Retiring South of the River: Conversation with Civic Leaders

Wednesday, April 26 // 10:00 am - Noon
Cost: Free, please register for planning purposes

Presenters include:
Mayor Bill Droste, Rosemount
Mayor Mike Maguire, Eagan
Bruce Nordquist, Community Development Director, Apple Valley

Where should I retire?  Should I stay right where I am?  Would you like to know what three of our local communities are currently planning, and will be implementing, to ensure that our communities are safe, comfortable and compelling places to retire?

To help answer those questions, the Purposeful Retirement Group at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church is hosting a panel presentation and time for discussion with city leaders from Apple Valley, Eagan and Rosemount.  All members of our “South-of-the River” communities are invited to participate in this informal gathering.

The program will feature presentations on housing, transportation and available services -   with the goal of keeping life purposeful for seniors through educational and social opportunities, civic engagement and spiritual exploration. 

You'll also have opportunities to ask questions of the presenters and to brainstorm ideas about how we can all contribute to the quality of our local communities.
