Thought to Ponder

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it. This is so true. I love to hear them say “You don’t look that old.”

New Water Restrictions

Thank you, San José, for doing a great job saving water. Beginning July 1,2016, San José’s water conservation target will ease from 30 percent to 20 percent. With residents and businesses conserving water, and this past winter’s rainfall, San José’s water supplies have improved. Let’s continue to make our water conservation a lasting habit. Follow these outdoor water use rules this summer:

1) Water when it’s coolest – Water outdoors before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m. when using a hand-held hose with automatic shut-off nozzle or a drip irrigation system.

2) If using a sprinkler system, watering hours are the same, but there are designated days: • Odd numbered addresses may water on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays • Even numbered addresses may water on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

3) Water efficiently – Don’t let water flow into gutters or streets.

4) Sweep sidewalks and driveways instead of hosing off with water.

Please join me on this great trip, September 27 to Oct 2, 2016, to Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sedona, GRAND CANYON, Oak Creek Canyon, Pink Jeep Tour, with many, many other sights and museums all included. Of course, Talbot’s extras are included: home pickup and airport transfers, tour manager, hotels, many meals, baggage handling, all taxes, and gratuities for all service. Flyers will be available at the tour table and attached to e-mail addressees. Sign up in July and receive a certificate worth $50 per couple and $25 per single. You can also call me to receive a copy in advance of the meeting. I’ve always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I NEED A ROOMMATE!

Fund Raiser…Marlene Hruby

We’re having a fundraiser on Tuesday July 19th after our meeting from 11:30 and for the rest of the day at the Rock Bottom Brewery in the Pruneyard. Those arriving from the meeting will be seated together. After 12:30 it’s regular seating. Bring your family and friends and identify yourselves as AARP diners with coupon below (cut it out) and which will be available at the tour table. Guys, It’s a brewery! RBB said they would honor the coupon from anyone; so if you need more, call or e-mail me.



TUESDAY JULY 19 11:30 AM TO 9:00 PM



(Happy Hour not included in fund raising)

Community Service…Sheila Gold

Calling all AARP members who attended school–yes, that means all of you. Please donate school necessities and/or cash to the Sacred Heart Backpack Drive and brighten the day for deserving youngsters. Besides the normal school items, there is a special need for NEW backpacks (no red or blue!), scientific calculators, safety scissors, USB flash drives, hand sanitizer, tissues, and $20 shoe gift certificates. Check with the store manager and tell him why you are buying school items and he/she may give you a teacher’s discount! Items must be collected this month. Brownie points for those who buy lemonade from a kid’s lemonade stand — it’s all about passing on a good feeling to our fellow citizens no matter their age.
