President’s Message … Margaret Schieck

HAPPY 246th BIRTHDAY to the United States of America!  I hope you enjoyed the holiday.

July is “BRING A FRIEND” month for the Campbell Area Chapter of AARP.  Please invite someone to come to our meeting along with you, or separately. A guest does not pay for membership dues until they have attended 3 free meetings.  Of course, guests may also join at any meeting.  One does not have to be a Campbell resident to come to our meetings. “Campbell Area” includes San Jose, Milpitas, Saratoga, Los Gatos, Cupertino and Santa Clara as well as Campbell.  Coffee time is at 9:15 am and the speaker starts at 10:00 a.m.  The July meeting will take place on July 19th in Room Q80 of the Campbell Community Center, 1 West Campbell Ave. in Campbell.  As you enter the Center’s driveway, there is a large parking lot on the left, very close to our meeting room, Q80.

Last month, I mentioned the Senior Safari walks at Happy Hollow Park and Zoo.  Parking and Admission are free if you arrive before 10:00 a.m.  The senior walks take place on the 4th Thursday of the month through October.  Also, for a senior discount rate of $10.00, there are docent-led walks through History San Jose from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. every Thursday for the summer months.  Both venues are located in Kelly Park in San Jose.

Many thanks to all of the AARP Chapter members who came to Angie Jaggars Memorial Service.  It was well attended.
