OAKLEY -- Kansas State Research and Extension, the Northwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging, Fort Hays State University and the Kansas Humanities Council will host "Bucket Lists and Looking Back: What was Worth the Work?" at 12:15 p.m. Friday at Gateway Fellowship Church Impact Center in Oakley.

Karen Ridder will lead the presentation.

Contact your local Extension office or Diann Gerstner at Thomas County Extension at (785) 460-4582 for registration information.

"Bucket lists" are wish lists of accomplishments people hope to do before they die, or "kick the bucket." Ridder will share and discuss interviews with Kansans living past their 95th year as they reflect on where they worked, why they worked and what work they have continued through the years. What life goals will you look back on and believe were the best work for your life?

Ridder is a freelance journalist and a regular blogger for the official Kansas travel and tourism blog at Travelks.com. She enjoys researching and telling the stories that inform our sense of who we are.

"We get a lot of freedom in our lives to choose our work and the things we work toward, but do you ever stop to wonder what will really seem worth the effort at the end of the day?" Ridder said. "This is a chance to hear the stories of others who have been there."

"Bucket Lists and Looking Back: What Was Worth the Work?" is part of the Kansas Humanities Council's the Way We Worked Speakers Bureau.
