Where/When: , 461 Orange Ave., Friday, Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Events include presentations from filmakers.  This is a unique event that is very much worth the drive to San Jose. The films to be shown include Close Harmony, an Academy Award-winning documentary about a senior citizen chorus and an elementary school chorus who practice for a combined concert, and Shattering the Myth of Aging, about seniors in their  70s, 80s and 90s who compete in demanding sports at the Senior Olympics. There's much more, too many to list here.

Pricing:  $10, includes box lunch


Where/When: Westwind Barn 27210 Altamont Road, Los Altos Hills / Saturday, 9-11:30 a.m.

Why Go: The emphasis this year is less about win/place/show and more about getting out for the love of running—or walking—in the beautiful pathways of Los Altos Hills. It's why people have chosen to live here for decades.  Pre-registration is over, but morning-of registration is available to those who arrive early (t-shirts are not guaranteed) 

Where/When:  , 377 1st St., Saturday, 1:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

Why Go: If you are new to yoga, or haven't had the time to really explore it, this is your opportunity.  This workshop will give you a solid introduction to Yoga with an overview of the various forms of yoga and what to expect in a yoga class. The pace will be just right for beginners.

Pricing: $25
