Library program focuses on retirees

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Twin Lakes Library System will host an event catered to retired residents of Baldwin County titled “Dig Out Before You’re Planted.”

The program is planned in association with the 2013 Summer Reading Club. The event will be held Monday at the Mary Vinson Memorial Library starting at 6 p.m. 

“I decided to plan ‘Dig Out Before You’re Planted’ since our community has so many organizations that cater to community members that are living the post-retirement life,” said Twin Lakes Outreach Coordinator Sarah Hamil. 

Retirees will enjoy a night of enlightening information about important topics they may come across during retirement. Representatives from various clubs and organizations in Milledgeville will also be in attendance to provide participants with ideas and activities that are available for them to partake in.  

“Many of the patrons that our library serves are over 55. I thought that it would be nice to have an evening that highlights some of these great resources in Milledgeville and the surrounding areas,” said Hamil. 

Participating organizations include Georgia College’s Learning In Retirement, New Horizons Travel Club, Century Bank Travel Club, Readers Book Club, Café Central, Baldwin County Retired Educators Association, Savannah Court Senior Living, Green Acres Health & Rehabilitation, Lynnhaven Health & Rehabilitation, Williams’ Funeral Home, Moore’s Funeral Home and Laura Burns from Burns & Burns Law. In addition to community organizations being present, there will also be book lists, organizational books, and an area for guests to make their own bucket lists.  

“Dealing with affairs later in life isn’t really something that people look forward to. I tried to put a lighthearted spin on the event by including some of the fun parts of retirement, like continuing education, traveling, and doing things that you haven’t been able to do while you had a working life,” said Hamil.
