The San Rafael Goldenaires Senior Citizen Organization (sponsored by the city of San Rafael Community Services Department) is a Recreational Club for Seniors that meets in the heart of downtown at the San Rafael Community Center (fully accessible). The club is quite active, and an opportunity to meet other people. Fee: $30 per year plus optional name badge for $7. As of early 2011, you must be at least age 62 to participate in the Goldenaires exercise program and other programs. This is a requirement for maintaining non-profit status for this senior organization.

Special events include monthly trips around the Bay Area, Reno, Tahoe, Indian Casinos, Broadway theatre productions, extended tours throughout the state, country and Europe, weekly Bingo games, monthly business meetings, special luncheons, dinner dances, and a craft fair.  You may call and request a brochure.

“A man ninety years old was asked to what he attributed his longevity. I reckon, he said, with a twinkle in his eye, it’s because most nights I went to bed and slept when I should have sat up and worried.” ~ Dorthea Kent
