Newsletter – November 2018

Having problems finding  the newsletter online?  Well it’s on the City of Walnut Creek’s web page for 50+.  As this is an extremely large file, I don’t see any reason to duplicate it. There is a link for the city’s “Adults 50+” site on the right side of every web page.  It’s under the Section “Seniors“.  Look for the link titled “Walnut Creek Seniors City Site“.   When you go to this page, just click on the link for the month you want under “Check Out Our Newsletters“.

To make it easier, here is the link for the Novemberr2018 Newsletter.  The city will take this newsletter down in about two months, so if you want a permanent copy, download and save it.
