Evan and Sherma Riggs will share their experiences on keeping young in their 80s. Humor helps keep us young so we thought this could give you some laughs and some thoughts on “Keeping Your Hearts Young!” Holly Conger will perform two entertaining songs: “Keep Your Heart Young” and “The Older I Get.”
