  • Preparing Financially to Move to a Life Plan Community – What Do I Need to Be Doing Now? – Dave Hampton

How do I know if I’ll have enough to last me through retirement? What are the financial requirements for moving to Friendsview? What are the tax benefits? Dave will address these questions and many more, along with leaving time for your questions. Learn what you can do now to prepare for your move to a Life Plan Community.

– Dave Hampton is Friendsview chief financial officer.

  • The Occasionally Bumpy Road to Friendsview: My Adventure in Moving! – Mary Malinski

What’s it really like when Friendsview reaches your name and you say “yes”? Mary will reflect on things she’s glad she and her husband, John, did in the months leading up to their move to University Village, and some things that, in retrospect, would have been helpful. And, she will share about what the first few months have been like – a pressing question many intent list applicants share.  The seminar will include a booklet that Mary used, Personal Transition, A Checklist by Dr. William Bridges. Intent list applicants anticipating a move in the next one to two years will find Mary’s journey insightful as you prepare for yours.

– Mary Malinski has more than 50 years’ experience in clinical settings providing nursing care and touch therapies with a strong commitment to wellness education and disease prevention. Mary and her husband, John, moved from Durham, Oregon, in December.

  • The Gift of Years: Growing Older Gracefully – Gary Fawver

Joan Chittister has written what is becoming a watershed book for many of us over the age of 65. Chittister simply, yet profoundly, helps us embrace the blessings of getting older and overcoming the burdens of it. Gary Fawver will share insights from this book; he says: I’ve seen the expanding potential for my life, including finding ways to pass on the experiences, wisdom and excitement of my 80-year journey to younger generations.  Consider attending this seminar if you hope to deepen your sense of purpose and fulfillment, especially as you anticipate a move to Friendsview.

– Gary Fawver and his wife, Susan, are residents in Friendsview’s Meadow Way neighborhood. He is the first director of Camp Tilikum and a retired George Fox University professor. Gary volunteers at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.
