I would have loved to volunteer here...BUT...I find it a disjointed place. I participate in Dublin's Senior Center, for if you haven't seen it or participated? They REALLY have a SENIOR CENTER that caters to seniors with a HUGE variety of classes and events and lunch and, well, it makes me wonder about both San Ramon's as well as Pleasanton's senior centers...They could learn alot from Dublin's (as I have!) The layout there is "resort like" and it's VERY friendly and really puts other centers in question.

Really? Just when were you last at the San Ramon Senior Center? It offers so many classes, it's hard to choose! I have found everyone extremely friendly and welcoming. Lunch is available most days of the week for only a $2 donation. A community breakfast (all ages welcome) is held on the second Sunday of 10 months of the year, for only $5...coffee and juice included. Can't beat that! The volunteer opportunities are too many to count. It is a really beautiful building...and was greatly expanded about 7 years ago. Van service to and from your home is also available most days. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it...many hundred of seniors do. Your negativity is sad.

I've been there a couple of times a year the past 3 years...Then spent some time at Pleasanton's - THEN tried Dublin's...Sorry, unless you've done the same? You probably have no clue what the very real differences are. Your short-sightedness is, well, your's!

I live in Dublin and have been to our Senior Center a number of times. I find some of the people there rather snooty and unwelcoming. You have to get your reservation in way in advance for lunch. Also, they don't advocate for senior causes. I prefer the San Ramon and Pleasanton centers.
