I belong to the AARP, but I mostly like to read their magazine and use the senior discount. Otherwise, I’m too busy to be in any clubs – unless you count golfing with the same group of guys every month.”

I’m an active member of the Knights of Columbus, which is a Catholic men’s group. I spend a lot time doing things for them. I’m also on the board of my subdivision’s homeowners’ association, and that meets once a month or so.”

I wish I had the time to do those types of things. My friends want me to join their little knitting group, but I still work full time, and I’ve got more than 20 grandchildren. All those kids keep me young and very busy.”

Thanks to my husband, I haven’t had to work since my kids were born, and now that they’re both in college, I can spend more time with my friends. And I help organize music and kids’ events at the Jewish Community Center.”
