AgeLess

The idea of growing older may worry some, but there's no reason it should. Methodist Fremont Health's FREE AgeLess Program is here for you.

The AgeLess Program is free to those age 55+ and members can participate in as many (or as few) programs or opportunities that are of interest.  Methodist Fremont Health hosts educational programs on the third Wednesday of each month for our AgeLess members.  They start at 8:30 am and are held at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1440 E Military in Fremont.  The program includes breakfast and a program with subject matter experts of all kinds.  Please see monthly meeting dates and topics below.

We also coordinate AgeLess trips. They have been day trips and/or part of an evening for a Christmas light tour.  There is a minimal cost for the trips, to cover the cost of transportation, any entrance fees and meals.  We will also attend at least 2 Midland University sporting events each fall and winter and a Moos Baseball Game in the spring and summer. Information about our upcoming trips will be available soon.
