The community education course is free; however, those interested should register with Community Ed to ensure there are enough materials for everyone.

How people plan ahead for retirement and beyond can greatly affect the quality of life they live. Learn about some basic tools to have in place, who you can call upon, and how to be prepared for emergencies so you can better cope with crises and make decisions as we get older and live longer. Discover the local resources available to lend support.

“Rural Minnesota is a great place to age among friends,” Faith in Action officials said in a news release. It “also helps to dream and think creatively, exploring new things and places when it comes to aging and retirement.”

There will be time during the session for questions, sharing and discussion.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
