What's New - update from Executive Director

Well, I'm back from my annual vacation, this year spending it with friends and family in Germany and Switzerland. Though the weather wasn't the best - sun, rain, fog, wind, snow - we nevertheless enjoyed the "Kuchen" (cake) with relatives, hikes through the alpine forests and local specialties that brought back culinary memories. While the time together was (always) too short, it is nice to be back home.

Arriving at my house, I was quickly challenged with the prospects of a power outage and preparations. The messages on my voicemail were from PG&E, explaining the probability of a blackout.

Who Knew?

Beauty and the Ostrich

David Albert

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. 

Here’s a fun one from Marin Villages donor David Albert

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.

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:
