February is such an exciting month. There is a buzz in the air, an excitement that can only be seniors in their prime! Our feature this month is “Retired, Not Expired,” by Emma Young, where we learn life only begins at retirement.
If you are concerned about your retirement or that of a loved one being interrupted by financial issues, you will be interested in “Westminster Ingleside Foundation,” our “Giving Back,” also by Emma Young. Learn about this foundation; its Gala and how it assists residents of Westminster who may have outlived their income but also how the program enriches the lives of children, and even employees of Westminster.
“Family Fun” is popping with fresh ideas for Valentine’s day snacks. Make some yummies for your family, neighbors and friends, maybe even your local fire and rescue department. (Hint hint.) Take pictures of your creations and tag them with #ShareTheLovePWL. We’ll post your handiwork on our social media pages, and you’ll be eligible for a prize package.
Check out our print calendar of events at princewilliamliving.com/events for ways to come out of hibernation this month. And if you can’t quite make it off the couch? Then get out into the community virtually, with our 2017 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide at princewilliamliving.com/pwlgiftguide/ supporting local business in the process. #buylocal
