Join Me to Support a Community Gem: The Rianda House

READY. SET. GIVE!

As we celebrate Older Americans Month, it is a perfect time for our Rianda House fundraiser, Rally4Rianda. This month, in particular, we take the opportunity to thank and recognize the enormous contributions our seniors have made to our nation — they’ve made it stronger through their experience, knowledge, and willingness to share with others. We are blessed to have them and to be able to learn from their wisdom.

I invite you to support the Rianda House with me. I firmly believe that taking care of our parents’ and grandparents’ generations is a core part of building our community. A donation of any size will help bring life to older adults right here at home.

Rianda House provides physical, social, and cultural activities and services for seniors that improve their lives. Last year, 876 older adults, ranging from 50 to 100 years young, participated in the Rianda House’s classes and activities, including:
•    Fit for Life exercise classes to maintain balance and strength.
•    Care Giver support groups and resources.
•    Life Long Learning, including art, current events, and brain-fitness classes.
•    Satellite health and wellness programming in Calistoga.
Consider giving this year through their Online Giving Campaign, which runs through May. Any size donation makes a difference and is 100% tax deductible.

“There is a fountain of youth: it is in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of others.  When you tap into this source, you will truly have defeated age.”  — Sophia Loren
