I am one of 10 children. My mother ( in her later years) wanted to stay connected with all of us the best way she could, so she would hand write letters on copy paper, make 10 copies, afterwards she would write a personalized note at the bottom of each respective letters .
The letters would start out by saying "Welcome to the Visit By The Mailbox...Glad you came". In the letters there were NO hidden agendas, NO sales pitches, No judgment... only encouraging words, bible verses, poetry that my dad wrote, etc. I took the letters for granted, and hence have several unopened letters. The letters that I did open, I perused thru quickly, and didn't really take to heart. She passed away in 2008, and I am waiting for the right time to open the unopened letters and hear what she had to say years ago. I can't help to feel that what she wrote back then will be applicable to my life today. She left a legacy, and I can't help but carry the torch.
My desire for the Visit By The Mailbox Series is that you learn from the educational information that our expert panelist and sponsors have to offer. We are here to Empower, Educate & Equip you for what you are and/or will be going through.
Our yearlong series offers a different topic each month that will help in planning your retirement the way you want it to look. They are held the first Tuesday, and the 2nd Thursday of each month. They are held at 2 different venues in Metro Tulsa for logistics. We have partnered with businesses and organizations whose sponsorships make it possible for us to offer the events FREE to 55+ Seniors and their Adult children who are the caregivers.
Our mission is to Empower, Educate & Equip you and your family BEFORE a catalyst happens . Helping you remain in control, while leaving a legacy. Through Visit By The Mailbox Series, we understand that it is critical that we partner with like-minded sponsors and vendors who have the best interest of the attendees at heart. Our goal is to always educate, equip and empower for those late in life transitions.

Absolutely not. No sales pitch. You will have an opportunity to get to know the presenters, panelists, and hosts and can decide for yourself if it makes sense to request their services or products. Presenters and speakers may have materials available for you to take home, but it’s up to you to pick them up if you want them.
HOW LONG IS THE SEMINAR?
Most of our expert panel discussions are about 60 minutes. Some run longer than others depending on the depth of the topic and the number of panelists. Any remaining time is used to address questions from attendees. We begin promptly at 10:00 am and finish no later than 11:30 am.
Please feel free to contact us concerning questions you may have about downsizing, senior living options, 55+ neighborhoods, or other related topics. If our staff is unable to answer your questions, we will direct you to one of our many subject matter experts who will be happy to assist you.
Yes! We want you to get your questions answered. Keep in mind that because we do our homework, many of your questions will likely be answered throughout the prepared panel discussion. If you still have an unanswered question at the end, you will have an opportunity to ask. We do request that if you have a specific question that is personal in nature (i.e. can’t be generalized to the group) that you request a consultation with one of our team members following the event.
We always welcome service providers and business owners seeking to learn more about serving mature homeowners. If you attend WITH a registered client, there is no fee for you to attend. The fee for business owners and aging services professionals not attending with a client is $25 payable at the door. Do to limited seating, we reserve the right to provide priority seating to non-professionals.
Absolutely! We want to make the Visit By The Mailbox Series as meaningful and relevant as possible, so we welcome your suggestions and ideas. Naturally, we prepare the topics for the series well in advance, so be patient concerning time frames for your suggested topic to hit the calendar.
We welcome anyone who believes the information would be valuable to them. If you are not a senior, but you are seeking information to advise someone who is — or maybe you are planning ahead — please join us.
The professionals hosting, moderating, sponsoring, and serving as panelists have strong convictions about ensuring that people are educated, empowered, and equipped as they prepare for late-life issues, especially where and how they will live.
