Young and retired?

MANCHESTER - The Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning will present "Relevant Octogenarians," a screening by the 92nd Street Y, on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. in the Hunter Seminar Room at Burr and Burton Academy. Admission is $10.

The American population is living longer because of advances in healthcare and pharmaceutical technologies, but a retirement age of 58 may become the norm, and longevity is projected to exceed 83 years. The panel will share relevant information and wisdom for "young retirees." Mayor Ed Koch was mayor of New York City from 1978 to 1989. He is a partner in the law firm of Bryan Cave LLP, hosts a call-in radio program on Bloomberg 1130 AM (WBBR), and is the author of 17 books. George McGovern is a historian, author, and former U. S. Representative, U. S. Senator, and the Democratic Party nominee in the 1972 presidential election. Rupert Murdoch is the founder, chairman and CEO of the global media holding company News Corporation, the world's second-largest media conglomerate. Paul Volcker is the former Federal Reserve chairman and the former chairman of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board. Leonard Lopate is the host of "The Leonard Lopate Show" on WNYC FM. Dr. Deborah Marin is a geriatric psychiatrist and associate professor of psychiatry and geriatrics and palliative medicine at Mount Sinai. Dan Kaplan is former chairman and president of the 92nd Street Y, and is of counsel, at Bryan Cave LLP.

Since 1874, the 92nd Street Y has been serving the New York City community and the world providing exceptional programs across the spectrum -- in the arts and culture, health and fitness, personal growth and travel, and in classes for adults, families and children.

This program is co-sponsored by Israel Congregation of Manchester.
