The Leisure World Sunshine Club began classes to get the best out of living in Leisure World by getting information from weekly GRF newspaper. Many residents read the community information resource and miss many beneficial news items.
As Leisure World residents, organizers consider the “GR News” as a treasure of information on activities, various events, beneficial classes and opportunity to learn about different cultures that enhances living here. The News also provides opportunities to learn about GRF rules and regulations. The class uses the weekly GRF News as text book and goes over news, general columns, the minutes of monthly mutual meetings, the minutes of monthly Board of Directors meetings, etc.
The Sunshine Club of SBLW was established and designed to help Korean- Americansand and all ethnic groups to get along in this wonderful community and to have better communication with neighbors. The Sunshine Club is happy to be part of a liaison when new residents have issues with their Mutual or GRF due to lack of information or regulations. The Sunshine Club emphasizes the use of the “Information Booklet for New Residents” that is available at Stock Transfer for no charge. It is translated in Korean since the Korean- American community has grown rapidly in recent years. All ethnic group residents are welcome to join the clubs. English is spoken in class.
During the last six months, Sunshine Club has invited many community and club leaders to share their experience with classmates and answer classmates’ questions. The guest speakers include Denis Craig, GRF Board member of Mutual 11; Owen Huff, Mutual 7 Director ; Phil Hood, Mutual 5 President; Jim Mueller, Y’s Service Club; Kevin Dugonvencec, Assistant to the Executive Director; Jack O’Shea, Mutual 11 President;
Linda Johnson, GAF Hospitality Supervisor; Sharon Kohn, Vision and Impaired; Joyce Vlaic, GAF President ; David Saunders, GRF News Managing Editor ; Jaime Guerrero, Security Chief; John Harper, the president of Photo Art Club, Coin Club and Art League; and Janice Laine, Social Security Benefit specialty for Seniors;
The Sunshine Club meets every Friday at Club House 3, Room 8, from 10:00 -12:00.
The volunteered leaders of the classes are Anna Derby, Stephan Paik, Flo Darrt and James Mun. Anyone who would like to give any suggestion to the class, please call
