As of Sunday, March 15th, we are focusing on bringing you news and updates, activities, local information, some cheerful songs and hopefully a little humor, about the coronavirus.

Please go to our blog to enjoy the above information, sign up for our email list or join in on our weekly Zoom meetings which are held Thursdays at 10:00 AM.  Click here for the blog.

I have removed some of the pages from our navigation menu and hope to return them in the near future. Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Stay healthy, stay safe!

Retired, Semi-Retired or Soon to Retire in the Greater Buffalo Grove Area (or beyond)?

Planning or adjusting to retirement after an active working life is challenging for most.

This group was formed to discuss issues and to share information and knowledge about retirement. We will lend each other support to overcome some of the challenges we face as we seek out new opportunities. These may include finding new purpose and meaning, setting new goals or tackling topics such as exercise, health, bucket lists, etc.  See a list of upcoming meetings.

We do promise to avoid discussing finances, politics and religion.

We’ll also have some fun and plan social events together such as seeing movies, summer concerts, walking together, visiting local attractions and events etc.  See a list of upcoming area social events. We’ve even added some group volunteer opportunities as well as special interest sub-groups!

Read about past meetings and social events on our blog.

Guest speakers are scheduled at one meeting per month to discuss pertinent topics.

More diversity will be added depending on the interests of group members.

So please join us if you’re interested in enjoying your new freedom, exploring your future and making new friends with like-minded people or if you just need a reason to get out of the house.

We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month starting in 2018 from 9:30 AM to approximately 11:30 AM at Buffalo Grove’s Alcott Center, 530 Bernard Dr, Room 9 (or check the board), Buffalo Grove, IL 60089.

Becoming a member of the Buffalo Grove Park District’s Club 50 to participate is not required, but is encouraged. You can also attend other Club 50 events at no or reduced fees. For a Buffalo Grove resident the annual membership fee is $20, non-residents pay $25.
