The Elephant in the Room: Difficult Talks We All Should Have Presenter: Katie O’Donnell, MS, CMC, Eldercare Services As we approach 65+ years old, some sensitive conversations need to take place to secure the life you envision for your later years. It’s your life and its quality should be based on your values. Learn how to have the “difficult” conversations with ourselves, our children and spouses regarding real and imagined challenges that we may encounter after 65. These dialogues will give you peace of mind to go about life without “The Elephant in the Room!” Some of the topics Katie will discuss are: how to have the conversation about keeping or selling the family home, what about re-marriage and blended families, future health considerations and when is it time to stop driving.

Nike Missile Site

Senior Trips

Meet at the Hacienda de las Flores, 2100 Donald Dr., Moraga

During the tense years of the Cold War, the United States Army built and operated close to 300 Nike missile sites in the United States. These sites were designed as the last line of defense against Soviet bombers. Today, a dedicated group of volunteers works in partnership with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area on the continuous task of restoration at site SF-88L, the only fully restored Nike missile site in the country. This museum is an enduring reminder of the Cold War and allows visitors to reflect upon the realities of the Cold War and their influence on today’s society. Your knowledgeable volunteer guide will tell you about the history and the amazing building of the Nike Missile, how they arrived, assembled and stored. This tour will involve some light walking (no hills, some steps) to various outbuildings on the site. A boxed lunch will be provided to enjoy after the tour in the picnic areas at the site.
