Coping with Life Transitions
Tuesday January 17 the Care Committee is co-sponsoring the presentation: “Coping with Life Transitions”. This presentation can help Villagers learn more about the valuable programs for seniors available at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital.
Light refreshments will be served. RSVP with Missy at the VMC, or on-line.
Working Toward an Age Friendly Tierrasanta
As we Tierrasanta residents age and look to remain healthy and independent, we need to know that our community will be safe and supportive for us. The County of San Diego recently joined the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, which brings with it a 5-year commitment to plan and implement activities that will better support older adults and others as they age. As part of this effort, the Tierrasanta Community Council and the Tierrasanta Village are sponsoring a public feedback session that will be conducted by the County of San Diego’s Aging & Independence Services (AIS). This will be a chance for us to give our input into our needs for healthy aging in Tierrasanta and throughout the county.
The interactive meeting is scheduled for January 25th from 5:30-7:30at the Tierrasanta Recreation Center 11220 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
Please RSVP to http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AgeWell1617. Refreshments will be served.

Annual Donor Drive A Smash Success!
A tremendous thanks to all who donated and helped us exceed our $20,000 goal! The Board and Fund Development Core Team are delighted with the response to our appeal for contributions. The old-adage “It takes a Village” is so true.
For those who like statistics, here are the results of the Annual Donor Drive:
- 41 Donations Received
- 51 Members Donated (Some Members Donated as a Couple)
- 1 Non-member Donated
- 47% of Members Donated
The Annual Donor Drive will remain open until January 30, 2017, if you still want to make a contribution.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them.” John F. Kennedy
It’s Not Too Early!
Village Historian Trish Newbill wants to remind everyone that plans are being formulated for celebrating the TVSD Tenth Anniversary, coming up early in 2018! Your input is being solicited for ideas on the best way to memorialize this milestone. Also very useful would be documents, photos and mementos related to the early days of the Village, and testimonials about just what the Village means to you.
Please contact Trish if you have any of the above to offer, or can help her put this project together!
Annual Holiday Party A Smash Success!
For the few of you that did not attend (92 members did make it!), the Holiday Party Committee outdid themselves with another year of fantastic music and dining. As usual Ace Photographer Mike Rigdon was on the scene, capturing all the fun.
