Let’s Go…

We know that many of our members and volunteers enjoy attending music performances, theater, lectures, etc.  If someone suggests, Let’s Go… San Rafael Village now offers a way for this to happen.

We have begun a list of SRV members and volunteers interested in attending events in our community. When you add your name, your contact information, and note your particular areas of interest, it is shared with all the others on the list. Then, when you come across an event, such as a concert that you would like to attend, you can contact those on the list with similar interests. The arrangements are made between the individuals.


If you’d like to be included on the Let’s Go list, or have any questions, contact Carole Sherick at or 415-479-0930.
