50+ Program Highlights

The 50+ Pop-up Trips and Social Events had everyone smiling last month! They caught the electrifying "Stomp" performance at Gallo Theater for the Arts in Modesto – an international percussion sensation that amazed everyone!

But that's not all—they also had a blast at Da Boccery in Livermore, where they enjoyed tasty appetizers while playing team bocce ball.

This month we will be kicking off the baseball season with a trip to see the SF Giants in action.

Then, in May, we are heading to Safari West in Santa Rosa!

To learn more about these and other upcoming Pop-Up Trips, join our Pop-Up Trip Email list.
