Thoughtfully UD.

Planning a retirement party? Start here.


Retirement is an important milestone in life. Make this moment extra special for a friend or coworker with a celebration that offers an opportunity to express gratitude, reflect upon all of their accomplishments during their career, and wish them well in their future endeavors. 

We can help create a thoughtful send-off.


From a lunch gathering to a big gala to an excursion at the shore, we can help you plan the perfect retirement event. Take the celebration down to the shore and outdoor at the Virden Center where you can turn the event into a weekend. Or, keep it close and fill the expansive lobby at Clayton Conference Center with friends and family. Either way, we can assist you in space and menu selection, plus help you with the theme, games, decorations, and more. Let’s get this event started.
