Objective(s)/Description: This session is for all those fifty-five and over who wish to affirm themselves as viable persons in spite of prevailing notions of what it means to be aged, older, a sexagenarian.  Reaching retirement age and entering retirement poses challenges for many of us.  Often, our vision and others, is of one sitting on an expansive front porch in a rocking chair reminiscing about old times with family or friends.  The truth is, reaching the stage of retirement is a major step to a new and often rewarding future.  However, with this step may come self-imposed and externally imposed challenges.  We will discuss these challenges as well as identify rationally selected options for affirmatively experiencing this next stage of our lives.
