Act Two Launches October 30

JFS invites men to a new facilitated discussion group, Act Two, on Sunday, October 30 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. at JFS at 1633 W. 7th Street in St Paul. This group will focus on areas men navigate in midlife.

October’s topic will be “When I’m Sixty-Four (with apologies to Sir Paul McCartney).” The session is designed to help men plan their post-work life. The discussion will focus on some of the following issues and others raised by attendees including, “how do I envision this next chapter of my life,” exploring social, educational, relationship, volunteer and other opportunities, health considerations and caregiving challenges and resources.

Act Two facilitator Stan Lapidos retired two years ago and relocated to St. Paul after a 45-year career in the field of aging and health care. He worked in a variety of settings including administrative and faculty positions in long term care, governmental programs, managed care, academic teaching and chronic disease research and has given retirement talks to a variety of audiences. He recently joined the board of JFS.
