    Being a member of LiR has allowed me to meet many interesting and interested people here in Nelson. Being new here it felt like I could belong to this community while stimulating my mind with excellent Friday morning sessions and multi-day courses as well as having meaningful social contact with so many other retirees.

    Being on the social committee lets me contribute to LiR and develops a closer connection with fellow volunteers. This experience heightens my appreciation of the work all of the committees do. And as always, “The more you put in, the more you get out.” We are mutually supportive and have a lot of fun planning and attending social functions.
