The average age of our members is 74 years. The age breakdown is as follows: 2% are 50 to 59, 26% are 60 to 69, 50% are 70 to 79 and 22% are 80 or older. The oldest member (when the data was collected) is 98 years.
Thirty-two percent of the membership live in Irvine followed by Newport Beach at 14%, Huntington Beach at 7%, Mission Viejo at 6%, Santa Ana at 5%, Laguna Beach and Tustin at 4% with the rest scattered throughout Orange County. Fifty-six percent of our members live with a spouse, 37% live alone and 7% either live with a friend or in a retirement community. Continue reading

Sue Nunn, M.A., President, Endowment Horizons, presented a hands-on workshop on July 29th for compiling essential documents, instructions and information a loved one or personal representative needs to know should you become incapacitated. When tragedy strikes, it’s no time to go through drawers, filing cabinets and boxes looking for information. Those who bear responsibility for your affairs need the material immediately.

Everything we experience, including our very existence, depends on the properties of 118 kinds of substances, the chemical elements. In this series of lectures each class will provide examples to show that what we experience in the world and how we achieve our purposes are connected to the properties of specific chemical elements. For these elements we will describe some of their properties, how they became recognized to be fundamental substances, where they occur in nature, and how their properties are linked to our experience. Our classroom allows for only very limited demonstrations so we will make use of materials from the Internet to illustrate the elemental properties.
