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.
November is a time to think about what we are grateful for and the HBCOA wants to send a special shout out to the Senior Center volunteers. These wonderful individuals are so giving of their time and the HBCOA is proud to support them. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. Contact the Senior Center in Central Park if you would like to join the team and become a volunteer.
Get ready to ring in the holidays with the Seashells and Jingle Bells winter dance on December 8, hosted by HBCOA and Senior Center In Central Park. This will be a festive evening with a cocktail hour followed by a delicious dinner and dancing to live music. We invite you to join us. Tickets are available at the front desk of the Senior Center. Mark your calendar for the HBCOA lunch and membership meeting on Friday, December 14, at the Senior Center.
We have more fun and exciting plans for 2019. Stay up to date on activities and events with the HBCOA newsletter “Outlook on Active Aging” delivered every month to the mailbox of HBCOA members. Membership levels start at just $15, and members enjoy discounts throughout the year on travel, dances & other activities. Let’s get out and get active!
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I would like to take a moment to celebrate just all we have to be thankful for this season. There is this beautiful center and the many opportunities we have for active aging. We have seen great success in a thriving fitness center, wonderful classes and exciting lectures. Finally we are grateful to offer a wide range of support services to the older adults of this community including transportation and home delivered meals.
We have several noteworthy events coming up this holiday season. The Fall Fashion Show and Boutique with the Assistance League is on Tuesday, November 13th. Please come out and support the Assistance Leagues endeavors with a $10 ticket purchase. Enjoy refreshments, fun fashion finds, and the opportunity to shop from the Assistance League store right in our Lounge. SeniorServ will celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with a Giving Thanks Brunch on Wednesday November 21st and the HBCOA will host a December membership luncheon on Friday, December 14th featuring holiday entertainment, food and fun.
The 2nd Annual Seashells and Jingle Bells Winter Dance is just around the corner. Held on Saturday, December 8th from 6-10pm, the HBCOA along with the Senior Center is thrilled to host this special evening. Dance the night away with the sounds of “the Smokin’ Cobras”, a smash hit from the July Summer Concert, and enjoy a fabulous evening of appetizers, dinner, drinks, dessert and so much more. We could not host this event without the support of our partners, Memorial Care Orange Coast Medical Center, and Memorial Care Medical Group. Thank you for your sponsorship! You can purchase your tickets today at the front desk, limited tickets available. Many opportunities are available at the Senior Center in Central Park for active aging, friendship, and community. Join me in celebrating the opportunity to age well in a community we love!
