Help Wanted

We want to make sure that our LifeTimers group continues to improve and to reflect your wants and needs. With that in mind, we are asking for your input. If you have ideas for future programs or you have contacts with people who have interesting stories to share, please contact Program Coordinator Debby Bussey.

We also want to plan day trips and excursions that are fun, entertaining, and enlightening. Your suggestions for outings would be most welcome. You can contact Lonnie Shuler at to share your ideas for day trips.

Finally, we are always looking for writers for our newsletter. If you are interested in writing for our front page devotional or provide any other content you would like to see in the newsletter, contact Marilyn Gladson.

February LifeTimers Gathering — February 15

Our February program will be presented by Detective David Brinkman, San Antonio Police Department’s White Collar Crimes office, and Special Agent Damian Reyes, Social Security Administration’s Office of the Inspector General who investigates Social Security Fraud. They will speak on the important things they think senior citizens should know about fraud, scams, and other crimes against the elderly. You do not want to miss this pertinent, informative and important presentation.

We will meet on Thursday, February 15th at 11:00 AM in Maresh Hall. A lifetime membership to LifeTimers is yours for a mere $10. And our delicious lunch is only $5 per person. Last month, because the program was in the Sanctuary first, we paid for our lunch at the door as we entered the kitchen area (like on Wednesday nights). It worked so well that we will be continuing that practice. Please do not try to pay before the program.

Programs Overview

If you are not currently a member of our LifeTimers group, you are missing out on lots of fun. As LifeTimers, we “live LIFE fully for the TIME God gives us.” We warmly welcome Woodland’s members who are 55+ and their friends (we have a strict “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy where age is concerned, so don’t let that keep you away).

This is a great opportunity for enjoying a delightful lunch and getting to know others while being entertained by guest performers or speakers. LifeTimers also sponsors local day trips and extended destination trips.

LifeTimers gather together on the third Thursday of the month from September through May in Maresh Hall at 11:00 AM.

If you are interested in becoming a LifeTimer, please contact our Edith Geurin at A LifeTimers one-time membership costs $10; our delicious lunch is $5.
