A Personal Message from Mark Riedy, PhD, San Diego Oasis Advisory Board Member Preamble: This story about being scammed
A Discussion | A Partner | A Motivator | A Carpooler
What do these things have in common?
They each take two people. We call it the “Friend Factor.”
If you have a friend who is missing out on all that Oasis offers, be a Hero and invite them to join you for a class. We’ll make it worth your while:
- The member who brings in the most NEW members who actually take a class will be in the Top 10 Hero List that will be posted in the lobby and in the catalog.
- Hero Members will earn class credits
- Hero Members will earn gift cards ($100 1st prize, $50 2nd prize, $25 3rd prize)
- Special Reception for Friends and their Hero
NOTE: When registering for their first class, your friend will need to indicate who referred them so that you get the appropriate credit:
- IN PERSON: Provide them with a “My Friend is a Hero” card that they can present when registering.
- PHONE: They can simply provide your name if registering over the phone.
- ON-LINE: When registering on line, click the “How Did You Hear About Oasis?” and they will be able to enter your name.
Jolyn and William strongly believe in successful aging and the role San Diego Oasis plays in bringing programs and activities to older adults to encourage active, healthy lifestyles that support aging well. In honor of Jolyn’s father, Joe Burrucker, they have decided to include San Diego Oasis in their estate plan.

Based on the Five Pillars of Courageous Living and the Courageous Aging book, this class will afford students an opportunity to free themselves of self-limiting myths, biases, judgments, misconceptions and fears, grieve the loss of their younger selves and embrace the older version of themselves with compassion, patience, affection, encouragement, humility, love and understanding.
"With a growing population of older adults here in San Diego, we have unlimited potential to change the world. Our only limitation is our imagination. We choose to appreciate that getting older is a gift, but growing old is optional." -Simona Valanciute | President & CEO (excerpt from The San Diego Union-Tribune Retail Trends, August 6, 2017)
San Diego Oasis presents the largest Technology Fair for older adults 50 and over in San Diego County.

In addition, we have the very popular Ask the Expert area for individual questions and one-on-one help with devices.
