Travel Club!

The West Ocean Travel Club begins its 3rd year on Monday September 9, featuring South Africa.   The presentation by Bonita Stewart will be in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room at 7, preceded at 6:30 by an optional potluck dinner.

From our presenter:  My trip to South Africa kept its promise of sheer delight with wide-open spaces, a wealth of wildlife, game parks of outstanding natural beauty, coastal paradise, breathtaking landscapes, mountainous regions with unlimited hiking possibilities, and incredible ethnic diversity which is a source of an outstanding artistic vitality.

During my presentation I will highlight the beauty of southern Africa by giving a first-hand account of my experience and showing pictures of each location.  I will start in the metropolitan coastal city of Cape Town, followed by Durban and the country of Swaziland, ending in Johannesburg, the financial capital of South Africa. Lastly, I will talk about the cultural experience I had and give my perspective as an African American traveling to South Africa.

We welcome all of our old members back and look forward to meeting new West Ocean residents who love to travel!


Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday August 21,2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “The Plot Against America” by Philip Roth (Moderator: Suman). This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“In an astonishing feat of narrative invention, our most ambitious novelist imagines an alternate version of American history. In 1940 Charles A. Lindbergh, heroic aviator and rabid isolationist, is elected President. Shortly thereafter, he negotiates a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler, while the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy growing up in Newark, Lindbergh’s election is the first in a series of ruptures that threatens to destroy his small, safe corner of America- and with it, his mother, his father, and his older brother.”- Amazon

Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean. This is an open invite for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Library. As the moment’s passes, the patrons and staff who had been cleared out of the building realized this was not the usual fire alarm. As the fireman recounted, “Once that first stack got going, it was Goodbye Charlie.” The fire was disastrous: it reached 2000 degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand more. Investigators descended on scene, but more than thirty years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library-and if so, who?” – Amazon

Bridge and Rummikub Club

A great way to get to know fellow residents is to join in on one of our weekly social groups! Even if you’ve never played Bridge or Rummikub, this is a great way not just to learn to play but to develop some potential life-long friends!

Join us every Tuesday night at 7pm for a fun and relaxed playing environment! Now on Tuesday nights in the Tower 1 Banquet Room (on the Tuesdays when there’s a Board Meeting we will meet in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room). Hope to see you there!

Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, June 19th, 2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Erich Maria Remarque. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.  

“Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other–if only he can come out of the war alive.” – Amazon

Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, May 15th, 2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “Mercy Dogs” by Tyler Dilts. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“For sixteen years, Ben Shepard loyally served the Long Beach Police Department. Then he took a bullet to the head, and his life was shattered. No one expects much of anything from him anymore—except his father, an old man receding into a fog of his own. And except maybe his tenant, Grace, who’s been a warm and friendly constant in his and his father’s bleak lives. Until the day she vanishes. After an official investigation stalls, Ben moves forward on his own. But stepping into Grace’s past—and all she was hiding—is a dangerous move for a man who can’t trust his memories from one day to the next. The deeper he gets, the more he has to question whether he’s being driven by the gut instincts of a suspicious former cop or by paranoia. Recognizing what’s real can save Grace’s life. If only he can trust himself to do it…” – Amazon
