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.
Are you ready for some fun? Join us September 8th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the annual HBCOA Senior Saturday Community Festival next to the Huntington Beach Pier. Bring the family and enjoy an outstanding lineup of live entertainment, giveaways, food, and more at this free event. Visit with booths offering free health screenings as well as valuable information on products and services specifically geared to Baby Boomers, the older adult population and their families.
The fun continues in October with the next HBCOA Dinner & Dance on Friday, October 19. Expect delicious food, a great band, and a good time for all. Our dances usually sell out so get your tickets early at the front desk of the Senior Center in Central Park. The Dinner & Dance is open to everyone but, of course, HBCOA members get a discount.
Finally, if you have not taken a look lately at our travel program, we have some exceptional day trips every month. Visit the Travel and Resource Room at the Senior Center for more info, or check the HBCOA website (hbcoa.org) and monthly Outlook for upcoming trips. Let’s get out and get active!
Welcome to the annual Senior Saturday Outlook Special Edition and congratulations to the Huntington Beach Council on Aging for sponsoring this community festival, now in its THIRTIETH year! It started out as a small group of senior Related organizations in the backyard of Rodgers Seniors Center and has grown into a large professional community expo at the historic Huntington Beach pier. Take a look inside this special edition and you can see all of the sponsors who believe that Huntington Beach is a great place to age!
September means back to school – and for the Senior Center in Central Park, it means classes are back in session – dance, yoga, drumming, ukulele, computers, and bridge – this is just a sample of what you will find at the center. Take a look at our Huntington Beach Sands – www.hbsands.org – and sign up for your favorite class. Just a quick look at our calendar and you can also find activities that are free of charge, like our Tuesday Afternoon at the Movies or Longevity Stick on Monday and Wednesday mornings.
Mark your calendars now! Coming up this fall we are partnering with the Assistance League of Huntington Beach for a Fun Fall Fashion Show on Tuesday, November 13.
Have a great time at Senior Saturday, and as always, see you at the movies!
Director, Senior Center in Central Park
