The Learning in Retirement Program for Oct. 16 will feature Bruce and Jeanette Flaming of Dallas, Ore.
The Flamings will present “Transitions,” which will focus on their first years of retirement.
Bruce and Jeanette graduated from Tabor College in 1958. Bruce continued his education and graduated from Kansas City College of Osteopathy in 1962.
For 30 years, Bruce practiced family medicine and anesthesiology in Dallas. He served as an anesthesiologist for the purpose of reconstructive surgery for Romanian orphans and was co-founder of Oregon Mennonite Residential Services, which operates homes for the developmentally disabled.
After moving to Washington, D.C., Bruce became medical director for So Others May Eat, an organization that provides full services for the restoration of the lives of the homeless population near the D.C. area.
While living in Washington, Jeanette was involved in various service projects, including working on Capitol Hill for Mennonite Central Committee. She also served as a board member of Fresno (Calif.) Pacific University and has traveled worldwide for MCC.
In 2001, the Flamings were awarded the Tabor College Merit Award for their work.
The session will begin at 10:10 a.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center at Tabor College.
Cost is $4 a session or $15 per semester. Older adults who have never attended a Learning in Retirement program are encouraged to attend free of charge. Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door.
