Please Don’t Call Me Honey!
Presented by Dorie Furman
Tuesday, June 27 at 10:15 a.m. in the MACC Boardroom

Cost: Free RSVP to Suzi Malman at 303.316.6358 or smalman@jccdenver.org
When people reach the stage where they are considered seniors, a strange phenomenon occurs;they lose their identity. Instead of being called Mr. or Mrs. Goldberg, they are called “sweetie” or “honey” by those who are younger—it happens in the doctor's office, at the grocery store, or wherever people go out in public. Presenter Dorie Furman thinks it's time we seniors stand up for ourselves and remind those under 50 that we are not relics, but are very much alive and need to be treated with respect and called by name. Doriehas had many professions, including nurse, medical administration for the federal government, and an investigator of guardianship cases for the courts, and is now retired. She lives with her two rescue dogs, does volunteer work in the community, and gives motivational talks to try and keep people from becoming lethargic about life.
