Oct 24

It is that time of year - nights are cooler, days are shorter, and the air is more crisp. You guessed it, fall is here and LightHouse is kicking off the season with a Pumpkin Palooza, part of our Milestone Meetup series.

When: Thursday, October 24, 2019, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Where: LightHouse Headquarters, 10th Floor
Cost: $20.00 (this covers the cost of your pumpkin and ingredients for the curry and bread). Free for San Francisco residents.
RSVP: Contact Bobbi Pompey at 415-694-7613 or by Tuesday, October 22. Please include any dietary restrictions or food allergies.

LightHouse friends of all ages will join together for yet another inter-generational Milestones Meet-Up to celebrate all things pumpkin. We will be carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, candle holders or other festive creations. We'll simmer a savory pot of pumpkin curry, bake a mouthwatering loaf of pumpkin bread, and enjoy all of these activities while sipping pumpkin spiced lattes and hot cider, socializing with other folks of various ages who are blind or have low vision, and most importantly practicing valuable blindness skills.

Those attending should be comfortable with knives and other sharp tools, stove-tops, ovens and wet/dry measurements. Thanks to grant funding, this event is FREE for San Francisco residents.

What is the Milestone Meet-Up?
The Milestones Meetup is a series of LightHouse activities aimed to bring Blind and Low Vision San Franciscans from Generation Z, Generation X, and Baby Boomers to come together and participate in a series of Meetups that are active, educational and just plain fun. But wait - you don't live in San Francisco? Come anyway if you are Gen Z, X or Baby Boomer. Share experiences, discover commonalities and learn from one another. Not sure what generation you are a part of? Baby Boomers range in age from 55 to 72, Generation X from 42 to 54, and members of Generation Z are 26 and younger.
