We believe that active adults are strong and healthy!
Being active is important for your overall health and well-being. Adults who are physically active are less likely to develop chronic disease. In addition, maintaining a socially active lifestyle helps our mental, physical, and emotional well-being. In fact, engaging in social events, activities, and classes can be just as effective as exercise in improving our mood and health.
We are focused on enriching your life by helping you boost your mental health, improve your physical health, and create a sense of belonging. Through our activities, we hope to create a place where you can live your best life, on your terms. Whether you are looking for ways to move and stretch your body or ways to expand your mind and meet new friends, we have an activity for you! We encourage all to come out and join in an activity or two!

Oakville started life in the 1860s as a water stop for the steam train owned by The Napa Valley Railroad Company. The railroad, founded by early California pioneer Samuel Brannan in 1864, shuttled tourists between ferry boats that docked in Vallejo to the resort town of Calistoga. The village gained its name from the dense groves of dark green valley oaks of the area.
H. W. Crabb turned Oakville from untamed country to wine country after his 1868 purchase of 240 acres (1.0 km2) close to the Napa River. Crabb established a vineyard and winery naming it To Kalon, which in Greek means “the beautiful.” By 1877 Crabb had planted 130 acres (0.5 km2) and was producing 50,000 gallons of wine per year and by 1880, his vineyard had increased to 430 acres (1.7 km2).
In 1903 the U.S. Department of Agriculture established an experimental vineyard station in Oakville. This vineyard known as “Oakville Station” is operated by the University of California, Davis. Formally declared a Napa appellation in 1993 there are currently 24 wineries and over 5,000 acres (20 km2) of vineyard located within the boundary of the Oakville AVA. The Robert Mondavi Winery is located between Oakville and Rutherford, California (though its corporate headquarters are in nearby St. Helena). To Kalon was part of Mondavi’s original inventory when it was established in 1965. Another Mondavi venture in Oakville is Opus One Winery. Heitz Wine Cellars‘ Martha’s Vineyard is also located within the Oakville appellation.
Modern day tourists traveling on State Route 29 often include a stop at Oakville Grocery, one of the area’s few non-winery business in order to purchase picnic supplies. The Napa Valley Wine Train runs through Oakville on the same route that the original steam train ran on over in the 19th century.
Town of Rutherford CA
Rutherford was founded on the nearly 12,000-acre Mexican land grant, Rancho Caymus, which was deeded to early settler George C. Yount from General Mariano Vallejo in 1838. Yount gave a small portion of the grant as a wedding present to his granddaughter, Elizabeth, when she married Thomas Rutherford in 1864, and the family name stuck.
City of St. Helena
The City of St. Helena is located in the center of the world famous wine growing Napa Valley, 65 miles north of San Francisco.
The area was settled in 1834 as part of General Vallejo’s land grant. The City of St. Helena was incorporated as a City on March 24, 1876 and reincorporated on May 14, 1889.
The City from its inception has served as a rural agricultural center. Over the years, with the growth and development of the wine industry, the City has become an important business and banking center for the wine industry. The City also receives many visitors as a result of the wine industry and the area’s scenic qualities. The main goal of the City is to maintain a small-town atmosphere and to provide quality services to its citizens.
