About the Twin Cities Village

The Twin Cities Village aims to create a community which cares about the whole person as it responds to individual interests and requests. We offer a great variety of activities and social events as well as access to a volunteer network to lend a helping hand, if and when needed.

Spotlight on a member - Marjolaine O'Neill

In her own words.

I was born in 1922 in Vallejo, California I attended school there and in Sacramento. I majored in Art at Sacramento College.

During the War, I worked as a draftsman on ship’s deck plans at Mare Island Naval Shipyard. After the war, I attended Chouinard Art School in Los Angeles. After two years, there I moved to San Francisco working with Art Agencies until I was hired by the State Department of Industrial Relations in San Francisco as a Graphic Artist until I retired. After I retired I enjoyed travelling and painting in many countries (Mexico, Eastern Europe, Bali, the Middle East and Hawaii.) I am happy I could travel when the world was a safer place.

Living in Marin I belonged to the Marin Watercolor Society and the Marin Society of Artists. I exhibited with them and at one woman shows. I was also active in Folk Dancing groups.

One of the things I am most proud of is my illustrations for Jack R. Wagner’s book ‘Gold Mines of California.  I don’t paint anymore because of my arthritis, but I still enjoy going to galleries.

Being Mortal - Film and Discussion
Wednesday, March 15   2:30 PM
Central Marin Police Authority
250 Doherty, Larkspur

“Being Mortal” – Based on the bestselling book by Boston Surgeon Atul Gawande

This Emmy Award nominated film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors are often  remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.

Plan to engage in a lively post-film discussion with representatives from Hospice by the Bay and the Marin County Commission on Aging.

Volunteers

The kind of people who volunteer for TCV are often but not always older members of our community who have time on their hands and want to be associated with a movement that is improving lives.

They may be youth, millennials or middle aged looking for a cause that fulfills their passion for helping others who could use a helping hand. They may have a skill, talent or passion they would like to share and believe that no one stands alone or, they may want to give back for all the help they received along the way.

Join us in making this village a Village...if not now, when; if not you, who?

Call 415-517-3631 or email info@marinvillages.org to find out how you can volunteer.
