SF Senior Beat Has A  New  Website! 
We just launched the 'Senior Beat' with  a desire to better reflect the lives of older adults in general, and San Francisco specifically.

Now, the Senior Beat has its own website,  sfseniorbeat.com

Right now, we have three reporters writing neighborhood news, senior profiles, general interest pieces, and columns.

A Simply Idea with a Profound Affect - Try It! 
Once a month, Judy Tom makes a big batch of soup and invites her neighbors to bring an empty bowl, something to share, and join in a healthy meal and conversation. Ann Williams, St. Francis Square CLC member pictured here, looks ready to enjoy this healthy and hearty meal. Judy was recognized at CLC's Good Neighbor Event in the spring. Any good cooks reading this? Think about starting a monthly "bring your own bowl" event in your community. Learn more about our "Good Neighbors" on our Facebook page.

There was also a mini-celebration to say Happy Birthday to Beverly Taylor.
