5 Great Clubs You Can Join To Liven Up Your Retirement

Work is a funny thing. We spend all of our lives wishing we could get out of it, but when we do, we're not quite sure what to do with ourselves. After 50 or 60 years of dreading Mondays, we're left stressing out over what to do now that we're no longer seeking employment. But, life is not over – not by a long shot. In fact, people call these the golden years for good reason; you can finally spend time enjoying yourself. The key to enjoying your retirement is to fill your day with fun activities and good friends. You can find both in spades at the right club.


So, without further ado, here are five great clubs you can join to liven up your retirement.


5. Lions Club


If the idea of helping others in your free time sounds good to you, you might benefit from a Lions Club membership. The Lions Club offers the framework for volunteers around the globe to help support their local community.


4. Beer of the Month Clubs

Are you more than just a casual beer fan? If so, a beer of the month club might be a club for you to join. Especially during the fall football season, few things are as satisfying as a cold beer and the big game in your favorite chair. This club will take the guesswork out of trying new beers that might not fit your palette. True professionals hand select each beer with loving care. Some great clubs require minimal effort and yield maximum reward.


3. Book Clubs


Book clubs are perfect clubs for retirees for many reasons. First, they offer the opportunity for socialization. Second, they give you something to do when you're not socializing. Relaxing with a great book is an excellent way to pass the time and keep your mind nimble.


2. Potluck Clubs


Retirees who love to cook, and those who love to eat, can benefit from joining a potluck club. You don't have to be the best cook around; you just have to know how to follow a recipe and enjoy the company of like-minded retirees. If there isn't a potluck club already going strong in your area, feel free to start one.


1. Country Clubs


This is one club that usually comes with a membership fee, but the fee may be well worthwhile if you enjoy golf, tennis or socializing with an elite group of your neighbors. Great clubs aren't necessarily expensive. The best club is one that suits your lifestyle and contains friends with whom you can share a good laugh. When choosing a country club, ask for a day pass, so you can mingle with the folks who spend time there.
