NEV: Thanksgiving
Lindsey D Oldani
Published on: 11/25/2020
Happy Wednesday Villagers! Below you will find book recommendations, an interactive lands map and a couple of Thanksgiving Day events to keep you connected to your community.

For many of us, the colonial holiday Thanksgiving is a tradition of family and friends coming together. The ongoing pandemic has made it challenging to get together throughout the year and this celebratory season is no different. We know tomorrow will likely look and feel different from many years past, and we would like to invite you to gather with us and others in the community. Gratefully, we are resilient and flexible and are still able to gather here online virtually, and we hope you will join us!

General

Services: Our goal is to protect our community – members and volunteers alike – from this virus. To that end, changes were made to services to limit our members’ and volunteers’ exposure to COVID-19, while continuing to provide as much support as possible. While we are not entering each other’s homes at this time there are many services Villagers can still receive.

Errands for groceries or picking up prescriptions, by either pre ordering or providing a list to the volunteer have eliminated the need for folks to share space.
Garden and yard work or a walk through the neighborhood, while keeping the required 6-foot social distance is happening.

Service Update
For many of us, a neighborhood walk or some time in our garden is a welcome respite from being cooped up indoors. If you'd like a companion on a walk, feel free to request this from the office. You and your walk companion will need to keep the required 6-foot social distance. The same goes for garden volunteers; they'll either work alone or at the required distance from the member. Let's enjoy spring as well as we can!

QUARTERLY MEETING REPORT: Expanding our vision of the village as a community
Published on: 1/3/2020
On Dec 11, over 70 of our members & volunteers gathered for our Quarterly Meeting at the Hollywood Senior Center for a potluck dinner, and to hear a presentation about moving our focus from primarily a service provider to a larger vision as a community of seniors: supporting each other as we age, with an emphasis on growing, educating ourselves on the choices we face, engaging with each other and our larger community, and developing enduring relationships with village volunteers & members.

A short period of lively “table conversations” produced an extensive list of ideas & responses, which will provide a start to a follow-up meeting on January 19 from 2:30-4:00 at the Hollywood Senior Center. At this meeting, we will continue our conversations. We invite all to attend!
