When Barbara Lane and her husband relocated to the Berkshires from New York City, they didn’t envision a traditional retirement.
“Ed and I have never seen ourselves as they kind of people who will move down to the warm weather and play bridge and tennis for the rest of our lives,” Lane said. “That was never going to work for us.”
Lane sought out local classes for older adults at Berkshire Community College. Her husband, Ed, separately pursued his master’s in business administration.
