Mill Valley Village is a place to belong, to connect with old and new friends. Our more than 100 local volunteers, your neighbors, couple old-fashioned neighborliness with modern know-how to provide a wide range of programs and valuable benefits to fellow villagers as well as to the broader Mill Valley community.

We are delighted to announce a new offering from the partnership between Mill Valley Village and our amazing Mill Valley Library! Dr. Louise Aronson, author of the New York Times bestseller "Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life", and UCSF Professor of Medicine, envisions a large-scale shift in society's and medicine's attitude toward aging.

The program begins at 7pm. Doors open for registered guests at 6:30pm for a free wine reception.
Registration is highly recommended and will open October 7th.

A Celebration of Mill Valley Village Artists
September 22nd, 3 - 5:00
Mill Valley Golf Course Clubhouse
For those of you who were able to make it, it was a lovely, sociable afternoon celebrating and admiring these artists and their art. We were all just amazed at the variety and the quality of the work on display. There were paintings, ceramics, photography, sculpture, handwork, fabric art and more. Truly impressive.
As hoped, it was an easy-going afternoon with plenty of time to mingle and talk with artists about their work, while enjoying refreshments and each other's company. And adding a new dimension to our connections with our fellow villagers.
The amazing planning team of Ginna Fleming, Mary Hammond, Trish Hibben, Karen Robbins and Liz Stone are already talking about the possibliity of making it an annual event. Once again, stay tuned.
And thank you for making it a very special afternoon.
Spirit Rock - First Thursday Afternoons
Mill Valley Villagers (members, volunteers and friends) are invited to join us at the Mill Valley Golf Course Clubhouse for a monthly program featuring video talks from the world famous Spirit Rock Center.
In 2019, these talks will be featured the first Thursday afternoon of the month from 3 - 4:30 in:
May, June, September, October and November.
As many of you know, Marin County is fortunate to have the wonderful Spirit Rock Meditation Center so close by. The center offers many innovative programs. Among them is a Monday evening meditation program followed by a speaker, often a bestselling author or luminary in their field. These sessions are attended by many participants at Spirit Rock, but they are also "live-streamed" so that those who cannot make it to the center may watch and listen. The folks at Spirit Rock have kindly supported our interest in making some of the talks available for a group of villagers to watch together.
