News for seniors – local, international, and YEI specific

Editors desk


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? 

Click here to see the poll.
We would like your views too, either in the comments section below, on the Facebook poll, or send an email to info@youve-earned-it.co.za with your view.

We also asked where YEI members were from….  Click here
