Be Cool, Be with It, Be Interested: Take It from a 90-Year-Old

At a luncheon in the Australian Parliament House, 27 nonagenarian women were honored for their community service contributions, including Dorothy Clarke, 90, who said, "I find that being active in the community helps me as much as it does others, because it makes me feel like I am contributing something." That's a sentiment shared by many of the other women, who feel that their engagement with the community has kept them going. With all the worthwhile projects this group undertakes--from knitting clothes for premature babies to teaching computer courses--these nonagenarians are getting a lot of mileage out of their later years.
