Food, Glorious Food

The end of the year brings celebrations for many faiths and cultures. Key to these festivities is traditional foods. Tell us about your favorites—whether created from a recipe handed down through generations or culled last year from a food blog. No matter the role and significance of the dish, they all include one common ingredient—love.

The Way We Were: Memoir Writing

Villagers Patty Allen and Janet Quilici will share their experiences with and insights from memoir writing. Why write a memoir? Enjoy the re-living of your memories. Pass on the treasure of your unique life perspective. Appreciate your accomplishments for a sense of completeness. While we continue to protect each other by sheltering in place, you may want to use the time to tell your story and leave a legacy.

The Culture Club

Meet Me in St Louis
December 21
2:00 - 3:30 pm
If you are interested in visual and performing arts—theatre, opera, music, dance, art—welcome to The Culture Club. Join us for a discussion of the Irish Repertory Theatre's production of Meet Me in St Louis. We will watch the show separately, then gather over Zoom to share our thoughts on this piece plus others we might have seen during this or past holiday seasons. We can also discuss topics of mutual interest and a schedule for meetings in the new year.

Irish Rep productions are available to stream for free, with an option for a pay-what-you-can donation. Note: Irish Rep is appointment theatre as in real life. You reserve a ticket for a specific date and time (note that it is Eastern time zone). Tickets are available now on for broadcasts December 11 - January 2.


The City of Fremont’s Human Services Department received a very large donation of 1000 surgical face masks and 50 face shields. Greater Niles Village is helping with distribution. They are available free of charge to our Members and Volunteer Service Providers and Niles Canyon Mobile Estates. If you have not received your masks, please contact or 510-936-0214 for assistance.
