September 10.  Welcome, to this week's newsletter.  Last week's survey suggestion on how much you expect to get in retirement income was terrific, generating almost 1500 responses. Thanks to all who participated!
Payson is situated near the Mogollon Rim, a 7,000 foot high, 200-mile long escarpment in north-central Arizona.  Outdoor activities get top billing in this small town.
The results from last week's retirement income expectations were full of contrasts. On the one hand, many of you expect to have significant income and retirement assets. On the other hand, less than 50% expect to be able to maintain your pre-retirement lifestyle.
Out in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in western NC you will find the nice little town of Morganton. People love the downtown with its shops and restaurants. There is  a community college too.
If you would like to take a trip into those thrilling days of yesterday, check out this 1961 promotional video from Sun City. Widely credited as the first active adult community, this video shows why it was so successful.
