The holidays are going to be here before we know it and this year has left me with more questions than answers on what that looks like for me and my family. So when VCC announced that they were going to make their Holiday Homes Tour virtual, I was excited to be able to finally plan something I know won’t be canceled.


Being on the VCC Board of Directors puts me closer to events like this happening in my community. I know they’re coming from a good place and being used for a good cause, and that’s important to me. Did you know that about 1 in 10 American children utilize care from community health centers? That’s a lot of children depending on a system that really needs our help right now.


The annual Holiday Homes Tour was started to help support these children specifically. All proceeds raised from the tour this year are going to VCC’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, so you know you’re participating in a worthy cause. So if you’re planning on doing anything for the holidays this year, I encourage you to do this. Not only will you get to see some really beautiful homes decorated by professional designers, you’ll be supporting Vista Community Clinic. It really is that easy.


The tour will be a virtual home tour and by purchasing your ticket you will have the ability to view the tour anytime within the week of12/13-12/20 and I’m attaching the invitation for you.

The DemoSapiens Webinar series is designed to help participants place the current global crisis of democracy within the larger context of social and political development. Navigating through this (or indeed an ecological, economic or cultural crisis) depends upon our ability to understand how we got here, the multiple forces that are in play (e.g. economics, technology, our own physiology, and neurology), and what history can teach us about human successes and limitations in addressing complex problems.
This webinar series will seek to ensure that the discourse around democracy, politics, and culture can be well-informed, thoughtful, and mature, rather than reactive, angry, wishful, or riddled with assumptions.
