April is here at San Clemente Villas! Check out our April Newsletter to see what is happening this month!
In Abundance of Optimism
We are publishing our April Newsletter. We are doing the best we can to keep our precious seniors safe at this time. Life goes on at the Villas and all around us. Our thinking is that it would be much easier to let our entertainers, vendors, residents and family know that plans must be cancelled, than to not have prepared any plans at all. Hence, our April Calendar. However, we pray, and hope our prayers are heard, that COVID-19 will disappear as quickly as it came. Please join us in those prayers, and watch for updates as our Executive Director sends out text message notices.

We do celebrate anyone turning 100 in an extra special way, for example with special write ups, a cake at their table and even champagne! Should we all be so lucky to reach 100! Join in on wishing residents a Happy Birthday – and many more!!

Classic Senior Ladies
Fridays @ 9 a.m. in the Theater
Led by Louise B & Morgan M. This group gets together to talk about life. Members share their week. A topic of discussion is presented and everyone contributes their feelings and experiences pertaining to the topic. They celebrate birthdays and periodically go out to lunch together. It’s a “tight knit” group, and a kind of “sisterhood”. Louise is well-known to the Villas as an RN and a helper to seniors. Morgan is a young San Clemente gal that has loved visiting the group and has now become a regular. Looking for new members! Come check us out!
