Today’s baby boomers can expect to live longer in their retirement years due to rapid advances in science, medicine and technology in comparison to previous generations. As a result, the concern over the possibility of increased longevity is causing a major paradigm shift in how people view and prepare for their retirement.

In particular, the timing of when to claim one’s Social Security benefits was once a simple decision and now requires advanced planning and a coordinated strategy. For many retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important financial decision can be a major step toward a more comfortable retirement.

The program seeks to explore retirement from a time perspective as well as the impact of longevity in order to help attendees (ages 55+) make a more informed decision before choosing when to claim their Social Security benefits. Topics covered include recent changes in legislation, why Social Security is crucial to women, avoiding frequent claiming mistakes and the best way to maximize benefits.

The workshop is sponsored by Retirement Solutions, LLC and is open to the general public. There is no cost to attend. Advanced registration is required. Light refreshments will served.

Lincoln Center at the Movies presents 

George Balanchine's The Nutcracker New York City Ballet

Experience the wonder of New York City Ballet's iconic holiday classic on the big screen. In George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, Tchaikovsky's beloved melodies transport the young and young at heart to a magical world where mischievious mice besiege a battalion of toy soldiers, and an onstage blizzard leads to an enchanted Land of Sweets. Balanchine's stunning choreography shines amidst awe-inspiring set pieces, ornate costumes, and grand one-of-a-kind visual effects, like the one-ton Christmas tree that grows to an astonishing 40 feet. The New York City Ballet's beloved production has been performed in New York City every year since its premiere on February 2, 1954, and is seen live by more than 100,000 people annually.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the dawn of the twentieth century, a great confidence suffused America. Isaac Cline was one of the era's new men, a scientist who believed he knew all there was to know about the motion of clouds and the behavior of storms. The idea that a hurricane could damage the city of Galveston, Texas, where he was based, was to him preposterous, "an absurd delusion." It was 1900, a year when America felt bigger and stronger than ever before. Nothing in nature could hobble the gleaming city of Galveston, then a magical place that seemed destined to become the New York of the Gulf.

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this wake-up call for general readers and undergraduate students, environmental journalist Joel K. Bourne argues that climate change could make it impossible to feed the growing global population in the next 40 years. The accessible narrative takes general readers around the world to meet individuals, families, activists, and agricultural innovators in small and large farms and research projects. The book’s engaging style, larger type, and black and white photos offer further appeal. Author Bourne has written for National Geographic, Audubon, Science, and Outside. He holds a BS in agronomy and a MS in journalism. Annotation ©2015 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard Professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).
