Volunteer Resource Committee 

The Volunteer Resource Committee (VRC) has an outstanding opportunity for getting involved in the volunteerism that makes Oakmont unique. The committee is seeking additional volunteers to help manage its purpose. 
To become a member of VRC we request a short bio and statement of why you would fit the purpose stated below. All interested in helping to keep our dues low should consider applying. Send your bio and statement to dawn@oakmontvillage.com. 
Purpose: 
• The committee’s purpose is to serve as an umbrella for all existing volunteer support groups in Oakmont. It will build a bridge between those wishing to volunteer and those organizations seeking volunteers. 
• Provide a space for any board, committee, club, or other organizations to recruit volunteers 
• Encourage OVA (Oakmont Village Association) to frequently highlight the role that volunteers fill in the community via official news outlets, celebrations, and other appreciative activities. 


Memorial Day

As this month ends, the solemn observance of Memorial Day lets us honor the people who have died while serving our country. Whatever else may demand our attention, it is essential that we pause and reflect on the tremendous price some have paid so we can enjoy our freedoms.  

We have prepared a special video for a remembrance of all our veterans. Please take a moment to watch our commemorative short video on Memorial Day, May 30, 2022, which will be available on OVA’s website early that morning. 

Please visit oakmontvillage.com/article/memorial-day-2022 on May 30 to view the video. It will remain available on that page throughout the day and for the remainder of the year.

Upcoming Events


Stand For Justice

Educational Forum 

Thursday, May 26, 6:30 p.m. – East Rec Center and on Zoom 

Our world and our country now need engaged Oakmonters! 
May our light stay turned on until our life gets turned off. 

A forum where together, we can learn more about the historical roots of white supremacy, critical race theory (CRT), voter suppression in our country and how we got from “there to here.” Why are US history, CRT and voter suppression being weaponized today to target marginalized communities and divide rather than unite us? This is the new playbook, and we must be part of the wave that pushes back on hate in peaceful and constructive ways. Let us find ways to speak truth to hate “out there.” 

We will reference relevant writings, present some video clips, and facilitate a discussion to bring awareness to the issues, to how they impact us here and now, and to what we can do about them 

All Oakmont residents and guests are welcome to attend and participate

Let’s Dance – Together!

Beginning Foxtrot Partner Dance Classes Start on June 1 

Wednesdays, June 1, 8 & 15; 6:45 to 8:00 p.m. – East Rec Center 
$10 pp for single class. $8 pp if 2 or more classes are purchased 

June is a fun time to get those toes tapping and learn some basic Foxtrot dance moves! Foxtrot can be danced to a variety of music ranging from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald standards to songs by Michael Bublé, Rod Stewart, Diana Krall and more. 

Over the 3 classes, we will build on the material taught each week. No partners or experience are required. Rotation of partners will be optional. 

Full vaccination plus at least one booster required. Face masks required depending on the local community Covid status at the time classes start. 

Aside from being fun and a fantastic way to get exercise, several studies have shown that dancing on a regular basis may increase mental acuity and reduce the possibility of cognitive decline. It is good for our muscles, balance, brains, and spirit! 

To register or for any questions, contact instructor Terry Whitten at twhitten@pacbell.net or call (415) 265-7590. Please bring your vaccination card or photo of it to the first class you take as well as a face mask in the event a mask is required.

Jewish Interest Group 

New Location for 2nd Meeting 
Sunday, June 12, 2:00 p.m. – East Rec Center 

The first meeting of the Jewish Interest Group (JIG) attracted  33 people interested in the formation of the group. 

A planning / programming committee was formed. People expressed ideas about a variety of topics for future meetings. The general feeling was that the overall direction of the JIG should be secular in nature depending on the subject. The areas of Judaism brought out by the group include Educational, Cultural and Social issues. 

The large turnout plus more than 60 expressions of interest in the group prompts our move from the CAC to the East Recreational Center at 2 PM on June 12. Please come and learn more about Judaism. 

To be added to the Jewish Interest Groups notifications and email list please send your information to Howard Sidorsky (510) 501-8750 or howard@sidorsky.com
