What's New

A Discovery Workshop for Boomer+

“We know what we are, but not what we may be.”
—William Shakespeare.

We grow and change as we move through life. But how do we thrive in each stage? Join the Vital Aging Network for this fun workshop to explore what you “may be.” Engage with others as you examine your your skills and talents, your interests and values and start to think about how they might be used to meet needs in our communities.

Workshops in Roseville and Bloomington in August and September. Read more.
