On May 15, the GRF Board of Directors approved the reopening of some of the outdoor facilities, under the required COVID-19 guidelines. The Golf course and the putting green are now open as are Veterans Plaza by reservation only for qualifying exercise clubs.
While some restrictions may seem cumbersome, GRF’s priority will always be the safety of its members.

A Message from GRF Executive Director Randy Ankeny
Daily, Orange County Heath updates the number of known COVID-19 cases in Seal Beach and sadly the numbers continue to grow.
As we hear of business slowly beginning to reopen, we must remain committed in our collective fight as we are still facing a global health crisis, one that is killing people, spreading human suffering, upending people’s lives and has fundamentally changed the very essence of the core of our community, social interaction.
Now, amid the ongoing unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, the world around us has been shaken as some take advantage of personal expression and peaceful protest for personal gain. I offer a simple message of solidarity and support to all community members and fellow inhabitants of the earth we share.
We are learning what a global pandemic requires of us and are enduring. But it is difficult for everyone, particularly difficult as we now have to physically distance ourselves and live behind masks.
Difficult for each of us as COVID-19 has impacted all of us to some degree, emotionally, practically, financially.
And terribly difficult for family, friends and neighbors, who may have lost their jobs and children now not able to enjoy the benefits of school, and the social interaction of being with their classmates.
Difficult when you hear and see personal stories of the uncertainties of the future ahead.
Difficult for every one of us striving to make wise decisions with compassion for each unique individual around us and care for our community, your fellow shareholders and the world we all share.
I see this community—you and your fellow shareholders—showing great strength in a time that requires collective and mutual support.
Daily, I see and hear stories of shareholders working to reassure each other, seeking a sensible path in working through the challenges amid a pandemic and now the added stress of seeing those who take advantage of peaceful demonstration for personal gain.
The COVID-19 future remains ambiguous. I am certain that based on the growing number of reported cases of COVID-19 in Seal Beach (as of Monday, 28 cases within a population of 25,073) the current dramatic disruptions of masks and distancing are necessary measures to help prevent the spread of this disease, which still presents a growing danger.
I see the sacrifices required from all of you for the greater good —and I am deeply proud and grateful to be a part of a community that has responded with such grace, understanding and, of the utmost importance, mutual respect for each other.
Thank you for your efforts—for following all health, safety and physical distancing guidelines and respecting each other—and thereby collectively making an enormous contribution to win this high-stakes battle for public health, social awareness and the work environment and world we share.
The coming weeks are likely to bring new and unpredictable difficulties, including possibilities of real health consequences for people we know and love.
May we all strive to keep one another close despite the unaccustomed physical distance and take strength in knowing that we will get through this historic challenge together.
With gratitude and admiration,
GRF Executive Director

Sound wall to be removed
Crews are scheduled to remove a portion of the sound wall adjacent to North Gate Road in the coming days.
The project is part of the I-405 Improvement Project, which includes the replacement of several sound walls along the 16-mile construction zone.
This work will take place west of the fire station and was scheduled to begin as early as June 5, with hours of operation between 7 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays for approximately two weeks.
There will be noise on North Gate road as the project calls for K railing to be installed adjacent to the wall there. Demolition of the wall will start shortly after K rails are placed.
Sound blankets will be installed on the safety fencing within 30 days of the wall’s removal.
During that time more noise from the highway is anticipated.
In addition to the daytime work, demolished material will be loaded out at night, from 10 p.m.-5 a.m.
Dates and times may change due to unforeseen operational factors or inclement weather. Building the replacement wall will take approximately 18 months.
For specific information on the soundwall, contact (888) 400-8994 or email email@example.com.

Thank You Area Churches
Leisure World Seal Beach has been fortunate to be the recipient of care packages and meals from a couple of Orange County-area churches during the last couple of months. GRF Member Resource Liaison Cindy Tostado would like to express her gratitude on behalf of the LW community for their kind support.
• Calvary Chapel of the Harbour, Pastor Joe Pedick, (562) 592-1800, reached out to offer care packages to LW members struggling to get out and obtain basic supplies of non-perishables and paper goods.
Several of LW members benefited from this act of kindness. To receive a care package if in dire need, contact Calvary Chapel directly.
• Prepared meals have also been a comfort to part of the LW community.
Resurrection Lutheran Church of Huntington Beach’s Rev. Jim Pike formed a partnership with Waste Not OC Coalition to have vacuum-packed meals ready for seniors needing food and unable to get to the store.
Some LW members benefitted from this new non-profit and were linked through Redeemer Lutheran Church, Leisure World Assembly of God and GRF Member Resource Liaison Cindy Tostado.
“We are so grateful for your kindness and support,” she said.
Mask give-away is Friday
Golden Age Foundation will host its second giveaway of washable face masks from 2-3:30 p.m. on Friday, June 12, at Veterans Plaza between Clubhouse 3 and the LW Library.
Each resident will receive one packet on a first-come, first-served basis.
People will be required to wear face coverings, whether a mask or scarf, and stay six-feet apart while in line.
The line should not form before 1:30 p.m.
This is the second mask give-away hosted by the GAF in an effort to help shareholders protect themselves and others from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The first giveaway was held on May 15, which distributed over 650 face masks made by fellow neighbors.
More than 500 cloth masks will be handed out tomorrow.
The Golden Age Foundation and Diana Harrison, who co-chaired the mask project with Anna Derby, oversaw the effort. About 45 volunteers made more than 1,000 masks.
Volunteers served as sewers, fabric and elastic cutters and runners to get supplies to volunteers.
The Golden Age Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization dedicated to serving Leisure World shareholders.
Its purpose is to make the community a better place in which to live.
Because Golden Age Foundation has been certified as a nonprofit organization by the Internal Revenue Service, contributions made to it qualify for exemption from income taxes, in most cases.

Perspectives Page 4
Lucille Martin of Mutual 15 received a call on her cell phone last week from a 626 number she did not recognize.
But it had the same prefix as her cell phone number.
“Since I did not recognize the caller, I did not answer,” she said, but she did listen to the message left by the caller as she thought might be important.
A very professional-sounding male voice stated “This is Southern California Edison Company. We want to advise you that your power will be disconnected in 30 minutes due to a pending balance on your bill. To avoid a power disconnection, call 1-800-659-2862 and press 1 to speak to a representative.”
“I thought, this is a mistake,” she said. “I have always paid my bill on time. I used my cell phone to dial the 800 number and pressed 1.
“A man with a heavy accent answered. I explained. He asked for my phone number so that he could pull up my account. I gave him my home number. He said he needed to verify that it was my account and asked for my name. I asked what name he had on the account.
“He had great difficulty pronouncing my name. I told him I felt this was a scam and hung up.”
Her power has not been disconnected. And that’s because it was a scam. Southern California Edison reports that scammers continue to target utility customers.
Typically, they pose as utility “collection” employees and threaten to disconnect electricity service unless a payment is made immediately using a pre-paid cash card. This is a scam. The company doesn’t want you to fall victim to it.
Residential customers may call SoCal Edison if they have questions about their bills at 1-800-655-4555.
The company doesn’t accept pre-paid cash cards. If you get a phone call demanding money using a pre-paid cash card, it’s a scam. Hang up and call the police.
Edison employees always have their SCE Photo ID badge and wear a company uniform.
Their vehicles have permanent SCE logos on them.
• SCE will never call to demand immediate payment with the threat of service disconnection.
• It does not have a disconnection department.
• It does not accept pre-paid cash cards for bill payments ever.
• An SCE employee will never ask for cash in person.
• SCE will never conduct credit transactions on weekends or holidays.
What to Do if a Scammer Contacts You
If you suspect a phone call, email or personal visit is fraudulent, remember:
• Never reveal personal information to anyone, including your SCE Account information, credit card, ATM or calling card number (or PIN number)
• Never use the call-back number provided by an unknown caller to verify billing information
• Ask for the caller’s name, department and business phone number
• End the call or interaction and report the incident to your local law enforcement.
Two Additional Reminders for Residential Customers
• If someone calls and asks you to leave your residence at a specific time for a “utility-related” cause, call the police. This could be a burglary attempt set up by the caller.
• Be suspicious of anyone who arrives at your house without an appointment asking to check your appliances or wiring, or suggesting that there may be some other electrical problem inside or outside your residence.
Letter to the Editor
Sometime in the late evening or early morning hours of May 21 and again on May 23, two of recently placed “Welcome to Mutual Two” signs were vandalized by someone throwing eggs.
They are located at the corner where Church Place meets Thunderbird Drive, and the intersection of Thunderbird Drive and Merion Way.
While damage was minimal and the signs were cleaned, it was still a shock for Mutual 2 shareholders. We are very proud of these new signs.
We are asking all Leisure World shareholders to be aware this sort of activity happens in our community. If any unusual activity is seen or heard by any Leisure World resident, please alert the Security Department immediately.
As a reminder, Leisure World shareholders are responsible for the actions of their guests and visitors.
Submissions in each of the following categories may be published at the discretion of the Communications and Technical Director.
Letters to the Editor: Maximum number of words: 250. Letters should be typed and delivered to LW Weekly by email preferred), regular mail, deposited in a white GRF drop box, or hand-delivered. Letters must be of general interest to the community and may contain opinions, suggestions, compliments and complaints without being scurrilous, libelous, defamatory, repetitive or otherwise inappropriate. The names of individual employees, titles and/or departments will not be permitted in letters that could adversely impact any Foundation employee directly or indirectly.
Member Column: At a maximum 500 words, columns may present an argument, opinion or information about pending issues of concern to the community. Priority to first-time or less frequent writers. Some names will be left out to protect privacy.
Contributor: Restaurant review, theater review or travel journal submissions welcome.
Box Tops for Education Offered
Box Tops for Education is an easy way for families to earn cash for their schools by clipping the familar logo off products they already buy. Someone left hundreds of Boxtops at the home of KipWatkins of Mutual 3, probably accidentally.
Every Box Tops clip is worth 10¢ for an area school and Kip would like to get the Box Tops to the right person or offer them to someone who could use them. For more information, call (562) 598-7232.

Rolling Thunder Air and Water Day
by Mike Levitt
In an attempt to return a touch of normalcy to Leisure World — and continue to provide a vital service to this community —the Rollin’ Thunder Golf Cart Club held its first Air&Water cart maintenance event since COVID-19 locked up “our town” tighter than a clam at high tide.
When the last cart had hummed its way out of the maintenance area, a new high had been set for the number of carts serviced.
The June 6 event had been relocated to the Clubhouse 4 parking lot where sufficient space existed to maintain safe distancing. Eighteen Club members — all in masks and shields—volunteered to work, adjusting tire pressure, filling batteries with distilled water and checking for safety issues.
LW Security provided two staff members to help ensure traffic and pedestrian safety.
To the amazement of all, the usual number of carts, 60-70, was quickly surpassed. In just two hours, more than 90 carts and scooters had been serviced.
“I want to thank all of the folks who drove their carts to our event,” Club President Tom Davis said. “They all wore masks, and followed our rules on safe distancing. This protected our club volunteers as well as the cart owners. And Security did a spectular job helping to protect our residents.”
Wishing to make this A&W Day even more special, Alpine Home Medical, located in the Leisure World Shopping Center, donated 50 masks for cart owners’ protection.
The next Air&Water Day is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 5, if weather and safety guidelines permit. The location of this quarterly event will be announced in the Aug. 26 edition of the LW Weekly.
First Christian Church
By Bruce Humes
David was King of Israel from 1010-970 B.C. In his rise to that kingship, he encountered many hardships and opposition from enemies outside Israel and his countrymen. During this time David wrote many psalms in the form of prayers, such as Psalm 27. He starts out in verse one saying, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Notice David’s use of “my” and “I” in this prayer; this is a personal prayer of David to God. Perhaps it should be our prayer to God also.
David recognizes that the Lord is his salvation. The apostle John in chapter 3:16 of his gospel states this, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” This is probably the most quoted scripture in God’s word, and I pray that each of us take time to understand the love story that it contains. The salvation that David spoke of, and salvation John shared with us concerning God’s love for all mankind, that he gave his only begotten son so that all who believe would not perish, which means those who don’t believe will perish. Both David and John recognize the source of their salvation.
After pleading with the Lord three times to remove a thorn in his flesh, the apostle Paul got this response from the Lord in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And He said to me, my grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Both David and Paul recognize that the Lord’s strength is what gets them through life even in their weakness. I ask, do we rely on the Lord’s strength rather than our own?
Because he is our light, salvation and strength the question concerning whom we should fear is answered with a resounding “no one or anything.” Let us look at David’s prayer through verse 6 understanding that the Lord is our light, salvation, and strength. “When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes they stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this I will be confident. One thing I have desired of the Lord, that which I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.“
Just as David gave this prayer in his time of trouble, we should also give this prayer in our time of troubles.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
by Jim Greer
Nearly a year ago, at the 110th annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Detroit, Russell M. Nelson, president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the Rev. Amos C. Brown, pastor of the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco, made significant statements that are as poignant today as they were then.
Rev.Brown reminded us if we don’t “live together as brothers and sisters, as my teacher Martin Luther King so eloquently said, ‘We will all perish as fools.’ We need each other. We should not turn on each other in these difficult times. We should turn to each other.”
President Nelson affirmed that, “we are brothers and sisters, all part of the same divine family. Simply stated, we strive to build bridges of cooperation rather than walls of segregation. Black and white, bond and free, male and female — all are alike unto God.
“We don’t have to be alike or look alike to have love for each other. We don’t even have to agree with each other to love each other. If we have any hope of reclaiming the goodwill and sense of humanity for which we yearn, it must begin with each of us, one person at a time.”
In response to the most recent demonstrations and riots following the death of George Floyd, President Nelson pleaded with us “to work together for peace, for mutual respect, and for an outpouring of love for all of God’s children.”
And, in statements released via social media President Nelson asked all of us to, “join with many throughout this nation and around the world who are deeply saddened at recent evidences of racism and a blatant disregard for human life. We abhor the reality that some would deny others respect and the most basic of freedoms because of the color of his or her skin.
“The creator of us all calls on each of us to abandon attitudes of prejudice against any group of God’s children. Any of us who has prejudice toward another race needs to repent!”
President Nelson reminds us, “We are brothers and sisters, each of us the child of a loving Father in Heaven. His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, invites all to come unto Him—” black and white, bond and free, male and female,” (2 Nephi 26:33).
“We need to foster our faith in the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. We need to foster a fundamental respect for the human dignity of every human soul, regardless of their color, creed, or cause. And we need to work tirelessly to build bridges of understanding rather than creating walls of segregation.
In closing his social media posting, President Nelson concluded, “I plead with us to work together for peace, for mutual respect, and for an outpouring of love for all of God’s children.”
Redeemer Lutheran & St. Theodore’s
By Lisa Rotchford
Jesus Christ’s message of “peace be with you” is delivered more than any other throughout his post-resurrection appearances as recorded in the Bible. Jesus’ teachings remind us that God’s peace can reign even as ways of this world seem to be the polar opposite of peace. Especially in this unique time of pandemic and national unrest, let us also be reminded of one of the central messages of Jesus: do not fear.
Christ’s peace can reign in our spirits in any situation. God literally came into this world to teach us how to settle our hearts, minds and souls with the message of God’s eternal love and peace.
As people called to love one another, our hearts are empathetic to all who hurt. We are called to bear one another’s burdens. As people who are called to love one another as God loves us, we can embrace one another not physically at this time, but spiritually through prayer.
Our Scriptures remind us in multiple ways, nothing is impossible with God. Called to spend more “quiet” time at home, perhaps we are also called to pray for more peace and less strife. Pray for more hope and less despair. Seek more time to sit with the Lord, read the Holy Scriptures and listen for God’s presence in your life and worry less. Let our lives reflect peace in all that we pray, in all that we say, in all that we do.
By Rolland Coburn
How amazing are our Lord’s words, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.” “The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6) is one of our Lord’s names. The angels’ message at Jesus’ birth was, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men” (Luke 2:14). When the Prince of Peace rules in every heart, there will be peace on earth. We know sin’s ravaging effects in our world. Sin infects and affects the whole human race. Sin is the plague of plagues and claims the life of every human being. And Jesus has provided the only cure.
Zechariah 9:10 foretold, “He shall speak peace to the nations.” Isaiah 53:5 said how this would be, “He was pierced through for our transgressions . . . bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon him.” That is why it is said, “How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace,” (Romans 10:15). He “made peace through the blood of his cross” (Colossians 1:20). “He himself is our peace, who made the two groups one and broke down the barrier, the dividing wall . . . to reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility” (Ephesians 2:14,16).
Thus he taught us to pray for peace for our community and nation. “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” (2 Chronincles 7:14). Prayer must begin with ourselves.
We also must pray for our leaders. “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases our Savior God, who wants all people to be saved and to come to fuller knowledge of the truth” (1 Timmothy 2:1-4).
The words, “all people,” point us to pray for others that they may see we all need the Lord individually, and see that together we all need him corporately as a nation. We all need a new heart. To the peacemakers, our Lord has promised, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid,” (John 14:24). “And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace,” (James 3:18).
Beit HaLev is “Zooming!” The Cyber-Shul is now conducting all services on Zoom, the program that allows participants to interact visually and with audio (participants can be seen and heard – or not, based on their preference) as well as chat.

The Torah reading, “Naso,” is from the Book of Numbers 4:21-7:89. It is the longest parashah in the Torah. The focus of this portion is purity and it includes a description of a bizarre – and now defunct – rite: the “sota,” the woman accused by her husband of adultery, who must perform a disgusting ritual to prove or disprove her sin. In another section, the “nazirim,” men and women who dedicate themselves to God with even more intensity than the rest of the Israelite society.

As I write this from the eastern corner of Long Beach just above Los Alamitos, we are under our fourth night of curfew and lockdown. For the last several days reports have come over from the social media site, Next-door, that my neighborhood is being targeted for looting. In these tryinag times it is all too easy to look at the news and judge “them.” What are “they” doing? Why are “they” being so destructive? It is in times of great societal shift we have the opportunity to become better human beings.
I remember having a conversation many years ago with a friend who is now an attorney about the idea that there is no “them.” I kept insisting that “there is only us.” And we would go around and around — and of course, to a certain extent he is right, the word “them” exists. The word “they” exists. And we don’t talk about people as “us,” we talk about “them.” From our first moments as children, we learn that we are not our mothers and that we are separate from our mothers. But that realization is also a lie that we tell ourselves because we are connected to our mothers. We are connected to our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We know this connection, we experience it and in the midst of spatial distancing we miss this connection terribly. What is more difficult for us to do is live as Jesus lived—to do what God created us to do—which is to see everyone as we see our family members. The invitation to be God’s love is what Jesus came to teach us—that God is love is the good news that Jesus came to share.
When you read or watch the news, when you see reports of protests and looting are you judging “them” or are you asking yourself where have we gone wrong? What can we do differently?
We may have been happy with the way things were, but for a host of reasons we are now in a new normal. We can’t go back to what was, so if we are going to make a new normal out of where we find ourselves now — let us choose “the good news.” Let us choose God’s love as the foundation upon which we see the world around us. Equity for all of God people and all of God’s creation. The opportunity is before us.
With the move to online worship and fewer ministries taking place in the facility, the church has continued its mission by moving into homes — worship is on Facebook and fellowship will soon be on Zoom, but it is from our homes that the work of the church is currently taking place. The building is still closed and members are waiting to celebrate the reopening in a grand fashion, but until then, the church was never closed and if anything, it has only become closer and more active.
As always, if you are in need without another way to address that need, call the church office to leave a message at (562) 431-2503.
I invite you to tune into worship Sunday morning at 9:50 on Facebook live, @communitychurchleisureworld. If you don’t have a computer or Facebook, you can still call in to our phone system — (562) 431-2503 — and listen to the weekly message beginning Sunday evening.
Faith Christian Assembly
There is a song that has taken on a new meaning for the members of Faith Christian Assembly after the pandemic.

Assembly of God
By Norma Ballinger
June 14 is Flag Day. It was first established June 14, 1777, by the Second Continental Congress with the first formal observance led by school teacher Bernard Cigrand in Wisconsin. What do we do on Flag Day now and what similarities are there to our Christian faith?
As we display a flag outside our homes, we are signifying that we support our country regardless of present conflicts and differing opinions. As believers, our banner is God himself. Banners (flags) are displayed in remembrance, to be seen, to attract bypassers, to indicate our allegiance to our country and to honor God’s faithfulness.
The colors in the U.S. flag are symbolic also of our faith:
Red represents hardiness and valor. James 1:2-4 reminds us that there is joy through testing and that God is more concerned about our growth than our comfort. He is with us! Testing only makes us stronger, as a nation and as Christians.
White signifies purity and innocence. Read Matthew 5:8 in the Sermon on the Mount.There should be no malice or evil intent, rather honesty and sincerity.
The blue stands for vigilance, perseverance and justice. Run the race of faith fervently and diligently to the finish.
Song of Solomon 2:4 says, “He has brought me to his banquet hall and his banner over me is love.” Our Lord’s message is to loudly and publicly proclaim that he is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The message of displaying the flag is proclaiming that we stand by its meaning.
The videotapes of Pastor Sam Pawlak’s weekly messages are appreciated by all that receive these the following day. The small team that meets to make this possible is privileged to minister this way. Pastor Sam’s weekly devotion on Facebook at 10 a.m. on Sunday continues to reach many throughout Leisure World and beyond.
Holy Family Catholic Church
by Juan Caboboy
The Diocese of Orange announced that public celebration of Mass can begin in Orange County on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, Sunday, June 14 (including the Saturday, June 13, Vigil Mass). Everyone will still need to observe the guidelines on social distancing to protect everyone. Bishop Kevin Vann extends a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation until such time as it is deemed safe to have large gatherings at Mass.
There will be a limited number of parishioners allowed in the church at each Mass and the maximum number of attendees is 100. The same schedule is the same for weekday and weekend masses (www.holyfamilysb.com). I am looking forward to welcoming you all.
For the safety of everyone who comes to church we need to observe the following:
Follow strict guidelines for social distancing and sanitization.
Those with underlying health conditions are encouraged to consider not returning to Mass yet.
Anyone showing symptoms of illness, or anyone who has a household member who is sick or showing symptoms of illness, should not come to church.
The church will be sanitized/cleaned after each service. Holy water fonts will remain empty.
All local safety orders specifically relating to proper face coverings or masks will be followed.
Parishioners will be instructed to not engage in any physical touch, such as greeting one another. The sign of peace at mass will be suspended.
Ushers will lead you to your seats when you come in at the front door. I encourage one household to sit together in the front pews.
When you come up for Holy Communion you need to remove your face mask and observe the six-feet distance to the person in front of you in the line. The usher will give you a sign when to come to the center isle to join the line for Holy Communion.
The ushers will have the offertory baskets at the door as you exit after mass and you can pick up a copy of the parish bulletin at the door. We will be using side doors near the altar for exists at the end of the mass.
When the church is vacated, people who are interested can help the ushers in wiping or sanitizing the pews.
Feeling down? Have a need for prayer? Maybe a desire for a spiritual guide at this time? Or maybe just want to pray with someone? Call the Spiritual Guidance and Prayer Helpline to talk and pray with a religious, priest, deacon or other lay spiritual guides. Call (844) 279-0105, press 3 for English; 4 for Spanish and 5 for Vietnamese.
Flag Day is Sunday, June 14
The Leisure World Republican club suggests that those who missed the anniversary of D-Day on June 6 should consider observing Flag Day on June 14 by flying the stars and stripes and learning about its origin.
National Flag Day was officially proclaimed by Woodrow Wilson in 1916. Although people in Hartford, Connecticut, started celebrating Flag Day as early as1861, the idea of a national Flag Day came from a small-town Wisconsin teacher named Bernard Cigrand in 1885 and was celebrated on June 14 unofficially for the next 31 years. The date June 14 was chosen because the American flag was first adopted on that date in 1777 by the Second Continental Congress.
The U.S. Army also celebrates its birthday on this date. In 1775, Congress adopted what they called “the American continental army” on June 14. Coincidentally, this is the same date as the approval of the California Republic bear flag revolt in California in 1846.
Flying the flag does not mean that a person believes in everything the United States does, but it does show support for the values that America stands for. It also shows respect for those who worked hard and sacrificed so much to protect our nation and defend our freedom.
Rich Carson, president of the LW American Legion, suggests that those wanting to help homeless veterans, can support the Orange County Rescue Mission. Its number is (800) 663-3074.

Club members hope to have travel adventures once again
Edward Hickman, president of the Traveling Tigers club, wants members to stay tuned to the LW News for the latest official return date to our Clubhouses. Susan Shaver, vice president of programming, has a plan in motion for when the club resumes its meeting.
Edward was one of the nine members who recently toured five of the 7,642 islands of the Philippines that has been recapped in previous issues of LW Weekly. He is pictured on the island of Bohol, with the Chocolate Hills, consisting of at least 1268 haycock hills. The dome shaped grass-covered limestone hills dry up and turn brown during the summer, thus giving it the name Chocolate Hills.
Edward climbed 214 steps to a platform to view one of nature’s wonders. Bohol is also home to the world’s smallest monkey .
Editor’s note: For the next few weeks the community section will highlight past trips from community members. All trips were taken before the stay-at-home orders were in place. LW Weekly and the Traveling Tigers club does not encourage traveling at this time, but looks forward to when everyone can explore new places with friends once again.
Calling for submissions
Since most people are not eating out right now, many people have used the opportunity to sharpen their home cooking skills.
Do you have a favorite recipe that is is requested at every party or event? Have you finally mastered a once-intimidating recipe during quarantine? Or are you needing some inspiration to start cooking new meals for you and your household?
Share your favorite recipe with your neighbors by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with photos attached as jpeg files.
Opportunities to sew are still available
Diana Harrison wanted to thank the Golden Age Foundation and everyone else who has helped make masks for the community through either monatary, material, or time donations. There is still opportunites for those who want to sew masks for those in the community who still need one, Diana said.
Shareholders who need masks or are willing to sew, should contact Sharon Kohnat (562) 596-1969.
Some residents of Leisure World continue to meet to meet virtually. Koeng Ho Chong and his friends have a “Zoom Club,” that started in April with just a few people and has now grown to include 16 homes. The Zoom Club members talk about COVID-19, the unrest from the death of George Floyd, health issues and local news, It is a casual converstation format where everyone is free to speak as they wish. Some people like to initiate and speak more directly, while the other would rather stay quiet. The group hopes to make the subject of the next conversation different kinds of art such as music and painting.
Miki Oh has been staying with her dad, Michael Oh from Mutual 1, during six weeks of rehab after recovering from a bike accident. On Memorial Day, they were invited to have a socially distant dinner on the patio at Anna Derby’s Mutual 5 home. Anna decorated her sidewalk with flags to honor veterans who fought to save many lives. She puts the flags out for neighbors enjoy twice a year on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
Enjoying the results of hard work
Anna Derby, from Mutual 5 finds enjoyment even in working in her plot at the Minifarm. She says it helps her forget about all the anxiety and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis.
Anna planted carrots seeds on the last day of February, thinking it would take few months to grow, but a month later, it showing signs of being fully grown and ready to be havested. She decided to wait a little bit longer and the results were huge! She says that there’s nothing like eating vegtables she grew right out of the farm and it has been wonderful to have a plot. She can’t wait to harvest the zucchini, brussels sprouts, tomatoes and Korean yul mu this summer.
The Democratic Club wanted to address the past week’s unrest and how to continue to move forward in dismantling racism. Club member Geneva Potepan shared a post that had been forwarded to her by a member of her extended family. Her parents were also members of the Democratic Club in the 1990s and had been once named Democrats of the Year.
The following is printed verbatim from the post, titled “Dismantling Racism.”
“For my friends who are not sure what to do to make progress in dismantling racism, here is what I am doing in addition to specifically praying for guidance on how to proceed:
1. I am white. If I want to be in active solidarity with people of color, I have to listen to them. I am willing to be led in the movements for racial equality.
2. I must be willing to have the self-examination of my own privilege and remnants of racism wherever I might spot them in my own self. It is really hard to see one’s own biases and habits.
3. I have conversations about white privilege every day. These are tough conversations. Do not be put off by off-handed dismissals of “political correctness.” That is code for “I refuse to do the homework.” Have the conversations with the children in your life.
4. In particular, the legacy of chattel slavery is the continued economic and social oppression of black Americans, which is why we must not be afraid to say Black Lives Matter. I say it as often as possible because it is specifically the black lives in America that are being systematically treated as if they don’t matter.
5. I’m getting faster at writing to legislators with my opinions and ideas for legislative relief. If you don’t know who your legislators are, ask Google who they are for your address.
6. Within my purview as a Jesus follower and a pastor, I call out racist comments when I hear them. Yes, I get it that it bothers some of you, but it’s a matter of life and death, and my baptismal covenant demands fidelity. This includes racist actions. See #5 above; writing legislators and media pundits who say racist things is also good.
7. I am unafraid to hear someone’s rage without trying to “fix it” and say “It will be ok.” It’s really hard but it’s a skill that can be developed. This is not my moment to rage, but to act, so that’s what I am trying to do. This is my plan of action, maybe yours will be different, but know that unless we all take some steps to mitigate racial injustice, nothing will change. We can do this, but only if we are willing to do so. I am.”

James Duke Harris
Feb.1930 – June 2020
James Duke Harris was born Feb. 18, 1930, in Big Spring, Texas. He graduated in 1948 from Dumas High School and then joined the Navy after some college. While he was still in the Navy out in Long Beach, California, he met his future wife, Alice M. Kachelmeyer. On their way back to Texas, they got married in Quartzite, Arizona, in January of 1953, and they then lived in Big Spring, Texas, for over a year where their first child, Diana K. Harris (Hudson), was born in the same hospital as James (then known as ‘Jim’), in 1954.
They returned to Long Beach, California, where their son, Michael D. Harris, was born in 1956. They then purchased their first home in Lakewood, California, where the second daughter, Toni J. Harris(Olson), was born in 1958. Following that, their third daughter, Janice M. Harris(Scott) was born in 1960. Throughout James’ life, he always loved racing. He first raced cars, then go-karts for 10 years, mostly at Adams Kart Track in Riverside, where the whole family also raced. From go-karts, he went to dirt bikes (motocross) and was in the class for those over 40 (Oldtimers). James always lived in the Lakewood, Long Beach and Seal Beach area since he came out to California. He enjoyed free-diving in Seal Beach in the 1950s, when seals actually sunbathed there.
When he moved to Leisure World, about eight years ago, he was already active in the Western Swing dancing, and even served as club president for one year. He loved dancing and even gave lessons. He played tennis doubles until his knee went out (while downhill skiing racing in his fifties!) and then took up pickleball after a knee replacement, where he won a championship in his age group. He was an avid physical fitness guy. James, known as “Duke” in his later years, was always friendly and kept a positive outlook. He lived a simple and humble life, and was surrounded by pictures of his grandchildren when he passed in his sleep in the early morning of May 24, 2020. We all thought he would make 100, as a given, so it was a big surprise that he left us at 90! He was loved so very much, and he will be missed by many.
He is survived by his four children mentioned, 10 grandchildren, Hazel, Steve, James, Deanna, Cody, Travis, Chelsea, Victoria, Kari, and Laura, and seven great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He also was preceded in death by a sibling who died in infancy, two grandchildren, David, who was also a champion in the Special Olympics, and Katrina, who died in infancy.
He also leaves many cousins in the great state of Texas and beyond, that were like siblings, as he was an only child due to the RH factor.

Creating a healthy sleep routine
It’s 3:03 in the morning, and you’re awake. You’ve been watching the minutes pass by for some time now. You don’t know if you will be able to fall back asleep.
Sleep problems affect everyone. But if you’re often having trouble sleeping, it becomes something more than frustrating. Sleep problems can increase your risk for chronic conditions, like depression, diabetes, and heart disease. Poor sleep has also been linked to memory problems and falls.
Here are some tips to create a healthy sleep routine:
Make a routine. Go to bed at the same time every night. Get up at the same time every morning. Even if you can’t sleep or are groggy when you wake up, stick to your routine. And that includes weekends.
Relax first. Help your body and mind get ready for bed. At least 30 minutes before your bedtime, do something to relax by reading a book, meditating, listening to calm music. Avoid watching TV or using your phone or tablet, though. The light from those screens can make it harder to sleep.
Naps are great, but… An afternoon or evening nap might feel good at the time, but it can throw your sleep schedule off. Feeling a little tired during the day? Go for a walk or do something physical. If you do need to rest, try to keep your nap to just 20 minutes.
Avoid sleep medications if possible. Sleeping medications, like Ambien or Lunesta, can put you at greater risk for falls and confusion. If you’re having trouble sleeping, talk to your primary care doctor. There may be safer alternatives you can try.
If you find yourself awake in the middle of the night, and you can’t fall back asleep, get up. Fold laundry, read, meditate – do something that doesn’t require much energy. When you feel tired, go back to bed.
Getting into a sleep habit takes time, but keep at it. A healthy night’s sleep can make for a healthy day. If you’re still having a difficult time falling or staying asleep, bring it up at the next appointment with your primary care doctor.
One more tip: turn that alarm clock around. Falling back to sleep is a challenge, but watching the minutes tick by can make it harder.
– Carson Blomquist
How to set a fitness goal
Many people find that having a firm goal in mind motivates them to accomplish their fitness goal. It’s important to review your goals regularly as you make progress or your priorities change.
Write Down Your
Short-Term Fitness Goals
Short-term goals will help you make physical activity a regular part of your daily life. For these goals, think about the things you’ll need to get or do in order to be physically active. For example, you may need to buy walking shoes or download an activity tracker. Write down a goal you can start today, do tomorrow, and accomplish by the end of the week.
Write Down Your
For long-term goals, focus on where you want to be in six months, a year, or two years from now. These goals also should be realistic, personal, and important to you. Here are a few examples:
By this time next year, I will swim one mile three times a week.
Next summer, I will be able to play pitch and catch with my grandchildren.
In six months, I will have my blood pressure under control by increasing my physical activity and following my doctor’s advice.

Looking for someone with $25,000 hid under their mattress. I have 2 hot new plastic products scheduled to go on national T. V. within the next 60 days. The high speed plastic injection molds are finished and in production. The patents are granted. The money is basically needed for product production, packaging and improved art work and shipping. You can have fun and make a lot of money in a hurry. They are talking about selling over 15 million to start. Your investment will be returned. You can become involved in the project if you have the time. I’m a senior and naval veteran (destroyers).
