The COVID-19 Vaccine seems to be more available – particularly to those of us over 65. Ventura County continues to publish news about COVID-19 at https://www.venturacountyrecovers.org/.  I urge all of you to review it periodically. Hopefully soon we can get back to some sense of normalcy and maybe even have REAVC luncheons again.

“The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging (VCAAA) is able to provide transportation tickets to seniors (60+) and people with disabilities FREE OF COST. ElderHelp Transportation program provides Dial-A-Ride Tickets (i.e. paratransit) and/or Fixed Route Bus Tickets for non-emergency medical appointments, shopping, visiting family, etc., limited, free transportation to medical appointments for low income and frail seniors, and/or disabled adults unable to use the bus (for example clients requiring gurney transportation).

For more information, or to request tickets, call the VCAAA at 805-477-7300. You can also get more information at https://www.vcaaa.org/our-services/

Another relatively low-cost method of transportation is Uber. In some cases, Uber is even providing free rides to seniors. You can access Uber at https://www.uber.com/

REAVC LUNCHEONS – We all miss the REAVC luncheons, the opportunity to catch up with old friends, but the COVID-19 restrictions and uncertainty continue to prevent us from scheduling large group meetings. We will be back!! 

REAVC CALENDAR FOR 2021 – Every plan is made to be changed but failure to plan is to plan to fail. HUH? Anyway our current calendar for 2021 can be found by clicking here. CLICK HERE!!   Just remember, the calendar is subject to change despite our best efforts.
