Lifetree event to discuss how to lead satisfying life
How to live a satisfying life, even in difficult times, will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.
The program, "Secrets of Finding Contentment: Live a Satisfying Life," features a filmed interview with Justin Mayo, who organizes senior proms — for senior citizens.
"I'd say it's the most incredible dance you'll ever go to," Mayo said. "We've learned that when you love and focus on others, the most empowering, incredible experiences really do happen."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4838 or email@example.com.
