In October, the Haight Ashbury Seniors Group held their fourth meeting at the Park Branch library community room. Scheduled for 6pm every 3rd Tuesday, the group led by longtime resident Cosi Fabian has been targeting all local seniors “aging in place.”
With an estimated 3000 seniors living in the 94117 zip code, and yet no Senior Center with activities targeting the partially- or fully-retired, the group has already organized a number of activities including lectures, crafts & games, and exercise classes starting with a weekly Monday morning yoga meetup.
Ron Jones, a professional storyteller, both entertained and educated the group at the last meeting on the variety of forms that a well-crafted story might take. At the group’s November 15th meeting Haight-Ashbury resident and New York Times bestselling author Laura Fraser will give a brief lecture on writing a memoir.
