Senior Center celebrates Friends Tree

Speaker explores how to use wisdom of older adults

More than 125 seniors gathered at the Pleasanton Senior Center recently to celebrate the anniversary of the Friends Tree tribute program.

The event was sponsored by the Friends of Pleasanton Senior Center, a nonprofit group dedicated to enhancing its programs and services.

The Friends Tree is a beautifully designed work of art on permanent display at the center, a lasting, visible reminder to all visitors of those individuals, businesses or organizations that have made significant donations to the center.

For contributions of $250 or more, a leaf is added to the tree engraved with the donor's name.

The celebration included lunch and a talk by Richard Caro, co-founder of Tech-enhanced Life, who spoke on dealing with aging and leveraging the wisdom of older adults to have a positive impact. Caro will be returning in March to introduce a new program called "Longevity Explorers."

For more information on contributing to the Friends Tree, go to or contact the Senior Center at 931-5365.
