Happy New Year!
The Orinda Association Board wishes you a happy and healthy 2022! We hope you have been able to spend the recent holidays with family and friends and are looking forward to an active new year.
After another year dealing with the pandemic, I think we’re all ready for a little more “normal” in our lives. Things seem to be headed that way as more and more businesses and entertainment venues return to in-person events.
With the vaccine proving effective against the various COVID-19 variants, I know I am more hopeful about venturing out more into the community, having a meal at Orinda restaurants and attending our beautiful Orinda Theatre. Did you know the theater is once again offering great cabaret performances with Live at the Orinda!? You can check out the schedule on Page 9 of this paper or go to www.orindamovies.com.
And, speaking of going out, The Orinda Association’s (OA) events committee has been busy planning a fun, family event to brighten up the winter. Look for details in this column next month or visit www.orindaassociation.org.
The OA enters the new year with a new slate of officers and lots of opportunities for the community to become involved with our various programs. Our new officers include me as president, with the incredibly organized Latika Malkani as vice president. Cindy Powell has agreed to continue as treasurer, and we welcome Marianne Moser as our new secretary.
If you love attending our July 4th celebration and parade or the Orinda Classic Car Show, now is the time to get involved as a volunteer. We have all sorts of opportunities for you to be a part of these events, depending on the time commitment you would like to make. You can volunteer just a few hours on the day of the event or get involved now and help define the activities.
We are also looking for additional board members and welcome your interest and enthusiasm.
Our meetings are once a month on Zoom. Why not help us shape The Orinda Association’s future and have fun at the same time?
Please contact me if you’re interested in being involved in any of our activities or serving on the board.
