We are trying something new this April. We have been asked over the years why we could not have our Member 

Meetings in the afternoon and it was because so many of the Board were still working. So on Wednesday April 17th our Member Meetings will be at 2pm (doors open at 1:30pm) at Traditions, 142 John St. as usual.

We hope you will join us on April 17th as our Presenter this month will be Shirley Edwards of Boomer 3.0. As a Life Purpose Coach specializing in Boomers, she will present an overview of how ‘retirement’ and our ‘3rd Act’ is very different than it used to be. Called ‘Reframing Retirement’, Shirley will share the secrets to happiness and longevity in our 3rd Act.

Inspired by her father who was a champion of public service and community sports, Shirley’s desire to help others make a difference has roots that go back to her very beginnings.

As a Life Purpose Coach who recently turned 65, Shirley became inspired by Jane Fonda’s TED talk Third Act. As a result, she created Boomer 3.0 to help people in their own third act, find their next purpose that makes the world a better place.

She spent her early years successfully customizing jobs for people with disabilities based on their skills and intentions. Shirley listens intently and asks the right questions to help people find their unique direction.

Since becoming a Life Coach, Shirley has worked with hundreds of clients – discovering what truly inspires them as well as guiding them on their journey to create a life that they love at every stage of the game😊.

Not only can Shirley help you find your direction, but she also has the skills to help you build your personal legacy project. Over the course of twenty years, she has helped many clients discover what they truly want to do in contribution to ‘community, cause or country’😊.

Most of all, Shirley loves people. She has built relationships with a network of highly skilled and ethical professionals that can provide you with additional specific expertise. Collectively she has access to a wide range of other organizations and resources that can help you live ‘on purpose’.
