June 19 – How we retired early, built a yacht and lived aboard for 10 years!: Claire and Paul Smith learned they not only owned too much “stuff,” but it was getting to the point where their “stuff” owned them. They both quit their jobs, sold almost all of their “stuff”, had a boat built and moved aboard to live on and sail the Atlantic Ocean, even though they had never sailed before. Tonight, they will recount how you learn, live and become “full-time cruisers” for 10 years, and then return once again to be “dirt-dwellers.”
June 26 – A Laughing Matter: Kathleen Thoren, MA, is a Licensed Counselor with the Scottsdale Relationship Center who has more than 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples and small groups.
