Transitions: Oh, the places you’ll go

Volunteering is a daring way to savor the world. You are transitioning, with a life-time accumulation of useful experience and with a well-honed brain. You know there’s a "dance in the old girl/boy yet." Volunteering provides you with an extraordinarily exciting menu of possibilities. Take two weeks and go to Cote d’Ivoire to build a home with Habitat for Humanity; spend two years with Peace Corps in Mongolia or Eastern Europe or Africa; invest a day a week working in Denver. Join Rotary, or another service club, and choose among the rich array of service opportunities in the U.S. and abroad. Learn more about these opportunities on Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 4:30 p.m. at the DBA offices, 1900 Grant St., Suite 900. Cost is $10 for members, $15 for nonmembers. One CLE credit applied for. To register, e-mail or call (303) 860-1115, ext. 727.
