CALLING WOMEN 50+ IN THE CENTRAL OHIO AREA

Please know that we are here for you! There are many ways we can keep ourselves from feeling alone and confused. Most of our Peer Groups and our Special Interest Groups are meeting virtually. We have begun new forums for sharing and laughing together such as our coffee and cocktail hours. Please look at our calendar and join us!!

Sex Trafficking: A Problem of Pandemic Proportions
Sex Trafficking: A Problem of Pandemic ProportionsIf you thought sex trafficking would diminish with pandemic shutdowns, think again. With more folks stuck at home, online trafficking has skyrocketed and placed our youth at even greater risk than before.
Do you know the red flags that signal someone in your family or circle of young friends may be at risk? What sort of privacy safeguards need to be in place for photos they share on social media like Instagram and TikTok? And do these safeguards always work?
Amy Ryan Rued, a trained volunteer ambassador for Shared Hope International and regional coordinator for Ohio, will speak at our monthly Zoom meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, March 15. Feel free to invite a guest who might benefit from the information she has to share.

For our January 18 program, the Central Ohio Chapter members contributed real-life wisdom during interactive breakout sessions where all of us shared challenges past and present and how we got through them.Read more...

TTN Central Ohio November 16 Virtual Program - The Writers Group Presents -How Has the Pandemic Affe
Since the shutdown in March caused by Covid 19, all of our lives have changed in so many different ways.
We've been left with the question of whether we'll ever be able to return to "normal" and what "normal" might even look like in the future.
In June, members of the Central Ohio TTN Writers Special Interest Group each wrote about how the pandemic had affected their lives, and it seemed appropriate for our November chapter meeting to bring our thoughts to the entire membership.
On November 16 at 6pm, join us virtually on Zoom for readings by the Writers Group members and for your opportunity to write your thoughts about how Covid 19 has affected your life as well.
This is usually a favorite event of our members, and we hope you will join us!
Once you register, you will be sent a link to login to the Zoom meeting.
You must sign up here to attend...
