Women’s Club Luncheon Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 12:00 at the Clubhouse

We are very fortunate to have as our speaker at the March 12 luncheon, the principal investigator of The 90+ Study, Dr. Claudia Kawas, M.D., Professor of Neurobiology & Behavior and Neurology at the University of California, Irvine. Last year many of us watched as Niguel Shores resident and Women’s Club member Ruthy Stahl was interviewed on 60 Minutes as part of its report on The 90+ Study.

People over the age of 90 are now the fastest growing segment of the population, however, little is known about these pioneers of aging. Dr. Kawas will discuss findings from The 90+ Study, a population based sample of more than 1,600 people aged 90+, and share lifestyles and other lessons from individuals in their tenth decade (90-99) and beyond. You won’t want to miss this very interesting and informative presentation.
The Women’s Club luncheon will take place on Thursday, March 12 in the Clubhouse at 12:00 noon. Look for your email invitation on Thursday, March 5. Please RSVP by noon on Sunday, March 8. You will be notified by email if it is your turn to bring a salad for 10-12 people. The cost of the luncheon is $3 for members and $5 for guests.
To acknowledge and celebrate our members who are 89 and older, we are waiving their $3 attendance fee; they also do not need to bring a salad if it is their turn to do so. Please indicate on your email RSVP, or tell your telephone caller, if you qualify for these waivers. You need to have been born in 1926 or earlier! Proof of age at the luncheon check-in table will be most appreciated.
