News for seniors – local, international, and YEI specific
Greetings YEI readers
Join the conversation, on the YEI Facebook page.
News, views (serious and tongue-in-cheek), loads of great topics, and plenty of interaction from YEI Facebook fans. Here’s a selection of topics recently discussed on the YEI Facebook page:
A poll was created on the YEI Facebook page, asking the following:
Would YEI members be interested in a group (a safe environment) where they can meet up with other baby boomers, seniors, retirees, pensioners in their area in order to make new friends, meet up for coffee/lunch, start safe walking/hiking groups, arrange to go the theatre and chat about relevant issues pertinent to SA 60plussers?
We also asked where YEI members were from…. Click here
