Baby Boomers: The Making of Elder Culture

This weekly group will focus on exploring our own stories and how we want to take action today as we participate in the “longevity revolution.” Facilitator Cecile Andrews is the author of Living Room Revolution, Less Is More, Slow Is Beautiful and Circle of Simplicity. Call 206.297.0875 to RSVP.
