Explore options for aging Friday in Raleigh

From staff reportsJuly 16, 2013 

— People who are older than 60 or are just interested in exploring new options for aging are invited to a session entitled "Creating Community for Later Life," scheduled for 7-9 p.m. Friday at the Unity Church of the Triangle.

The church, sponsor for the gathering, is at the corner of Person and Harget in downtown Raleight. Bolton Anthony, founder of the nonprofit Second Journey, will be guest speaker for the event.

"What do I mean by community?" convener Kayelily Middleton said in a press release. "We will determine that — it could be just social activities, it could be developing some version of co-housing, it could be educational opportunities, it could be eldering as a spiritual path, it could be a Sunday School class, or all of the above."

Participants will be asked to fill out a survey on their interests in the area of aging as a guide to starting a group or several groups.

Space is limited. To reserve a spot, please email kayelily@gmail.com or call 919-345-4608.
