Wholly Crones is a group of friendly “life-experienced women” who meet on the first and third Tuesdays of every month (October – May) at 1:30 pm. Meetings are held in the Micky Lounge at Good Samaritan, 640 N. Eisenhower, in Moscow. Our first meeting this fall will be on Tuesday, October 1. We invite women of the UUCP to join us.

At the first meeting, we will catch up with each other after our summer off, and welcome new women who join us. We will also make plans for what we are interested in discussion. We will explore and discuss a variety of topics such as aging, decision making, women’s issues, current events, medical care in America, and spirituality in the second half of life. An interesting new book, Women Rowing North by by Mary Pipher, may be the basis of some of our discussions. Here ae a few reviews of the book.

“An enlightening look at how women can age joyfully.” – People

“Both practical and inspiring.” – New York Times “Inside the List”

“Full of first-hand anecdotes, the hopeful book doesn’t shield the reader from the realities of aging, but rather delivers thoughtful insight and guidance to help women get more out of their lives and to be happier. This mental makeover is a necessity when you consider our senior population, especially women, is growing faster than you can say 70 is new 60.” – Postmedia

“This is bound to become the bible of baby boomer women.” – Editors’ Picks, Library Journal

“Think of Women Rowing North as a GPS for navigating your later years. And while Pipher, 71, says she wrote it specifically for women crossing from middle age to old age, there is much in the book that is useful for any of us.” – Considerable
