    How to Prepare for a Post-Retirement Second Act

    Retirement offers a chance to transition into a new job that is unlike anything you've done before.

    LUTHER KEITH RETIRED IN 2005 from his job as an award-winning reporter and editor at the Detroit News. But, he never really retired.

    Keith, 68, has two second careers. By day, he works as executive director of ARISE Detroit, a nonprofit community organization. At night, he morphs into a blues singer and guitarist and is about to release his fifth CD.

    Many people live well into their 80s or 90s, and it is common for people to retire from corporate jobs and try second or encore careers – sometimes branching out into something entirely new. "It's very exciting to have a second career and do something you love," says Christine Russell, senior manager at TD Ameritrade. "With a little bit of preparation, you can do it."

    Here's how to prepare for your post-retirement second career. Read More.

    An open house next Friday, November 2nd at The Beach (our community center). We are going to have a great afternoon/evening filled with wine, snacks and kicking off the arts program. The money we raise that night will go towards supplying FREE art supplies for our program. We will be offering free projects for kids, veterans, elderly, special needs and anyone that would like to participate. We will also be raising funds to help with some built in cabinets, doors and repairs at The Beach to allow us to provide a better space for the community. 

    Would love to have you stop in and see how far we have come in the first year and introduce you to the arts program! Look forward to seeing you soon!

    Thanks!
