San DIegans can find an OASIS in their lives lived at 50 and after.

Members at OASIS in San Diego stay ready to add a little life work to their lives. Productivity, at 50 years old and older, out in town, makes a "successful life" complete.

LEarning to make herb and plant remediess at Macy's third floor in Mission Valley can be a step in lifelong learning taken this July 14th through July 28th. Seniors' learning starts again every trimester at OASIS.

The non-profit organization adds local seniors to its class rolls at its Escondido Community Center location. Classes run all SUmmer.

At Mission Valley, lives wanting in activity are second best. Not good enough. Summer teachers who teach for the organization run by volunteers, will teach knitting and crochet, and watercolors. Seniors can use their hands, or use their voice to give something to San Diego. Work, or lesiure, filling up blank pages can start at a Write and Be Published! class.

LIfelong learning keeps the seniors as productive as they can be.

In June, seniors got ready to guarantee San Diego's new San Salvador ship, a replica of Cabrillo's Galleon, never stays unknown. They took a class onthe work building the San Salvador.

Out in Escondido, like inthe city, senior San Diegans will learn to use modern technology. Texting and email on an iPhone or iPad can keep friends and family closer in life, again and again, after OASIS brings the seniors up to date. Windows 8 does not have to stay confounding. An Escondido class makes working with it, not against it,, easier.

Membership in OASIS is free. San DIegans can register online at

The members at Escondido can pick up their day time after learning to design jewelry.

An easy life is not always the best life. Day trips and travel keep seniors' lifestyle active. An OASIS trip stroll through Balboa Park takes walkers back to the early 1900s beginning. WHen the park was named.

The members find a way to put their heart in an outdoor life learning trip. OASIS set up Summer trips to the San Francisco area for a wine and country tour. Sights and tastes will fill the days in Napa, SOnoma, St. Helena, and Calistoga.

San DIego OASIS makes "successful living" an adventure. The members also have the opportunity to teach K-4 students the possibilities in life. A community service job. Four hundred trained volunteer tutors start with students' reading skills. Students in need get the extra teaching attention.

At schools in San DIego, Chula Vista, La Mesa-Spring Valley, Rancho Bernardo, and Temecula.

More is in store for the future at Macy's. OASIS, led by Executive Director Simona Valanciute, stays at work on a location facelift with Marie Amaro, and other designers, on a team from the New School of Architecture and Design. New signage and column painting stay under design while OASIS asks for donations for the project.

The plan is to add San Diego cityscape partition art, and, an art installation with adjustable painting easels behind the lobby that will display the OASIS "successful living" mission on a lobby wall.
