Jefferson County summit on Aging! Did you know that Jefferson County has the largest number of folks age 60 and over in the state and that number is expected to double by the year 2020? What will that mean for shop owners? For folks who work on designing street signs and road markings? For those looking to enhance their workforce with mature volunteers?

Come see why we were voted Friendliest Sta  and Best Value in the South Denver 2009 Showcase of Retirement Communities. Retirement has its rewards. 5.10 By Virginia Cellars Two retired Coors employees have en-hanced their lives and the lives of oth-ers by volunteering many hours at the Front Porch Senior Program at the Golden Community Center. Irene Obermeyer taught in a one- room school house in Ne-braska. In 1957, she and her hus-band moved to Colorado, and she worked for Coors for 25 years. She has volunteered and contrib-uted her time in many ways at the Golden Community Center. Ev-ery Thursday visitors are greeted by her gracious smile at the front desk. She also prepares healthy snacks at Celebrate Health! on the first Friday each month. In ad-dition, Irene helps facilitate the Hands and Hearts, who donate knitted and crocheted items to churches and agencies to distrib-ute in the metro area, and in some cases even overseas. Carol Youman has followed a similar path, arriving in Colorado in 1958 from New Jersey. After a 30- year career at Coors' ceramics division, she decid-ed to share her tal-ent as a quilter in the Center's Gold-en Needlecraft-ers group. Carol also helps run the free blood pres-sure checks at Celebrate Health! and swims at the Center 4 times a week. She and her husband enjoy their motor home and often visit their 4 children across the west. Front Porch serves seniors. In addition to health fairs and needle-craft sessions, it offers sports clin-ics, card games, seminars, art and exercise classes, and local trips. Debbie Van Dyke coordinates the older adult programs at the Center and has heartfelt praise for both Irene and Carol: " They put in full- time hours and deserve to be recognized for their outstand-ing, generous efforts to the Golden community." Join RSVP, a national assoc. of volunteers 55 and better, for a challenging and rewarding volun-teer opportunity.
