"Compass Points," is a FREE directional panel discussion series on the 3rd Thursday of each month @ 11:30am. It's only one hour in length and think of it as a "Lunch & Learn."

Our goal is to make sure these Compass Points are Educational & Entertaining, providing the tips & tools you need to be happy, safe and successful.

They are designed to provide you with current information to help you right now, and also to prepare & plan for a healthy future.....financially, legally, medically, comfortably, supportively, and pleasurably.

Mark your calendar for the 3rd Thursday of each month and register for any/all of our upcoming series, which have been strategically positioned to easily fit into your schedule.


All "Compass Points" will be on the ZOOM platform so you can ask questions of the presenters. Sit back, tune in, and have a bite to eat while we present you, "Compass Points."
