list. If you are not on the list and want to be, email Gerry Whelan at gwhelanmd@gmail.com.

This program meets on the second Friday of each month at 2PM in the USG Assembly Room. Its purpose is to celebrate the path, with emphasis on the spiritual path, of all who are aging (that’s all of us!) but especially those who consider themselves Elders (or wannabe Elders) and is open USG members, guest and visitors with no minimum age requirement.

Each month a team of Exploring Elderhood members prepare and present a program on a relevant topic and after initial presentation there is generally a time for small group discussions and then a reconvening to share experiences. Each session is also followed by a potluck TGIF with wine and cheese, tea and crumpets and such. At all times our goal is to accentuate the positive and have fun together as we share our journeys into the second act of life! And we do!
