Sometimes, teenagers need a little guidance. Most times, grandparents are great role models. That’s the concept behind the GranVida Grandparent Buddy Program in partnership with Rincon High School, where both sides are benefitting in Carpinteria.
A recent Wall Street Journal article discussed a better phrase for “Senior Citizens”. Was it “Elders”? Not exactly. What about “Baby Boomers”? Old hat. “Perennials” is the phrase that was first used by author Gina Pell, Content Chief of The What, in a 2016 email newsletter, but not everyone accepts it readily into their lexicon.
GranVida recently hosted a book reading by Donnie Nair, a Carpinteria resident, Coastal View News columnist, and notable gal about town. Ms. Nair wears many hats, including mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, real estate agent and community volunteer.
A great story about "Einstein" appeared earlier this week on the front page of the Santa Barbara News-Press. "Einstein" is our affectionate nickname for "It's Never 2 Late" (IN2L), an advanced computer system with a 65-inch television screen being enjoyed by residents throughout GranVida.
Every Thursday, something very special happens at GranVida. It's not "Must See TV on NBC" and it's not one of Chef Ken's special dishes (although they're all delicious). It's "Music Thursdays" when residents, families and friends are entertained by a wide variety of local musicians.
