Roselio Muniz 101 Lifelong Leaner

Here is a link to a video showing how Roselio Muniz (101) spends his day. Apart from what he has to teach us, Can we notice that he is a perfect example of Lifelong Learner? I thank Justice Rangarajan for this interesting alert.

Roselio Muniz is 101 years old and he's sharing the daily activities and choices he believes are responsible for not only getting him to this point but have allowed him to continue to live a life of vitality and passion. 
Whether it's getting a knee replaced at 92 or cycling several miles a day, see why life as a centenarian can be more fulfilling, exciting and vibrant than you ever imagined. 
Roselio believes it's not just his physical health that's kept him strong for so long. He explains why it's so important to him to keep learning, to enjoy time with his family, to spend time daily focusing on his faith and to practice forgiveness. Long after you watch this story, you'll remember this charming and inspirational Rock Star of Aging™.

Bolton pensioners love life and learning

A BOLTON group is hoping to reach out to new members as it hits 25 years old.

For more than two decades the University of the Third Age (U3A) has been bringing together retired and semi-retired people to learn together — not for qualifications, but for the joy of discovery.

While the word 'university' can appear daunting, the group is hoping to refresh its image in 2017 and reach out to more people.

Chairman Tony Pearson said: "It's an increasingly important group in the local community. Membership has been steadily increasing.

"Retired people taking matters into their own hands with a remit of lifelong learning and friendly recreational activities. Learn, Laugh, Live is our motto!

"For some people it's difficult to find activities, it depends on how outgoing an individual is.

"A lot of our members were alone and come to U3A after suffering a bereavement. Life has changed and they want to get back out there and meet people.

"We feel a lot of people in Bolton probably don't know enough about us and have never considered joining. We would love to get our message out there to more sectors of the community."

U3A is a national charity which was established in 1987 and the Bolton branch came along four years later.

It currently has 360 members but hopes to build up to at least 400 this year.

The group meets on the last Friday of every month and runs different activities throughout the year.

These can be anything from cultural visits, quizzes, quilting, music class and crafts to indoor bowls, lessons in Mandarin or classics, philosophy, photography, creative writing and rambling.

Mr Pearson added: "For a lot of people it is an absolute lifeline.

"They have a good time, keep their mind active, meet people, make new friends and be part of something.

"The idea is you are never to old to learn something new. When you reach retirement age you don't have to give up, it's quite the opposite. Get involved, keep your mind active."

The first meeting of 2017 for the Bolton U3A will take place on January 27 at St Andrew and St George Church in St George's Road, Bolton.
