Westlake’s Exploring 50+ Expo Challenges Boomers to Think Beyond Finances When Entering Retirement

The City of Westlake and Westlake Porter Public Library have partnered to bring an event designed to educate and inform Baby Boomers about the exciting options awaiting them upon retirement.

The City’s first Exploring 50+ Expo is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Westlake Senior & Community Center, 29694 Center Ridge Rd.

“Most people only focus on preparing their financial portfolio for retirement, and once that day arrives, many scratch their heads thinking ‘now what?’” said Lydia Gadd, Director of Senior & Community Services. “We want Westlake Boomers to confidently head into retirement with a plan – exploring their interests in civic engagement, life-long learning, travel and more.”

The Exploring 50+ Expo provides attendees with a unique presentation and interactive displays featuring options and ideas for prospective retirees planning their “second act.” Guests can expect information about leisure, travel, lifelong learning opportunities, civic organizations and seeking encore careers. The purpose of the expo is for Boomers to learn how to retire TO something rather FROM something.

The event is open to the public and no reservation is required. Visit www.cityofwestlake.org or call Westlake Center at 440-899-3544 to learn more about the coming 2019 Exploring 50+ Expo.
