 Issue 45: March 2015




NEWS!! YEI will have a new website as from April 2015. Our readers who access the website via their devices will be pleased to hear that the new website will be
i-Pad and mobile friendly. More news next time..

It was good to meet so many YEI readers at the very first Cape Retirement and Lifestyle Expo 2015! Hopefully, we will see even more of you at the next Expo – it really was worthwhile, and the talks were excellent!

We have noticed a need for information about voluntary work, and so we have included this as a new category in the YEI Directory. The first organization that we have featured in this section is Marsh Memorial Homes – we invite you to take a look..

Tsogo Sun’s unbeatable Durban Holiday Offer comes to an end on
31 March 2015. It is specifically for seniors aged 63+ - we urge you to check this out before the offer expires..

We know that many YEI readers LOVE cruises. We welcome Development Promotions on board who, during the course of the year, will be informing us about all their cruises on offer - this is truly bucket list material and something out of the ordinary.

Gautengers - don’t forget Mediclinic Senior’s luxury retreat taking place in
April 2015 - this comes highly recommended and the benefits of attending are huge! Click here to find out more.. Don’t forget to enter the competition if you would like the opportunity to win a place on the retreat!

If Madam & Eve has made you laugh during the past 21 years, maybe it’s time to give a little something back - for the arts - and for Madam, Eve and Mother Anderson! Take a look..

To end on a fun note - we have FIVE competitions this month. Some great prizes up for grabs! Have a look at our WIN page.

Happy Reading! Until the next time...

Kind regards,

Marilyn and the YEI Team
