Aug. 23, 2010 - California State University, Bakersfield's 60+ Club Possibilities Day will be held on Thursday, Sept. 9, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the CSUB Student Union, Multi-Purpose Room, 9001 Stockdale Highway. Coffee, tea, and cookies will be served. Admission and parking are free.
Possibilities Day is the 60+ Club's annual kick-off event to invite retirees and residents 60 years of age and up to learn more about the benefits of membership by exploring the wide variety of Interest Group activities and Action Network volunteer opportunities. The featured speaker will be CSUB president Dr. Horace Mitchell.
Sharon Goldsmith, 60+ Club president, encourages all residents to attend. "The 60+ Club is a great way to meet people and get active in the campus community. In the spring, the 60+ Club will celebrate 25 years of service, learning, and fellowship," she said.
The 60+ Club is a member-motivated and member-governed organization working in partnership with CSUB. Its purpose is to provide personal enrichment, educational opportunities, volunteer opportunities, and social activities in a campus environment. There are no educational requirements to join, and participation is voluntary.
In addition to monthly 60+ Club meetings and newsletters during the academic year, members receive advantages such as special ticket pricing to campus events, use of the Walter Stiern Library, and taking designated courses. Members may also choose to volunteer through the Action Network or join in the activities of a dozen Interest Groups.
Directions: Enter CSUB from Stockdale Highway on Don Hart Drive East. Park in either Lot L or Lot K. A parking permit is not needed for this event. For more information, call Denise Nielsen at 661-654-3211.
