The greatest gift in retirement is time – time to spend on the things you love to do and time to find new things to enjoy. This course is aimed at helping us find new things to do by sharing our skills and passions with each other.
Have you gotten good at genealogy? Tell us how to start our own family tree. Are you a good photographer? Tell us how to take better pictures of our grandchildren or the places we visit. Make great breads or know the best way to make French press coffee at home? Share the skills with us. Let us know how to start enjoying jazz, or how to start writing poetry, or which local museums to visit. Fantasy football, flower arranging, or something fun you do monthly with a group of friends – anything that can add to our enjoyment of retirement is an appropriate subject.
Each participant will have around 30 minutes to share a passion, skill or hobby with us. It should be something the average FRF member can do in retirement using skills we have or could reasonably acquire. Extra points are awarded for those things that can be done at home or locally. The presentation needs to in- clude information on the best way to get started and, if appropriate, some idea of the cost.
Join us as we strive to make retirement even more enjoyable.
