February LifeTimers Gathering — April 19

Thanks to Kay Franklin and her association with Friends of Communities in Schools, we are pleased to have Rosena Garcia speak to us this month. Rosena serves as the Director of High School Programs for Alamo Colleges District. In her role, she works with the five colleges and the service area School Districts to support traditional Dual Credit, Early College High Schools and the Alamo Academies. Garcia led the Alamo Colleges High School Programs Task Force, comprised of 15 of the 37 school districts, to help develop the High School Programs Expansion Plan. This will be very useful information for us to share with our grandchildren — and in some cases, great grandchildren.

We will meet on Thursday, April 19th 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. Please remember our new process and pay for your meal at the door to the kitchen.

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.
