We are proud and ecstatic to announce that our Dragons have now officially culminated from ONEgeneration. The culmination took place on Wednesday, June 9th with over 80 families who watched through tears of joy as our little ones performed various songs and recited poems about kindergarten readiness. The culmination celebration continued outside on patio with dinner for all. We are proud of our Dragons and are confident that we have set the foundation for our children to become successful future leaders. We want to thank all of our parents for trusting us with their precious children and allowing us to be a part of their lives.

Encino Farmers Market
The 4th of July is around the corner so make sure you stop by the Farmers Market July 2nd to pick up all your goodies and grass-fed beef for those BBQ’s and pool parties.  Stone fruits like peaches, plums, & nectarines are loaded with vitamins and the most delicious now.   Underwood’s famous sweet corn is in the market but come early because it sells out quickly. Help us welcome our new food vendor “Jessie’s Chicken.”  The recipe for their wonderful chicken has been passed down through three generations.  See you Sunday!

Lots of free parking

We accept SNAP/EBT & WIC!

Dr. David Stern's Expert Corner
This month, I will begin a discussion of diabetes, a disease that prevents the body from making use of the energy from food. The illness is a disease of the pancreas, the organ that produces the hormone insulin. To make energy, the cells of the body need food in a very simple form. When we eat or drink, much of the food is broken down into a simple sugar called glucose. Glucose provides the energy our bodies need for daily activities.  It is insulin that serves as the helper that enables the glucose to enter the cells where it can be used.   Diabetes is one of the most common medical conditions in older persons. More than 25% of the U. S. population over age 65 has diabetes. Another way of looking at this is to know that more than half of people with diabetes are over the age of 65.  

In older patients, diabetes often has an atypical presentation; as a result, it is frequently under diagnosed and left untreated. Young patients present with excessive thirst, urinary frequency, and unusual hunger. The presentation in older patients may include dehydration, poor appetite, weight loss, confusion, impaired vision, urinary incontinence.   Serious long-term complications of the disease include cardiovascular disease, stroke, blindness, peripheral neuropathy, chronic kidney disease, and foot ulcers. Efficient and aggressive management can dramatically reduce the many complications associated with diabetes.   In next month’s column, I will provide more information about the illness.

Silver Sneakers was at the Senior Enrichment Center on June 19th  with their healthcare partners signing seniors up for their wonderful free fitness program. 
We even had a very special edition of our popular Zumba class that day  with instructor Joanne.  See below for the new weekly Silvers Sneakers class.
Class of the Month:
Unzip Your Lip
Tuesdays 2:40 to 4 pm
Facilitators Ruthie & Sid
Ruthie and Sid are the facilitators for this wonderful discussion group. No matter who is guiding the discussion, you can count on them to be understanding, thoughtful and engaged with the participants.

The idea behind Unzip Your Lip is that group members can express themselves in a safe place without feeling judged. As participants are frequently reminded, what is talked about in here is confidential. A comfort zone is created and when people are comfortable, everybody can share, even if their ideas are different.

July Tributes

In memory of Harry Vickman on the anniversary
of his 99th Birthday

In memory of Barbara Widolf

In memory of United States Veteran Dr. Clinton Tempereau, MD

In memory of Elaine George
Dr. Clinton Tempereau M.D. Remembered
IN LOVING MEMORY of Clinton Tempereau, M.D., who passed away on March 4, 2017 due to natural causes.  A veteran of two wars, he first proudly served his country in the US Navy during World War II.  Later, he was called to serve in the US Air Force during the Korean War, which he did, as a Captain and psychiatrist, bringing US prisoners from Korea to the United States. 

At home in the US, he ran a successful private practice for many years before becoming Chief of Psychiatry at the Grossman Burn Center (formerly located in Sherman Oaks).  He retired from the Burn Center after 25 years of dedicated service helping burn victims work through their trauma and pain. 

He is survived by Hak Jue “Terry” Tempereau, his loving spouse of 63 years, and four children: Kim Howlett, Lynn Jaklevick, Margot Tempereau-Wall and John Tempereau.  He remains in our hearts and will be remembered fondly by all whose lives he touched .

June 8th would have been my dad, Harry Vickman’s 99th birthday.  My dad used to be at the Encino Farmer’s Market every Sunday at 4:30 am firing up the hot dog cart.  (Harry sold hotdogs at the market for 15 years). He also spent every day going from place to place getting people to donate toys and would spend hours in the garage putting them together to sell at the Toy Booth the Farmer’s Market had back then.   He died at 92 years young.  He spent every day out and about doing something for someone else.  NEVER for himself.  He taught me well.  I am an RN and have been for 45 years and get enormous joy in caring for others.  I was blessed to be holding my dad’s hand with my head on his chest when he passed.  He was a great role model for me and I have this picture on my desk.  When things get a little tough, I look at him and think, what would papa do?
