Free travel, money and health workshops for women coming up in Vancouver

Umpqua Bank is hosting a series of three free workshops in Vancouver for women on the topics of travel, money management and health. The workshops are planned the third Thursday of the month beginning in August from 4 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. at Heathman Lodge, 7801 N.E. Greenwood Drive in Vancouver, Wash.

Called "Lessons for Women, By Women," the workshop topics are:
• Traveling on A Shoestring, Aug. 19
• Your Money and Retirement, Sept. 16
• Healthy Habits, Oct. 21
Gloria Johnson and I are workshop presenters. Johnson is in her 11th year directing Umpqua Bank's Club Carefree program, which offers worldwide entertainment and travel opportunities to people over the age of 50. Her Traveling on a Shoestring seminar on Aug. 19 will offer tips on how women can travel safely, stick to a budget, and enjoy learning about other cultures all at the same time.
My Sept. 16th workshop will focus on women, money and retirement planning. My working title? "You Can't Bag Groceries When You're 90." I will take those attending through a five-step process to plan a successful transition to retirement.
Johnson returns Oct. 21 for her workshop on Healthy Habits for Women. During this session, she will discuss how to be a strong healthy woman through wise fitness, eating, sleep and attitude choices.
To register for any or all of the free workshops please contact Ginny Gronwoldt at or by calling 360-256-2174.

Umpqua Bank, headquartered in Roseburg, Ore., is a subsidiary of Umpqua Holdings Corporation and has 184 locations in four states. I am pleased that Umpqua is reaching out to women with this series.
See you there.
