News: Earth Elders and Elders Salon Merge!

The Elders Salon is very excited to make this announcement!

Connie Mahoney, originator of the Earth Elders group, and the Elders Salon have now merged. Connie has done a fabulous job of guiding the Earth Elders group for the past many years and now we see the value of combining forces until the aegis of Transition Sebastopol.

We hope to see many of you at functions originating from both groups. Connie's email announcement gives background information and information about events such as the Earth Elders Film & Discussion free event, usually 3rd Monday afternoon at Two Acre Wood Cohousing. I say "usually" because Connie tells me that the March movie will NOT be shown.

This is a wonderful BIRTHDAY PRESENT for the Elders Salon, as we are hitting our one-year mark this March with the 3/24/11 Salon (6:30-8:30 at Sequoia Village Cohousing). Another announcement/reminder will be sent out with more details approximately 3/21.

The blog address that Connie mentions below is <http://www.elderssalon.blogspot.com>.

The Times they are a Changing! Earth Elders and The Elder Salon are joining ranks.

Yes, change is happening in the elder scene and I think it is great!

Here’s some background information about the two groups:
Earth Elders, was founded in 1998 in Sonoma County to honor aging, elders and Earth. Our (newly-updated) web site is: www.earthelders.org <http://www.earthelders.org/> .

Earth Elders currently hosts a film and discussion event of special interest to elders on the 3rd Monday afternoon each month beginning at 2:30 pm at the Community Room at Two Acre Woods Co-Housing, 700 Robinson Road, Sebastopol. Everyone is invited; everyone is encouraged to suggest DVDs. Guests are welcome; it’s free.

Earth Elders is committed to honoring Earth. From 1999 – 2008 we sponsored an Earth Day Celebration for the City of Sebastopol.
