Retirement isn’t just sitting around playing bridge (although there are classes for that). Seniors can stay active be participating in the following activities in El Dorado County, handpicked by El Dorado County elderly care professionals.
1. Plant Riches
Seniors can enjoy a floral tour hosted by botanist Debra Ayres. The tour will start at plant communities in lower elevations like oak woodlands and move towards alpine rock gardens. If you plan to attend, please reserve a spot in advance.
2. Movie Premier
Swing by the Palladio Theaters Folsom to get a first look at The Age of Love. This movie is about a group of real-life seniors who attend a speed-dating event for people between the ages of 70 and 90. The movie offers a funny and poignant look at the universality of love and has won numerous awards.
3. Coffee, Tea, and More
Seniors will visit an El Dorado Hills coffee roasting and tea producing company to learn about the journey from bean to cup. They’ll also be able to taste multiple teas, get answers to any questions they may have, and enjoy a lunch on their own at one of the new restaurants in the area.
Seniors can head to the CSD gym on Friday, October 11, to participate in the senior Oktoberfest luncheon that will also feature live music by Billy C’s Polk Haus Band. A $3 donation is requested from attendees who are 60 and over, $5 for everyone else.
5. Ghosts of El Dorado County
Enjoy dinner at a historic haunted restaurant. Afterwards, a bus will take the group to downtown Placerville for a nice evening stroll along Main Street during which the guide will share entertaining stories about spirits unearthed through her personal research. Bear in mind the walk will be over some uneven surfaces.
