Celebrating Life Experiences
Our BoomerVenture Campus has a little bit for everyone. Besides several exercise classes, there are lectures and workshops on a wide range of topics as well as a film festival. We're always open to suggestions for subject matter. If you're interested in a topic chances are someone else is also.
Boomers Making Life Investment
Baby-boomers are heavily invested in how to live life to the fullest, focusing in particular on travel, health and wellness, financial independence, and new occupational opportunities. They are also the "sandwich" generation, frequently still raising children while they are increasingly caring for their own ailing parents.
Are you aware:
- you are a Boomer if you were born 1946-1964?
- there are 78 million of us in the USA right now?
- average U.S. retirement savings is only $50,000?
- In Andover alone over 6,400 residents are over 60
Looking for Adventure
What it all comes down to is that there is a place in every boomer heart which still longs to "head out on the road, lookin' for adventure." BoomerVenture's mission is to simply let everyone know there's no better place to find that adventure than right here, right now, in our own backyard.
The first baby-boomers just started turning 60 a few years ago. It's a group that was never going to get old … and they're not. At least, not like any previous generation. Unlike their parents, baby boomers simply refuse to see themselves as aging. Many toss their AARP invitations out as soon as they come through their door because they are a generation looking for more meaningful alternatives to traditional "retirement."
BoomerVenture is an initiative to engage Andover's 50+ population in a series of activities and events aimed at stimulating interests endemic to their generation and broadening their involvement not only with each other, but Andover as a whole. With the mandate to advocate, educate and engage, BoomerVenture is utilizing input from local focus groups to develop an appetizing menu of programs, from money management to care giving.
