Wellington resident Roger A. Gross has been giving presentations to country clubs, assisted living facilities and senior living facilities in the Palm Beach County area.
Gross served with honor for 42 years in the federal government with law enforcement, security and management experience. He settled in Wellington with his wife in 2019, a retired ICU charge nurse from Wellington Regional Medical Center.
Gross has many behind-the-scenes stories from his employment and from history. His master’s degree in education, minor in history and his years of dedicated service allow him to merge these topics. He uncovers fascinating tidbits and topics to present and entertain his audiences.
Highlights of his presentations involve working security with several presidents of the United States, senators, representatives, celebrities and actors, as well as his connections to historical events.
Seniors love his presentation about the U.S. Treasury and how money is made. When he advises that currency paper is not paper, people are amazed. When speaking of gold dollars and coins during President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s presidency, several audience members remember those times.
Many recall silver dollars that were given to them at Christmas or Chanukah. Several seniors, some in their 90s, recall receiving them as children, bringing back memories of their families and their past at joyous times. Some have said they still have them.
Gross is able to fill in on short notice or develop a presentation for any group. If you are interested in having him give a presentation, he can be reached at email@example.com for references, rates and availability.
