February 5 – CAARI in Action! – Volunteering in the AM and Rhythmic Class in PM


It is trues that CAARI is for active retirees and we take that seriously.  It is much more than a tour program.  Today was our first time with our volunteer assignment.  All of us are working in the Botanical Gardens, located on the campus of Tel Aviv University.  

We had a terrific introduction by Tal, who took us for a tour of the Gardens and than put us to work, weeding and separating seeds for as part of an international seed project.

    We also had the opportunity to  met other volunteers.  It was a great day to be outside.  

Back to the hotel for lunch before our next adventure. Mayumana is one of Israel’s leading dance troupes, established in 1996 and performs throughout the world.  It combines dance, rhythmic and percussion sounds with much energy and enthusiasm.  On Sunday, CAARI  joined a class,  No, they are not ready for the stage, but it sure was lots of fun.
