You're never too old to pick up a new skill or hobby. 

A group of Carmichael seniors between the ages of 79-98 have been meeting every Wednesday for the last month at Carmichael Oaks to learn sign language. 

Their story was highlighted in Valley Community Newspapers this week. The class is taught by 82-year-old Ginger White, who is deaf.
