I love to tell my "Marin Villages" stories to family and friends. Like the time I ran into a volunteer at the DMV and, in the course of our brief conversation, realized that she epitomized our mission. Over the past few years, she (and her family) has developed a real friendship with a member who lives close by. They now have dinners together, check in to see if everyone is o.k. and, appreciate the joy this member brings to her family. Neighbors helping neighbors.
And then there are the fun activities happening monthly. (click above for full update)
Beauty and the Ostrich
Everybody who travels comes home with adventure stories. Usually accompanied by too many photos on their Smart phones. How many times have you been shown the Eiffel Tower? Try to look impressed at The London Bridge? Smile at yet another shot of the Great Wall of China? So when someone really has a unique travel tale, it’s worth listening.
And what about you? Come on, sign up, share with all of us at Marin Villages. All you have to do is talk. We’ll come to you, or you come to us.
Thank you to our fabulous sponsors showing support for our 10th Anniversary:
The Impact of Marin Villages
One of our dearest members, Vivienne, explains the impact Marin Villages had on her life and well-being. Vivienne passed away peacefully in her home, with her cat at hand - just as she had hoped. This video was created shortly after Vivienne had been diagnosed:
