Welcome Friends and Neighbors!

Tierrasanta Village of San Diego (TVSD) has had quite a year+ of trying to keep up with the ebb and flow of the coronavirus situation.  While we are intent on re-establishing " normal" levels of business and recreation,   We are also highly aware that member safety is a primary requirement.  our goal is to put strong safety procedures in place as we implement plans to re-establish our TVSD activity and event schedule!

Please feel free to browse our website, and check back for changes in our events and activity schedules as Covid-19 restrictions are modified.

What's Happening At our Village...  (and the best funnies ever right HERE )  

    OMG, Real People?  Shock Crowd GIF by South Park
Well no, not quite yet!

TVSD had high hopes that the January Monthly Meeting would be held both IRL (in real life) as well as on Zoom.  Does that sound like fun or what?!

Alas, it was not to be as our BOD decided an abundance was in order, and moved the Monthly Meeting back to Zoom based.

Stay tuned to this channel on how and when future meetings will be formatted.

Dear Members:

  In light of the increased number of COVID cases in San Diego County, and the likelihood that many of our Villagers have traveled out-of-town and spent time with family and friends during these past two weeks of the holiday season, we are now requiring that masks once again be worn for events at the clubhouse beginning Monday, January 3, 2022.

This requirement will be in effect for the first two weeks of January and then we will re-evaluate the situation on a week-by-week basis until the county COVID numbers decrease. We want to be proactive and protect our members, but do not want to cancel all in-person events at the clubhouse at this time

.Do You Know the Difference?


With Covid cases rapidly climbing after post holiday travel and get togethers, please take a few minutes to review this short video to keep you and loved ones safe.

What is Ageism and Why Does It Matter?

Do you have negative feelings about growing older? Can these feelings actually impact your health and longevity Have you ever felt “invisible” when asking for help in a public setting? Do you think that our society places greater value on youth, including the importance of “staying” as young as possible? Are you discounted when helping someone—like you are too old to really know something? How does the media reinforce these perceptions?

These are some of the questions the Care Committee will examine on Friday, February 18 at 1:00 at the Clubhouse. We will watch a video produced by the Village to Village network which will be followed by discussion and shared examples of how this may affect the quality of life as we age, and possibly even our longevity. What can we do to make us feel more important, indispensable?
After all, we have a lot of earned wisdom to contribute to society.We hope you join us to explore this important topic. 
Totally Awesome Villagers!

Time To Improve your Dementia/Alzheimer's Knowledge?

Interested in Reducing Alzheimer's Risk?

We have all read and heard about ways to maximize our brain health.  Follow the below link for an article that condenses what we have read and heard down to “6 pillars of a brain-healthy lifestyle”.  

Do you Know the early 7 signs of Demenita?

The linked article reminds us that “….persistent difficulty with memory, cognition, and ability to perform everyday tasks might be signs that something more serious (than normal forgetfulness) is happening to (our) brain”.  Discover more with the following link.

Are you a Male Solo Ager?

This article, written by a man who is a solo ager, focuses on the particular challenges faced by male solo agers.  The main emphasis is on the fact that most men don’t like to admit vulnerability or ask for help, and on how important it is to “go toward others”, rather than isolating".  

Being a Solo Ager

        Gaetano's Fundraiser

Thank you to everyone who showed up at our Gaetano's Fundraiser on 
Nov. 6.  We supported a local restaurant, had fun visiting, and made $300 for the Village. Love our teamwork!! 

     Museum of Making Music

Museum of Making Music: On November 10, 2021, 10 TVSD members attended a guided tour of the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad.  The museum was founded in 1998 and open only to NAMM members. Then in March 2000 they opened it to the public as well.  The following paragraph is from an email sent to us by the Museum Operations Manager: “The Museum of Making Music showcases the people and products that bring music to our world. The Museum is segmented into four areas: the Making of the Instruments (manufacturing), Providing the Instruments (retail), Using the Instruments (playing), and Beyond the Instrument.

Villages are planning programs and operations in light of California's expected re-opening. What has the COVID era taught us? What new ways of doing business will we keep, and what former ways will we resume? How are we reimagining the post-COVID village?
