Would you like to learn to play Canasta? If so, I am going to be teaching small groups at no cost. There are new rules, and it is a lot of fun. We'll be meeting on Mondays and Wednesdays, Nov.4 & 6, and 11 & 13, at 1:30 pm in the Bliss Room. If you are interested in joining this group, please sign up in the Mail Room. 


This is the time of the year to express our gratitude to the more than 250 part and full time Casa non-management employees who serve us each and every day — the cooks (including ’The Cookie Man’!), dishwashers, cleaners, servers, support from IT, Life Enrichment, fitness, reception, security, sales, billing, security, as well as the nurses and aides in the Clinic, Personal Care, and Medical Center. 

Please show your appreciation by writing a check today to the “MRA”, noting on the memo line “Appreciation Fund” and leave at Reception. Your contribution will be very, very appreciated by all our wonderful staff! 


Please bring them to Chialee in the Craft Studio or leave them with Reception. Thank you!
