October Coffee Morning

Friday 13th October at 10 am till 12 noon
Room 9 at the College
Guest speaker: Dianne Wicks.

“If you’re not dead, you’re not done”

“This quote of Craig Groeshal’s does much to summarise my retirement philosophy. Retiring at age 65 from a career in nursing, I moved to Bengaluru India for a post-retirement adventure. Teaching English, in a school committed to educating children from local rock-quarry communities, became my career for the next two years.”

Dianne Wicks

Come along and hear Dianne share her adventure of volunteering in a foreign country, living alone as a mature-aged woman in a different culture. She will share her experience and the insights gained. Dianne has recently returned from another
visit to India.
