Life after work
Finding community in Retired Men’s Clubs
After retirement, men and women get involved in a variety of activities, whether it’s joining book clubs, volunteering for charities, playing golf, or traveling. But some men also join what are known as “retired men’s clubs.’’ These men pay a small fee - usually less than $50 a year - that entitles them to meet up for coffee, card games, day trips, and meetings with guest speakers. There are “retired women’s clubs’’ scattered around the country, but not nearly as many.
