2012/09/05 Seniors’ Choice

Caryn Leventhal of Seniors’ Choice Professional Handyman Services gave us a thought provoking presentation on how we can improve our home environment for safety and livability. As we age many aspects of our homes can present dangers that we many not appreciate. Her company will survey the home and make simple suggestions that will make it possible to stay in our own home as we age.

8/15/2012 Oceanside History

Kristi Hawthorne gave us a very interesting presentation on the history of Oceanside. Having lived here for 20 years it was good to learn more about the town. It is a shame that some of the old buildings have not survived.

Quotes for August 8th

Bob Reinseth, to Jodi Coe:

“Here, let me take that away from you”!

Pat Patrick:

“BOOM!!”

Pat’s annual homage to the Hiroshima atomic bomb event, this time with a reference to how the “Tokyo Rotary Club” then changed their name to “The Wednesday Club” for the duration of World War II.
