ROCHELLE, Ill. - Illinois Extension offers free programming at the Hub City Senior Center in Rochelle this summer. The first workshop will be held on July 24 from 1-2 pm. Kara Schweitzer, University of Illinois Extension Educator, dives into aging and the many changes that happen along the way – physically, mentally, and financially – in about every aspect of our lives. Why can change be so difficult to manage? Participants will examine major life changes we experience and explore ways to adopt a more accepting mindset that will improve well-being and open new opportunities!  

Schweitzer will focus on decluttering your home and finances during the second workshop on August 15 from 12:30-2 pm. Do you feel overwhelmed trying to organize your belongings? Do you have a filing cabinet spilling over with financial paperwork? By attending this program, you will explore reasons for clutter and how it makes you feel, understand what financial documents need to be kept while discussing options to discard sensitive documents, learn the benefits of decluttering and minimizing, and identify strategies to create a plan to clear your clutter.

Advance registration is suggested for each workshop. To register, please call Hub City Senior Center at 815-562-5050. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, please call Kara Schweitzer at (815) 632-3611 by July 19.
