“Humor’ in the Semi-Golden Years
June 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
A humorous take on growing old uncomfortably, utilizing stories, poems, and personal experiences.
“I will be doing my own semi-amusing stories, poems, and maybe even a song for about forty minutes.
It would be awesome to see some familiar faces in the midst of the Retirement Club throng.
Free admission and all ages welcome.
Skip work or school, I’ll write you a note.
Free coffee and donuts start at 8:00 am but, trust me, get there early!
I’m scheduled to go on around 9:20am, so set your alarm. Join the fun”
