President’s Message … Margaret Schieck

Happy 247th Birthday to The United States of America as of July 4th, 2023. It is the longest continuing democracy in the world, quite an achievement!

July 26th marks the 33rd anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990.  It still amazes me that people with disabilities have only had basic Civil Rights, such as access to housing, education and public buildings, etc. for only 33 years.

On another note, on a recent National AARP zoom presentation call, physicians were mentioning that as we get older our internal thermostats don’t react as quickly as they once did, so on these hot days it is important that we stay hydrated.  Keep taking drinks before you actually feel thirsty.

Our July program will feature a speaker from the Santa Clara County Fire Department.  The Program is on Safety at Home for Seniors, especially on Fall Prevention.  Feel free to bring a friend. This is an important issue for all of us. Visitors are always welcome.

The next glasses sorting event with the Lions Club will be on Saturday, July 29th, at the VISTA Center at 101 North Bascom Ave., near San Carlos St.  The event lasts from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.  Lunch is included.

Please remember that we have a Suggestion Box at each meeting.  If there is a particular topic that you would like us to explore, feel free to use the suggestion box.  If you have contact information for a particular speaker, include that with your suggestion.

Have a happy and safe Independence Day!  See you at the July 18th General Meeting. 

One big test for the road

When one chooses to commit, providence appears. That which needs to be accomplished becomes obvious. The next right action appears.

what there is to do first is to be willing, willing to commit, willing to be greater than you know yourself to be.
