 Men, Let’s Talk

Men, our work is winding down or changing. Our children have moved on. Our thoughts now center on the options associated with growing older. We think more about our health, our relationships, and our resources. All of a sudden, our world looks different. This men’s discussion group is a time to talk, to listen and to share stories and experiences in a safe, no obligation environment. It’s a time to dig a little deeper into who we are, and continue to grow as we look at the years ahead. Instructor: Ron Browne
