Director's Monthly Message

     I was privileged to camp on the beach of the Pacific Ocean. Now I have to admit that after 30 years of tent camping and then camping in an RV, there's no going back. Camping to me now is residing in a comfortable recreational vehicle. Well, why not?

     The weather cooperated fully. We couldn't have planned that any better. Sun, sun and more sun. A bit of a breeze, but not even close to a gale.

      We caught live crabs in our pots only to have them run/swim away - twice!  Good thing for stores and restaurants.  Before any one gets too critical, I was on vacation.  It felt wonderful.  I recommend it to everyone.

      Go see what's practically next door.  No worries of planes being cancelled, standing in long lines, lost luggage, or cramped seating.  Within approximately 100 miles of where we live are beaches, mountains, deserts, world known bridges, museums, cities, small towns, historic mining towns, railroad museums, camping, hiking.  A little further is gambling.  Disneyland, movie studios, caves. The list is lengthy....

 Don't simply sit around.... EXPLORE!

     The response to our request for more Meals on Wheels  drivers was a success. 

     We, of course, can always use more drivers in order to have substitutions for our “regulars” when out on sick leave or vacation. If you are interested in filling in, please call Lori or Tessie (987-3113) to ask about training for “just in case”.
