HBCOA at the forefront of aging issues
Officially recognized by the City Council of Huntington Beach as representing its local senior citizens, the HBCOA was awarded non-profit status in 1973 and has always been at the forefront of aging issues. During the design stage of the new Senior Center in Central Park, the City Council directed the HBCOA to provide input related to the overall design of the new center.
Welcome to 2018 and what promises to be an exciting year for HBCOA and seniors in our community. Stay up to date with your monthly Outlook newsletter and by visiting our website and Facebook page. In recent news, HBCOA was pleased to present a check to the City for over $228,000 in Visionary funds to support senior programs & services. The Visionary donors who contributed to this fundraising campaign are individuals, organizations and companies who believe in supporting seniors including the programs and services at the Senior Center in Central Park. We thank them for their support.
On behalf of the HBCOA Board, I also want to extend our deep appreciation to Jane Burke and Judy Ann Morris who have each served more than a decade on the HBCOA Board and have shown exemplary dedication to HBCOA and the senior community. Their leadership, guidance and efforts have been invaluable to the organization and the well-being of HB seniors. Jane and Judy are retiring from the Board and have been awarded Honorary Board member status.
The Winter Dance, Seashells & Jingle Bells, was an outstanding evening and a sellout event. Be sure to mark your calendar for the upcoming Valentine’s Day Dance on February 9, and the Valentine’s Lunch on February 14. Let’s get out and get active!
We look ahead to 2018 and wave goodbye to 2017, a tumultuous year, to say the least! We look forward to a new year of opportunity – to grab all the optimism we can and forge ahead. The Senior Center in the park will continue to lead the way in classes, activities, events, dances, luncheons and new ways to age! The Social Services program will maintain its mission of assisting seniors who are aging in place, and fighting to remain independent. The Hoag Health and Wellness Pavilion will continue to bring you the cutting edge in senior fitness and also welcomes Silver Sneakers© members!
Tuesday Afternoon at the Movies will continue to bring you the latest in cinema. We will also partner with HB Reads, encouraging the community to read Regina Calcaterra’s phenomenal book, Etched in Sand, a story about family homelessness. The Senior Center in Central Park will also finally be complete - artist Martin Webb will install the Center’s much awaited public art – to be located in the back of the center. The Senior Center will welcome a new volunteer coordinator, as we bid adieu to our wonderful Teri Simonis. On behalf of the staff, we wish you a very Happy New Year!
