Men’s Group (GHOTH)


MONTHLY FIELD TRIPS:  Each month visits are arranged to local places of interest.


Monthly trips are organized for the men to local areas of interest.  Some cost may be involved to cover admission or make a donation to the organization.  The trips usually take place in the morning during the last Wednesday or Thursday followed by lunch at a local restaurant or pub.  Normally we carpool from CB55+ leaving between 9:00 and 10:00 am and return between 2:000 and 3:00 pm.


We are already planning trips for the Fall and after Christmas so if you have any ideas or connections please let one of the committee know (Alex Izett, Mike Mooney, or Dave Docherty).  Tom Robinson has been very helpful and is looking into a couple of places for us. 




Tuesday, December 11th — “Why So Many Retirees Are Restless and Unfulfilled” — 1:00 – 2:00 pm. — Big Room  (Presentation)

This is a presentation aimed specifically to the men of CB55+.  It seems many men find retirement a difficult transition and need some guidance in making the adjustment.  Even if we are successful we often ask ourselves if there is someway to get more out of the retirement years.  Bill Henderson is an experienced presenter on this topic and has offered to come and share his perspective and insights.  Even if you feel you have made the adjustment you may wish to come and hear what he has to say.


Find out what the latest research says causes the low levels of contentment among many retirees and what can be done to rescue the life-after-work they expected.


If you wish to attend please sign up in one of the black folders in the lounge.  If you would like further information please contact David Docherty (
