Women Aging with Wisdom and Grace Salon/Discussion Group

Ever wonder what our succeeding years will bring? Come join us for a welcoming conversation on women and aging. We will explore what it means to age in our youth-driven society and how each of us faces the challenges and rewards of getting older. Women Aging with Wisdom & Grace is an open and supportive environment where women can safely discuss aging, in all its wonders and challenges. All books are suggested readings, not required, which makes it different from a conventional book group. All meetings also include an optional potluck, so bring a dish to share if you'd like to.

This group meets about every six weeks, on Sundays from 10 a.m. to Noon. 

Facilitators: Connie Kiosse (c.kiosse@gmail.com) & 
Lynn Money (lynn@womenandchildrenfirst.com)
