- SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES: One of the most important functions of Santa Fe Neighbors is to keep us socially connected. Research on older adults has demonstrated that isolation negatively effects self-confidence, well-being and health. Since all of us are different in our desires for interaction, SFN offers a variety of activities designed to keep us physically active and socially engaged. We offer small group outings to movies, museums, concerts, the opera, and gallery exhibits. We are planning educational lectures, fitness classes, Santa Fe Walks and discussion groups, and will initiate informal social gatherings including dinners out, casual lunches and opportunities to listen to live music or meet fellow SFN members. We urge our members to tell us what activities they would like and we will do everything we can to make it happen.
