We have received interest in adding the game of Chess to our weekly Activities programming. Before we proceed, we would like to gather a count of those who are interested in participating either through instructed classes or simply playing with friends. A sign-up sheet is available in the Mail Room. Please call Melissa at # 8087 or Claudia at # 8676, for further information. 


Invitations to the Birthday Luncheon on Wednesday, April 4, to all residents who have birthdays in either March or April, will be sent out in the coming days. If you don’t receive your invitation by next week, please call Melissa at # 8087. 


Join us Sunday, April 29 through Friday, May 4, for our Northern California Adventure, where the focus of our journey will be to visit The Terraces Winery, the home-away-from-home of Casa residents Timm and Peggy Crull. While at the winery we’ll be treated to a fabulous country lunch and wine tasting, inspired and created by the Crulls’ and their children. On our second day in the wine country, we’ll take a day-trip to the town of Healdsburg. You’ll also have two nights free to arrange your own dinner at some of the highly rated restaurants in town, including The French Laundry, Mustards Grill, Ad Hoc, Brix and more. Then we’re off to beautiful Monterey for a two-night’s stay at Hotel Intercontinental: The Clement, which is located steps from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If a little getaway to the country and the shore appeal to you, please contact Melissa at # 8087 for further information.


As some of you have expressed interest in private lessons on tech devices, we are happy to say that we can now offer these to Casa residents.

Please contact Melissa at # 8087, or Claudia at # 8676, if you would like to get in touch with Dory for rates and scheduling times.
