WALKER — Storm season in Minnesota is always around the corner and the unexpected can happen. People try to plan ahead and like a good Scout “Be Prepared."

The same goes for aging. Preparing can make life’s transitions or an emergency less stressful for everyone.

Theresa Eclov, executive director of Faith in Action for Cass County, will host “Preparing for the Aging Storm” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 18, in the Walker-Hackensack-Akeley School Double Study Hall.

This WHA Community Education course is free; however, participants should register with Community Education to ensure there are enough materials for everyone.

Planning ahead for retirement and beyond can greatly affect the quality of life going forward. Participants will learn about basic tools to have in place, who they can call upon and how to be prepared for emergencies to better cope with crises and make decisions while getting older and living longer.


This class will introduce the local resources available to lend support. There will be time for questions, sharing and discussion.

At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
