Live Well Silver and Gold Club brings together the talents and resources of those 55 & older in Southwest Missouri.
The Live Well club fosters an environment of companionship, growth, fun and social interaction enriching the lives of all who participate. The club meets regularly at different venues determined by the activity.
Ruth Ann Wood-Humiston, PhD second-generation funeral director and owner of Walnut Lawn Funeral Home, founded the Live Well Silver & Gold Club of Southwest Missouri, an outreach program to address the unique needs of mature adults. There are different seasons and chapters in life, many resulting from an empty nest, loss of a loved one, being new to the community, or simply not knowing what to do with themselves as they face retirement. Live Well is specifically designed to help members stay active and make healthy connections as they move from one chapter to the next.
To provide a supportive platform for our members that will strengthen and stimulate their emotional, intellectual and physical health while providing a variety of activities and events that promote meaningful interaction and friendships enhancing happiness and life satisfaction as part of a life well lived.
