Register Now for Center for Lifelong Learning Event on May 3, 2019

If you, like many other retirees, find yourself thinking, “What does tomorrow hold?” you should consider attending a one-day seminar on Friday, May 3 at Northwest State Community College. Four speakers will each have a slice of the day called “Tomorrow? Tomorrow?” The program, which will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m., is sponsored by the NSCC Center for Lifelong Learning. The cost is $12.50, including lunch, and is payable at the door with advance reservations. Scheduled presenters include:

Tanya Likens, State of Ohio Ombudsman program employee: A graduate of both Northwest State and Defiance College, Tanya has devoted her career to looking out for the needs of those who need a voice. Her passion for her job, under the umbrella of the ABLE program, will help attendees better know what can be done if action is necessary.

Dr. Susan Brown, Bowling Green State University professor and chair of sociology: Dr. Brown will share the latest research on how marriage, divorce and intimate partnerships are changing during the second half of life. More older adults are unmarried these days, but that does not necessarily mean they are unpartnered. These trends and their implications for individuals, their families and society will be addressed.

Matt Garrow, Engler, Garrow & Roth, Ltd.: The Fulton County native will bring his 33-year expertise in observing families struggle with elder caregiving challenges. His goal will be to help participants be better prepared to meet these challenges head on. The experienced financial planner continues to be active on the family farm, growing corn and soybeans on 534 acres. He will discuss how to address delicate issues with your children to ensure your own wishes are carried out.

The final program segment will look at the effects of plastics on the environment. The segment includes a review of a compelling 2018 news video, along with a discussion about its impact and what we can do to help.
