Food for Thought: Exploring the Food-Mind-Body Connection as We Age
Our speaker for October is nutritionist Dori Renn, a founder of CirKel Fitness in Lafayette Square in Tustin.
Join us to separate fact from fiction as we travel the often-confusing landscape of nutritional needs. Dori will share the latest thinking on dietary needs for women as we age. We’ll explore food trends, little-known food facts, hints for dining out in restaurants and how women can address dietary and physical limitations.
Dori graduated from Mater Dei, holds an MBA from Cal State Fullerton and currently is completing her certification as a nutritionist from UC San Diego. She has 20 years of experience in the field of fitness, including advising companies on repetitive motion injury prevention, teaching cycling and fitness classes and instructing Pilates. (And yes, she will explain exactly what Pilates is.) She is married, is the mother of two adorable daughters, and is the daughter of our very own branch member Kathy Weir.

6:30 pm – 7:00 pm Social Hour
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Program/Speaker
8:00 – 8:30 pm Branch business meeting

DIRECTIONS:The Temple is on the southeast corner of Fairhaven and Tustin Ave. It’s 1.5 miles west on Fairhaven from our old home at Prentice.  The address is 2625 N. Tustin Ave, Santa Ana, CA 92705.  BUT using that address to put into your GPS will lead you astray.   We should use the entrance to the parking lot from Fairhaven.  Do not enter the parking lot from the entrance on Tustin Ave.  That takes you to the preschool.

From the North:Exit off on the southbound 55 FWY,  at Chapman and turn right/west onto Chapman Ave.  Go 300 ft. and -use the left 2 lanes to turn left/south onto Tustin Ave. and go for 1 mile. Turn left/east onto Fairhaven. Turn right into the first driveway and then right again into our section of the parking lot.

 From the South:Exit off the northbound 55 Fwy at 17th Street.  Use the 2 left lanes to turn left/west onto 17th St.  Cross over the fwy and use the right lane to turn right/north onto Tustin Ave.  Go 1.5 miles., pass the Temple and turn right/east at the corner onto Fairhaven. Turn right into the first driveway and right again into our section of the parking lot.

From the south without getting onto the fwy:Go north on either Yorba or Prospect to Fairhaven, Turn left/west onto Fairhaven and after you cross over the 55 Fwy, pass Ponderosa on your left and then turn left into the driveway for the Temple.  You may never see Ponderosa its such a little street. Turn right into our section of the parking lot

Park in one of the 40 parking places; notice the 4 handicapped places on right edge.   Walk toward the bronze gates and the AAUW banner. See the buttons  on the left where you will enter the gate code and push open the gate.  We will have our own gate code that will work just for us on the 1st Wednesday of each month.  If you forget the code, there will be a phone number on the banner.  Call that number and someone will come let you in.  Proceed to the 2nd set of doors on your left.  This is the hall way to the Boardroom.  Congratulations! You made it!

If you do not have the gate code, look on the AAUW banner hanging on the fence.  Call the number on the sign and someone will come out and let you in.
