AARP Alaska, Older Persons Action Group and the Anchorage Senior Activity Center continues its series of “Age Smart – Let’s Talk” forums on March 9, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Events are currently held virtually on the internet, using Zoom.
The March topic is chess. Learn how the game of chess can build community by teaching social and life-skills across diverse populations, with presenters from Alaska Chess -- President Colleen Evanco, VP Andrew Haas and Secretary Jonathon Singler. Alaska Chess’ goal is to create an all-encompassing, friendly, and competitive chess culture by establishing local community chess programs in schools and in rehabilitation centers such as hospitals, retirement homes, and correctional facilities.
The “Age Smart – Let’s Talk” series is a monthly forum that focuses on a topic of interest and importance to Alaskans who want to be thoughtful about how to make good choices as they grow older. The series is developed to provide working age adults with information necessary to plan and fulfill a secure, healthy and satisfying “life After 60” (all ages are welcome). Each month the series highlights a particular topic with a variety of formats, including issue experts, panel discussions, interactive presentations, and plenty of time for questions.
Admission is free and open to everyone. Presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. To sign up, go to AARP’s event page at https://bit.ly/3dLpRJo.
