Stress Busters – 5 Steps to Deal with Stress (D2U)
Weekly on Tuesdays, 3-4 pm – July 7, 14, 21 and 28th
Stress comes in many ways. It’s that uneasy feeling we get when we’re upset — whether it’s because we’re angry, worried, depressed or disturbed for other reasons. For many of us, it’s hard not to be stressed and anxious in the midst of challenging times.
In Tuesday Stress Buster workshops, we’ll learn how stress starts and a simple effective method to handle your reaction to situations. You’ll learn a five step process to reduce stress and help you better respond to any situation in a helpful way, instead of getting upset. Stress Busters (also known as Ding Sum) has been serving seniors in San Francisco for over 30 years.
This weekly series will be fun and practical. Leave each session with new practical insights on how to better handle whatever life throws at you.
Speaker – Eileen Chan is a native San Franciscan, trained as an optometrist and married with three grown children. She has volunteered with Stress Busters since the organization was founded over 30 years ago.

Please join us for a very special Live & Learn:
Internment of Japanese Americans during World War II—a personal story.
Thursday, July 30, 1-2:30pm.
Nearly 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were incarcerated in concentration camps in the western interior of the United States during World War II. Their forced relocation and internment were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Sixty-two percent of the internees were U.S. citizens, including the parents of our speaker, Mr. John H. Suzukida
Suzukida will speak about his parents’ experiences during WWII. His talk will include historical context and quotes from his parents describing their time of internment, post-war resettlement, and assimilation back into society. He will share pictures, artifacts, and the story of how his parents chose to live with this challenge—being imprisoned while in their early 20s, what they experienced, and how they went on with their lives, leaving the camps with just $25 and a train ticket to a destination of their choice.

Show and Tell – for Grown Ups! Arts, Crafts & Hobbies + Face Mask Fashion Show
Friday July 17, 11:30am – 1pm
Why should kids have all the fun?
We’re taking over the tradition of “Show and Tell” to give you a chance to share or listen to stories. Every other week we’ll have a different theme. You can choose to tell a story, or simply enjoy the tales others share.
This is amateur hour, so no need to prepare anything. Simply look around your home and find something you want to share a story about, whether it’s an object, a photo, or simply a memory. The important thing is to have fun with it! Each story teller will get 3 minutes to “Show and Tell.”
JULY 31 THEME – ARTS, CRAFTS & HOBBIES:
Show off a project you’ve been working on during shelter in place! Whether you’ve been quilting, woodworking, puzzling, knitting, planting a garden, fixing up a car, cooking or anything else — show it off!
Brag, tell us why you enjoy it, share tips or explain why we should consider taking up a new hobby!
* BONUS – we’d love for everyone on the Zoom to show off what they wear on their face these days for our first NEXT Village Zoom Face Mask Fashion Show!
This is a chance for all of us to share a moment of laughter on Zoom as we model our latest fashion statement!!!
When you register for Show and Tell, let us know if you want to share a story or if you just want to listen in (or if you’ll decide later).
This is a lunchtime event – you can eat lunch while watching, if you like!
