Church makes donation for centenarian event
The Golden Age Foundation (GAF) invites LWers who are turning 100 years old or older this year to sign up for a visit from GAF volunteers, who will give them a gift. The centenarians’ presence in the community are one of the many things that make Leisure World a great place to live. The GAF would like to acknowledge their special day by visiting their home and a special lunch giving them and a family member a gift bag and a smile from one of the GAF volunteers on Wednesday, April 2, between 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
The gift bag includes a centenarian certificate issued by the City of Seal Beach, a bouquet of flowers and a $25 gift card from Sprouts. To sponsor the centenarian event, City of Seal Beach employees participated in a “Jean Thursday” event. Leisure World Korean Community Church (LWKCC) also contributed to the event by donating the $25 Sprouts gift card.
The GAF has paid for and will deliver a special lunch for two. Additionally, the GAF has been working with centenarians’ family members to gather their loved ones stories. Their remarkable life stories will inspire neighbors and friends in LW.
Anyone who is interested in being a sponsor for the centenarian event can contact GAF President Anna Derby at (562) 301-5339 by March 31.
Those who are turning 100 years old or older this year and have not signed up for the centenarian event can call Derby to get on the list.
LWKCC has supported the GAF since it moved to Leisure World in 2017.
LWKCC holds Sunday worship every week at 11:50 a.m. in the main sanctuary. Services are at 6 a.m., Tuesdays–Saturdays.
