Amazing Attributes of Aging lifts up a unique story of 36 women who graduated from high school in 1958 and formed the Blue Garter Gang. They rebounded to celebrate bridal showers and weddings and the gift of a blue garter. Today 28 of them stay connected from all over the United States. Annual gatherings recreate more fun than anyone can imagine for enjoying over 50 years of friendship. Contents include a dictionary of aging women’s identities, the amazing stories of accomplishments of ordinary small town women, reunion potluck recipes, and a rich bibliography focused on aging women. Their stories are an inspiration to women, young and older.

An aging woman is a keepsake who holds the secrets to healthy and satisfying living. Friendships are to be cherished; they nurture our souls and last forever.

My sociology friend exclaimed, “What a find!” when learning about the Blue Garter friends. It is great to discover validation from many humans--not just a Pomeranian puppy!
