Retirement Planning and Tax Success in 2021

Randy & Nic Yeomans, Instructors (Class size - 25)

Join us for an information-packed 2021 fun and educational experience. Learn about NEW and proposed Tax and Retirement Plan changes that may impact your income and taxes in 2021. This class will explore what you can do, legally, to keep more of your money from going to Uncle Sam. IRA’s and 401k’s had many rule changes for 2020. Even more changes are being proposed now with a new Presidential Administration. Taxes on Capital Gains and Dividend Income may dramatically change. Other topics discussed include: Updating your Estate Planning documents, including Wills and Trusts; and Addressing Long Term Care Planning. Your ELM instructor has a passion for education and has been teaching Retirement, Tax and Estate Planning for over 25 years.

Savvy Seniors

Barbara Key, Instructor (Class size - 40)

This class has something for everyone. We have a different presenter each week covering a variety of topics and activities of interest to Seniors. In the past we have covered: History, travel, health, technology, legal issues, IRS and even had a visit from a handler and his dog from the K9 Unit. We promote lively discussion and at times have been able to offer views and experiences to broaden the knowledge of our presenters.

1:00 - 2:00 pm

Laughter is My Best Anti-aging Remedy

Dr. Mark Levine, Instructor (Class size - 20)

You Need to Laugh, and since research shows that laughter contributes to living longer, this class will help you live “forever”(or not). So, all you immortals, get away from “it all” for an hour each week and laugh at the: vintage comedians (comedy teams) we love and remember, words we use, games we play and “Crazzy” situations we experience as seniors. Learn how to create humor and find out if you are still as “sharp as a tack”. Join us and share the humor and laughter we need, because Laughter is My Best Anti-aging Remedy.

You may register for as many Spring classes as you would like for a $50 registration fee. Classes are open to anyone, anywhere, who is 50 years of age or older.


All classes will be taught online using Zoom videoconferencing technology.
