Is This the Year You Retire?

Did your New Year’s resolutions include retirement in 2016? You’ve planned, you’ve saved, and now the time is here! Congratulations! Now what?

  • Plan a little relaxation. The first order of business – relax! You’re retired! Now’s also a good time to think long-term about your plans. Are you considering a move? Maybe downsizing your home? If you’re thinking about a retirement community, click here for a helpful list of questions to ask.
  • Offer your services. Volunteering is a great way to stay active in retirement on your own schedule and give back to your community. Whether it’s working in a local school, volunteering at an area hospital, coaching youth sports or growing a community garden, there are lots of opportunities in the Orono area to give back. Dirigo residents love getting involved in area fundraisers. The Eastern Maine Walk to End Alzheimer’s is a very special event and charity for the Dirigo Pines community. We hold fundraisers throughout the year to support this important cause and we’re always well represented with a big team at the event.
  • Learn something new. Always wanted to learn to paint? Play cribbage? Grow a garden? Now’s the time! Dirigo Pines offers regular art classes, exercise courses, and dozens of clubs to enjoy cribbage, Scrabble, bridge, and more. Join a reading group or make some new friends in the Out to Lunch Bunch. The possibilities are endless!
