Patriotic Show to Celebrate Independence Day at the Amphitheater

Springsteen Experience

Saturday, July 3

7:30 p.m. at the Amphitheater

Sponsor: Home Instead

The music of Bruce Springsteen, a prolific songwriter and storyteller whose career spans more than four decades, will be featured in the Springsteen Experience at a patriotic community concert celebration this Saturday on the Amphitheater stage. 

Everyone is invited for a night of Americana evoking the boys from New Jersey in a tribute to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Koffel’s will bring the Taco Tuesday Truck with the regular popular fare as well as its famous tri tip and rib barbecues, your choice, for $11 a plate, including all the fixings. Serving starts at 4 p.m. Stay after the concert and enjoy a special fireworks light show on the Amphitheater doors.

Josh Schreiber and the cast and crew of the Springsteen Experience will showcase Springsteen’s brilliant catalog of music, including the hit songs “Glory Days,” Dancing in the Dark,” “Born to Run” and “Born in the USA.”This will be a high-octane, chronological journey, recreating the most memorable moments and stage interactions throughout E Street concert history. 

From 1973 through the height of Bruce’s fame in the 80s and beyond, this theatrical production accurately replicates the near circus-like appeal of an authentic Springsteen concert. It includes vintage equipment and stage sets, multiple costume changes, and note-perfect renditions of Bruce’s most popular hits and lyrical gems.

With the addition of the four-piece Miami horn section, the Experience is a concert event like no other production in the replica-rock genre today. 

The tribute includes such classics as “Detroit Medley,” “Adam Raised a Cain,” “Sherry Darling,” “Hungry Heart” and “Thunder Road.” Schreiber, backed by a notable ensemble of lookalike talent, bears a striking resemblance to Springsteen.

His similarity in mannerisms and vocal prowess will  transport you back in time with songs like “Growing Up,” “E Street Shuffle” and “Hard to be a Saint in the City.” Schreiber honed his skills on stages large and small, from Orange County to The Wonder Bar in New Jersey, and even Nagasaki, Japan, playing for U.S. troops.

Come celebrate summer on July 3. Admission is free. Residents must have GRF photo ID cards for admission to Amphitheater shows. 

Non-resident guests must be accompanied by a resident shareholder. 

Smoking is not permitted at the Amphitheater, which is located behind the LW News Office in the GRF Administration complex.

No parking is allowed in front of Amphitheater on St. Andrews Drive along the southbound lanes.  

Minibus transportation will be available before and after shows. Koffel’s food trucks and Mandie’s Candies will provide options for pre-event dining.

Gates will open at 4 p.m., with live music on the main stage, beginning with King Salmon Band followed by the 40th Infantry Division Band. Food vendors will be available.

GRF Board Election for Mutual 1

A special meeting of the GRF Board of Directors was held on Tuesday, June 29, for the purpose of starting the counting process for the election of GRF directors from Mutual 1, which was postponed from June 1 due to a legality that neccessitated the resending of election ballots. 

The results of the ballot count are as follows with the winners’ names bolded:

• Seon H. Cho, 169

• Ruben Collazo-incumbent, 115

• Donna Gambol, 210

• Leah Perrotti-incumbent, 207

• Richard L. Stone, 94

North Gate now open

Leisure World’s North Gate was reopened at 8 a.m. on June 25 after more than a year of being closed. North Gate Road, the two-lane street leading to the gate, was closed for construction related to the $1.9 billion I-405 Improvement Project by the Orange County Transportation Authority.

A new soundwall is planned for North Gate but construction dates have not yet been set.

North Gate Road has been closed since April 2020 when crews began building a sewer line underneath the 405 Freeway. Unforeseen soil conditions halted the job in December and forced a project redesign.

Traffic Light Upgrade Delayed

The City of Seal Beach will upgrade traffic signal cabinet equipment at the intersection of Seal Beach Boulevard at Golden Rain Road on July 13 at about 10 a.m. This will require the intersection to go dark and be controlled by stop signs for about 30 minutes.

The work was originally scheduled for today, July 1.

Knives Out will be rescheduled

“Knives Out,” the film featured at the Amphitheater on June 25, was abruptly interrupted by police helicopters engaged in a manhunt after an intruder breached the wall at Mutual 1 behind Community Church at the St. Andrews Gate. The suspect was fleeing police after his car crashed on Seal Beach Boulevard. The police chopper hovered over the Amphitheater and directed people to go inside and lock their doors. GRF Recreation Manager Thomas Fileto stopped the movie and began evacuating the Amphitheater with the help of LW Security. The police looked for the culprit until 1 a.m. but did not capture the person. Police believe he was fleeing outstanding warrants. The film is being rescheduled and will be added to the Amphitheater schedule as soon as the details are finalized.

Golf Course hours to change

As of July 5, Turtle Lake Golf Course will be open from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week. However golfers are free to continue playing until dusk. 

This will eliminate the confusion between Pacific standard time and daylight saving time, and allow duffers to enjoy the course according to the available daylight. For more information, contact kathyt@lwsb.com. 

Make your bathroom more accessible with free grant

The City of Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program has been approved for another cycle of funding. This means that starting today, July 1, the city can spend nearly $200,000 on grants to Leisure World residents for the Bathroom Accessibility Program.

For over 15 years, the City of Seal Beach has offered the Seal Beach Bathroom Accessibility Program to help residents modify their bathrooms. As of 2020, LWers with more than one bathroom are eligible. Furthermore, in special circumstances, a bench can be added to the fiberglass unit.

In the wake of  COVID-19, the administration of this program has changed slightly. There will be no in-person workshops this year.  Instead, individual appointments can be made via phone, FaceTime, Zoom or Google Hangouts to ask questions and get individualized advice on how to complete an application. Simply email monique@civicstone.com for an appointment. People can also call (909) 364-9000, but email is preferred. All information is kept strictly confidential. 

Any Leisure World resident who has trouble stepping into the shower for any reason is likely eligible for a free bathroom upgrade. The Leisure World Bathroom Accessibility Grant converts the tub/shower combination into a shower-only for safer access. The fiberglass is refinished to look like new, and a custom glass shower door enclosure is installed. Toilets can be replaced with high-boy models, and grab bars may be added as needed.

The program is made possible through a grant from HUD, Orange County and the City of Seal Beach. To qualify, applicants must be over 55 years of age and have an annual income below $75,300 if they live alone or the limit is $86,050 per year for a two-person household. Savings do not disqualify applicants.

“Many residents get confused about the application process,” said Monique Miner of CivicStone, which administers the program. CivicStone was hired by the City of Seal Beach 15 years ago to facilitate the bathroom grant program. “Residents don’t realize you can have substantial savings and still qualify for the free upgrade. We are just a phone call away and can help residents apply for the completely free upgrade.  But don’t delay completing your application because funds are limited!”

For more information, email monique@civicstone.com or call (909) 364-9000. 

GRF Car Lot

Leisure World shareholder/members can sell used vehicles in the Administration parking lot from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on July 23.

In addition to cars, motorhomes, motorcycles, golf carts, bikes, trikes and scooters may be sold. The owner does not need to be present. A single “for sale” sign no larger than 18-by-24 inches can be displayed on the vehicle. 

Only LW residents are allowed to display vehicles for sale. The sale is open to residents and the guests they call in. For more information, contact Recreation at (562) 431-6586, ext. 350 or 398.

County starts redistricting

Every 10 years, local governments use new census data to redraw supervisorial district lines to reflect changes in their populations. Redistricting is done using U.S. Census data, which, because of COVID-related delays, will be released by Sept. 30. Orange County’s redistricting process must be completed by Dec. 15. 

To the extent practicable, district lines must be adopted using the following criteria, in order of priority: 

1. Geographically contiguous districts (each supervisorial district should share a common border with the next); 

2. The geographic integrity of local neighborhoods or communities shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division, 

3. Geographic integrity of a city shall be respected in a manner that minimizes its division; 

4. Easily identifiable boundaries that follow natural or artificial barriers (rivers, streets, highways, rail lines, etc.); and 

5. Lines shall be drawn to encourage geographic compactness. 

In addition, boundaries shall not be drawn for purposes of favoring or discriminating against a political party.

Assembly Bill 849 requires cities and counties to engage communities in the redistricting process by holding public hearings and/or workshops and doing public outreach, including to non-English-speaking communities. The board shall arrange for the live translation in an applicable language of a public hearing or workshop if a request is made at least 72 hours in advance. 

The Board of Supervisors will schedule workshops at which to receive public input on where district lines should be drawn. A current map of District 2, which includes Leisure World, can be found at cob.ocgov.com/sites/cob/files/2021-06/120045-Second.jpg. The next meeting of the board is July 27; more details can be found at cob.ocgov.com/2021-redistricting-agenda.

Constituents can submit public comments or written testimony, including suggested draft maps, by emailing redistricting@ocgov.com.

To speak at a public meeting, residents must complete a Speaker Request Form, available at the meetings. Speakers may address the Board on up to three occasions, with three minutes allotted to the speaker per occasion. 

To find out more about the process and the role the community plays, contact the County Executive Office at redistricting@ocgov.com or (714) 834-6000.

District 2 residents can also contact Supervisor Katrina Foley at (714) 834-3220 or katrina.foley@ocgov.com.

Community Guide White Pages

Resident names and phone numbers are not automatically placed in the LW Community Guide’s White Pages. To be included, shareholders may submit their information to LW Weekly by filling out the form placed in previous editions of the Community Guide and returning it to the LW Weekly Office or by emailing pattym@lwsb.com. 

Those whose information may have changed since the 2019 edition of the White Pages may also submit new information via email.

Resident names are deleted from the White Pages by request or after LW Weekly receives a report of sale and escrow closing from the Stock Transfer Office. Anyone who moves within LW will be deleted unless a form with the new address is submitted to LW Weekly.

Residents who think they know a name that should be removed may notify LW Weekly via email at pattym@lwsb.com.

Are the Medicare TV ads true?

by Sandra Teel

Medicare insurance agent

Everyone has seen the ads with a well-known athlete or celebrity endorsing a Medicare insurance company that claims to be able to deliver all kinds of free benefits. Viewers just have to call this 800 number, and they’ll be set up. Among the things these commercials claim people can get are in-home aides, dental coverage, eye glasses, prescription drug coverage, unlimited transportation, home-delivered meals, Part B givebacks to Social Security . . . The list goes on and on. These ads make it sound like people aren’t getting everything they’re entitled to. But is it true? The answer is both yes and no.

Yes, many of these “extra things” are covered by several different Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Supplemental plans. However, there’s a catch: These “extras” are not covered by Original Medicare, so each Medicare Advantage Plan or Medicare Supplemental plan can offer what they want as an “extra,” which often depends on where a person lives.

When someone calls the 800 number advertised on the TV screen, the representative is most likely not located in that person’s area and therefore is unfamiliar with the local hospitals, pharmacies, doctors, etc. In order to qualify for some of these “extras,” people might have to give up their trusted doctor or their preferred hospital. Not all Medicare Advantage plans contract with all local hospitals and doctors. And what about prescription drug costs? Will a person have to give up the least expensive drug coverage to receive the extra benefit?

Each state and county in that state has different plans with different “extras,” so it’s best to call a trusted Medicare insurance agent who knows what’s available in the area and will take the time to look up people’s preferred doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, etc. so they can keep them. 

It can be easy for people to be fooled into calling someone who knows nothing about them or their area, so be smart and contact a local, trusted Medicare insurance agent instead.

Catalina: A playground for all

by Sandra deDubovay

LW contributor

Sandra deDubovay and Joe DiDonato recently took the Catalina Express from Long Beach to Catalina. It was a smooth 70-minute sailing to the 76-square-mile mountainous island located approximately 22 miles away. Avalon Bay’s location on the leeward side, plus its “C” shape, makes it one of the safest harbors in the island. 

Spanish explorers discovered Santa Catalina Island in 1542. Don Pio Pico, the last Constitutional governor under Mexican rule, granted title to Catalina to Thomas Robbins in 1846, and in 1848, Mexico ceded Alta California to the U.S. at the end of the Mexican War. In 1850, California—including the Channel Islands, of which Catalina is the third largest—became the 31st state. The principal town of Avalon occupies approximately 2 square miles and has a population of about 3,000; the smaller settlement of Two Harbors has about 120 year-round residents.

Phineas Banning and sons purchased the island in 1885, bringing in tourists. But in 1915, a mysterious fire devoured much of Avalon. No lives were lost but many buildings were destroyed in the flames, and the Bannings, having suffered severe financial loses, eventually decided to put the island up for sale. 

When chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. visited in 1919, he seized the opportunity to buy the island. He named the high mountainside south of Avalon for his wife, Ada. It’s where he built a mansion for his family.

Staff from Mt. Ada (aka the Wrigley Mansion) met deDubovay and Joe DiDonato at the pier and whisked them and their luggage up to the six-bedroom bed and breakfast. After a tour of the accommodations, the two enjoyed a champagne lunch on one of the many patios, where they had amazing views of the ocean and Avalon below. Reservations at the inn include a continental breakfast starting at 6:30 a.m., featuring fresh pastries, coffee, tea and juice. A full breakfast is available from 7-10 a.m., and lunch is from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. There’s an afternoon reception with a selection of wine and cheeses available any time after 4 p.m. Plus, there are pantry refreshments with anything you can think of available throughout the day. 

In addition to packs of Wrigley’s gum, every room comes with a personal golf cart, plus a remote for gate access, for use during the stay. The duo drove all over the island, including to the Catalina Golf Course to practice putting. The nine-hole executive course is the oldest golf course in Southern California. Tiger Woods has notably played there. 

Also worth checking out is Catalina’s most famous landmark, the 12-story Avalon Casino, which opened in 1929. With its height of 140 feet, it was the tallest building in Los Angeles County at the time of its completion. It also featured the world’s largest circular ballroom.

The “Airport in the Sky” lies at an elevation of 1,600 feet on one of the highest parts of the island. Started in 1940, work was halted in December 1941 when the U.S. went to war, but it was completed and operational in 1946. United Airlines serviced Catalina from 1946-1957, but now the airport is mainly used for private aviation.

In 1972, to preserve the island’s interior, Wrigley’s son Philip established the Catalina Island Conservancy. It protects 88 percent of the island and is one of the oldest private land trusts in Southern California. The Wrigleys continue to be members of the conservancy.

Today, the island and its 3,000 permanent residents host more than 1 million visitors annually. Catalina is the playground for all—rich or poor, young or aged. If you haven’t been, it’s a must!

Dancers & Mixers returns to LW

It’s sure to be a fun time at Dancers & Mixers on Tuesday, July 6, at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. The evening includes live music performed by Linda Herman.

In addition to getting out, having a good time and meeting new people, dancing provides exercise that increases both your physical stamina and your flexibility. It also helps you to maintain your sense of balance, reducing your fear of falling.  And it definitely reduces stress and tension.  

Social scientists recently discovered that dancing is effective at delaying the onset of dementia in seniors. After more than a year of pandemic shutdowns, dancing has never felt more vital or necessary.

Attendees should bring their own refreshments, as well as GRF IDs so the club can update its membership list.

Karaoke crooners bring groovers

Nobody gets the karaoke audience dancing like Vito Villamor; he loves singing tunes like “Elvira” for the line dancers. Villamor was one of 33 performers who took the stage on June 23. 

First-time singers Sheri Vanek and Donna Hernandez were appreciated with lots of applause. Tony Tupas did a fine “Run Away,” while Barbie May and Pat Paternostra had fun singing “Four Walls.” Susan Kelleghan and Vinny Correnti wowed the crowd with “You’re the One.” Both Frank and Martha Destra were in fine voice. And Ric Dizon always performs a good rendition of any Elvis tune. 

It’s wonderful that all the karaoke performers love to sing, but it’s especially sweet for the audience when they can enjoy a treat, too. Ice cream drumsticks were provided by the club, and Alana Eaby brought dozens of her home-baked cookies.

All shareholders are welcome to the Wednesday-night karaoke parties in Clubhouse 1 beginning at 5:30. On July 7, the group will celebrate Independence Day with hot dogs and chips. 

Anyone who wants to fine-tune their next song can attend practice sessions on Mondays from 1-3 p.m. in the Amphitheater (enter through the back or side door).

Men’s Golf Club: Results from the June 23 tournament

Two groups of three flights of variously skilled golfers vied for best net scores (gross score minus handicap), plus four circle holes (shots within a 5-foot circle rewarded) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges as part of the June 23 Leisure World Men’s Golf Club Tournament. The Turtle Lake Golf Course, as played by the Men’s Club, is a well-manicured, 1,658-yard, 18-hole, par-54 course.

A total of 51 golfers teed off and played 18 holes through the early morning and into the afternoon. The weather was initially partly cloudy, but when the skies cleared around 8 a.m., the temps rose quickly. There was no wind until the latter part of the second group out.

The fairways are in very good condition, but the lack of overseeding of most of the tee boxes means there’s very low growth with large areas of dirt. The bumpiness from the aeration of the greens many weeks back has disappeared, as have most of the wet spots in front of several greens. These somewhat improved conditions surely led to an improvement to 24 of 51 rounds being net under par, versus the 21 from last tournament.

A Flight encompasses golfers with handicaps of 0-7; B Flight is handicaps of 8-11; and C Flight is handicaps of 12-18.

A Flight Winners: First place: Gene Archambault, a nice 5 under 49; second: Dong Kim, 3 under 51; third: Steve Walker, 2 under 52; fourth: tie between Dave LaCascia and Jae Kim. even par 54; fifth: tie between Steve Ro and Ron Steele, 1 over 55.

B Flight Winners: First place: tie between Ryan Hong, Young Lee and Won Lee, 4 under 50; second: tie between Gary Stivers, Alan Sewell, Ron Jackson and Kap Son, 2 under 52; third: tie between Dale Williamson and Roland Phillips, 1 under 53.

C Flight Winners: First place: tie between Joe DiDonato, Won Song and Sang H. Kim, a well-played 5 under 49; second: Roger Bennett, 4 under 50; third: Marv Jones, 2 under 52; fourth: tie between Mike Carlson, Byron Schweitzer and Steve Kang, 1 under 53; fifth: tie between James Choi and Ben Benjamins, even par 54.

Closest to the pin on the 85-yard, par-3 eighth hole was Jong Lee, and on the par-3 17th hole, it was club president Marv Jones. There were also five circle hole winners. 

The next Men’s Tournament will be on July 9; tournaments happen on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. The next Guys & Gals Tournament will be on July 16. If you are scheduled to play and cannot, contact Alan Sewell at (541) 324-8558 or Dave LaCascia at (801) 674-5975 as soon as you know.

Men’s Golf League

Nine Men’s League golfers competed on June 21 at the par-70, 5,800-yard Riverview Golf Course. It was a beautiful morning, with temperatures in the low 70s and little wind. Riverview has dramatic elevation changes throughout the course and runs both parallel to and across the scenic Santa Ana River. Though the greens and fairways were in excellent condition and there was little wind, the golfers delivered only three rounds under par; they still produced six birdies.

A Flight handicap is 0-20; B Flight handicap is higher than 20. All scores are net (actual score minus handicap). 

A Flight Winners: First place: Fujio Norihiro, a very nice 7 under 63; second: Sam Choi, a fine 6 under 64; third: Gary Stivers, 1 over 71; fourth: Bill McKusky; fifth: Jim Goltra. Norihiro had three birdies, plus fewest putts, while Choi had two birdies.

B Flight Winners: First place: Bill Zurn, an excellent 9 under 61; second: Lowell Goltra, 2 over 72; third: Gene Vesely; fourth: Bob Munn. Zurn had fewest putts and was closest to the pin on the 100-yard, par-3, all-over-water ninth hole. Vesely had a birdie and was closest on the 140-yard, par-3 14th hole.

On June 25, the David L. Baker Golf Club in Fountain Valley welcomed 12 men and one woman of the league. Baker is a par-62, 4,000-yard executive course that is fairly flat, with purposely placed sand traps and numerous water hazards. At tee time, the day was sunny with no wind. With the excellent greens and fairways and little wind, the golfers attacked the course, producing nine at- or under-par rounds and carding six birdies.

A Flight Winners: First place: Dave LaCascia, a terrific 11 under 51, second: tie between Choi and Tim Looney, a very nice 7 under 55; third: Larry Hillhouse, a sweet 4 under 58; fourth: Jim Goltra, 2 under 60; fifth: Norihiro, even par 62; sixth: McKusky; seventh: Gary Stivers. LaCascia had two birdies and fewest putts. Norihiro and Looney had one birdie each, plus Looney was closest to the pin on the 100-yard, par-3 third hole. McKusky was closest on the 115-yard, par-3 15th hole.

B Flight Winners: First place: Bob Meripol, an excellent 5 under 57; second: Munn, 1 under 61; third: Liz Meripol, even par 62; fourth: Lowell Goltra, 2 over 64; fifth: Tom Ross. Bob and Liz Meripol tied for fewest putts, plus Bob had two birdies. 

Friends, ladies, spouses and family are all welcome to play and/or join the league on Mondays and Fridays. The four local courses, all within 15 minutes of Leisure World, the group plays, are always quite full, so advance reservations with the league are becoming the norm, with a sign-up sheet available at each round. There is a prize pool for each round that players are not obligated to enter. If interested, contact, Gary Stivers at (714) 313-3697 or Dave LaCascia at (801) 674-5975.

First Christian Church

First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.  

The Message

Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,” The message here is that “blessings,” or happiness, and God’s favor are extended to nations that make him their Lord.  On Sunday, July 4, America will be celebrating its 245th birthday, also known as Independence Day.

First Christian Church will look at how Christianity influenced the Founding Fathers as they crafted the Declaration of Independence and other governing documents that day. 

Scripture of the Week

“I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither sleep nor slumber” (Psalm 121, 1-4 NASB).


Saturday and Sunday services have the same message given by Pastor Bruce Humes. Sunday is a traditional service, with hymnal music provided by Pat Kogok at the piano. Pat will also sing a special song. Sunday service is from 9:30-10:45 a.m.  

Saturday services are more contemporary, with Gregory Black leading worship with guitar accompaniment. Saturday service time is 9:30-10:45 a.m. 

 The Friday evening prayer meeting is from 6-7.


The state of California has lifted the COVID-19 restrictions with respect to churches. However, since Leisure World is a vulnerable community of residents, First Christian asks for those experiencing any COVID-19, flu or cold symptoms to stay home.  

Those who want to speak to someone at the church can call (562) 431-8810 and leave a message. The church location is on Northwood Road, behind Carport 125.

LW Baptist

LW Baptist will gather for worship on Sunday, July 4, at 9:45 a.m. in Clubhouse 4. The congregation is currently going through each chapter of the Gospel of Luke. 

This week focuses on chapter 11, verses 1-28, which traces the theme of learning more about faith in God. The narrative tells of Christ’s final journey to Jerusalem and the various incidents that occur along the way. The stories include Jesus  teaching his followers to pray, telling a story illistrating how God answers differently from what is expected, encountering unbelief among the religious leaders of the nation, and pointing out the worthlessness of self-reformation with a behind-the-scenes look into the invisible spirit-world, as well as Jesus’ surprising comment about faith requiring knowledge and practice of God’s word. 

The midweek Energizers group meets from 3-4 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. The group is currently studying the Old Testament prophet Nehemiah. This week is centered on chapter 5, the stepping stones in the Christian life.

Join St. Theodore’s for food and fellowship afterward in the church’s conference room.

Faith Christian Assembly

It’s rare to hear the true faith of America’s Founding Fathers. But Benjamin Franklin, co-signer of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, once said, “Here is my Creed. I believe in one God, the creator of the universe; that he governs it by his providence. And that he ought to be worshipped.” Faith Christian Assembly encourages LWers to do exactly that. Come and celebrate the freedom Americans have to worship. 

Join Faith Christian Assembly on Sunday, July 4, at 10:30 a.m.  People will be inspired and challenged by Pastor Sheri Leming’s message, straight from God’s Word.  Come join us and bring a friend.

Out of an abundance of caution for all who attend services or events at Faith Christian Assembly, those who are ill are asked to stay home.  

The Sunday celebration service  is at 5:30 p.m. Pre-service prayer is at 5 p.m. every Sunday in the prayer room, just off the main sanctuary. The midweek Bible study, taught by Pastor Sheri, is on Wednesdays.

Community Church

This week, Community Church will look at Mark 6:1-13 , in which Jesus faces some of his harshest critics, those who think they know him best.  

 People often confuse opinion with fact. It is tempting for a person to think that what he or she believes is fact, when in reality, it is just an opinion. 

 Pastor Johan Dodge has said numerous times that “where two or three are gathered, there are four or five opinions.”  Discipleship is the process of learning to move past opinion and dwelling in what is as it is.  It is a challenging thing to do, especially in community, but it also something that humans were created to do by God.  

Community Church is designed with the first-time participant in mind.  Those have not felt welcome in church in the past or have never participated in church before are welcome to attend.

As Orange County continues to emerge from the pandemic, Community Church offers services virtually on Zoom and Facebook, as well as in-person service for those who are vaccinated. As a reminder, full vaccination happens two weeks after the second shot from Pfizer or Moderna, or one shot from Johnson & Johnson. Community Church plans to be open for everyone beginning in July, in line with national guidance.  

Those who missed last week’s message can find it on Facebook.

Those in need of pastoral assistance can call the church office at (562) 431-2503 or email leisurewccsue@yahoo.com.

Assembly of God

This Sunday is an appropriate day to celebrate the hard-won right to exercise religious freedon.  While brothers and sisters in Christ around the world meet in secret churches or are in danger of being disowned by their families, kidnapping, torture and death, Americans enjoy the right to meet publicly and worship the way in which they are most comfortable. So, while enjoying the Fourth of July holiday barbecues and fireworks, take a moment to thank God for the freedom to worship. Remember the ones who have fought valiantly on battlefields or through the legal system to ensure that eveyone can exercise that freedom without restraint.  

Pastor Chuck Franco will present the first part of his last sermon in “The Bridge” series on Sunday, July 4 at 10:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2. His sermon for this week is titled “The Bridge of Destiny.”

The congregation continues the practice of celebrating Communion together the first Sunday of every month.  Communion is open to all those who have professed Jesus Christ as their savior. 

The midweek Bible study takes place every Wednesday in Clubhouse 3, Room 2, at 10 a.m. The group is currently studying 1 Peter,  and the series is titled “Journey into Hope…When Life is Tough.” This study is interactive and open to everyone.

Assembly of God welcomes anyone who desires to experience a vibrant family of Christ-followers who care about one another, the LW community and the world. Those who have questions about the church, events, prayer or counseling needs can call  (562) 357-4360, or email lwagpastorc@gmail.com to speak to Pastors Chuck and Sheryl Franco. Prayer requests can also be sent to prayer team leader Carolyn VanAalst  at (562) 343-8424.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

The celebration will begin at 9 a.m. with a flag raising, followed by patriotic music, an inspirational speaker, potluck breakfast and a decorated bicycle parade. This is  a great opportunity to invite friends, work colleagues and neighbors to join in honoring America’s Declaration of Independence 245 years ago. 

All members of the Long Beach California East Stake are invited to celebrate Pioneer Day–the day when Latter-day Saints first entered the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The event will be held on Saturday, July 24, at 3:30 p.m. at Rush Park, 3021 Blume Drive, Rossmoor. More information will follow.

Mobility Aids Procedure changes

The Golden Age Foundation’s (GAF) Mobility Aids office is  now open Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m. The GAF volunteers will be there to help residents with finding the right mobility aid and filling out the correct forms to pick up an item.

One of GAF’s newest policies is the new maximum time for loaned equipment six months. The policy used to allow for residents to use the mobility aid for an indefinite amount of time, but the policy sometimes made it costly for repairs and replacements in addition to running low on mobility aid devices. 

Those who must extend their loan period beyond six months should  call (562) 431-9589 with the GAF mobility aids equipment number.

Republican Club

by Brian Harmon

LW contributor

Two representatives from Congresswoman Michelle Steel’s office discussed election strategy to approximately 35 people at a special strategy meeting of the LW Republican Club on June 22. 

The two represenatives thanked the club for all of its help in electing the congresswoman last November. One of the represenatives was often seen at the GOP club booth last year speaking with members of the Korean American community and helping them register to vote.

Club President David Harlow provided a quick review of the club’s election strategies during the last few election seasons. 

“In 2016, we tried precinct walking, both talking to people and leaving literature,” Harlow said. “In 2018, we focused on making phone calls.”

Harlow said that in 2020, the club sent out mailers and ran ads in the LW Weekly, as well as manning the club booth one day a week.

“During the next election season, we are going to try doing all of the above,” Harlow said.

Harlow’s remarks were followed by a 30-minute discussion of the ways to reach out to members of the LW community. Several immigrants, including one from a formerly Communist country, spoke about how they are thankful to live in a country where real freedom, including freedom of speech, is permitted.

A few members said they would like to hear speakers at club meetings talk about the Constitution and how it applies to today’s issues. Others talked about how much they appreciate seeing the Republican club articles next to the Democratic ones in the LW Weekly newspaper. Most members agreed that being friendly and positive is the most effective way to reach our neighbors and share Republican values.


The Election Integrity Project will be featured at the next meeting on Wednesday, July 21, at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 1.

The Republican Club booth will be open outside Clubhouse 6 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. this Monday, July 5, and the first Monday of each month thereafter.

The GOP Club does not charge membership dues or impose any other financial obligation on its members. The club raises money primarily through donations and selling political campaign memorabilia. The club endorses candidates for partisan and non-partisan races. Club funds are used to support its endorsed candidates, pay for speakers at club meetings, and cover miscellaneous expenses.

Anyone who wants to be added to the club membership roster, or wants more information can send an email to dharlow50@aol.com or call (714) 928-1950. 

Members will be sent via email an agenda and minutes for each meeting along with other information deemed necessary and/or appropriate by the president.

    Club members are encouraged to send opinions on public is-sues or ideas about what the club should be doing. To do so, call or text  (714) 928-1950. Those who do not want their name, ideas or opinions to be made public should so indicate.

He moved to Leisure World and joined the American Legion Post, woodcarvers and RV clubs. He was a member of C-300 and loved racing, having owned Corvettes over the years. Steve had a boat (or two) and lived aboard one of them at Gangway 17 for a long time. 

In recent years, he spent the summer in Entiat, Washington, where he had 5 acres along the river’s edge. He beautified the land and welcomed his friends and family to stay and camp with their RVs along the Entiat River at mile marker 7. Steve always had his eyes open to a diamond in the rough, flipping several homes before it was the thing to do. Steve was always hardworking, at times holding two jobs a day to support his growing family. 

Steve is survived by sisters Gladys, Carol and Charlotte, and brother Tex; his daughters Stephanie O’Connell  and her two sons and daughter; Sandra and her two sons and daughters;  along with Danielle. He was proud of two great-grandchildren, Logan and Madelyn, and his step-children Tom, Shirley and Gary. He is predeceased by his son Stan and his brothers Leroy and Benny.

Steve loved cruising the Caribbean, playing beanbag games and RV-ing with his long-time partner Gloria. They enjoyed their trips with the Kop Outs and Substation North Retirees of Long Beach.

Memorial and celebration of life ceremonies will be held on July 13  from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  at the Police Officers Park on Carson in Long Beach for family and friends.


Morton Goldberg


Morton Goldberg, a  longtime resident of Leisure World, passed away in his home at the age of 97 on June 13, surrounded by his family. The funeral was held on June 16 at Mount Sinai Memorial Park Hollywood Hills. 

He leaves his wife of 71 years, Helene; his three children, Linda Gren, Marshall Goldberg (Patti) and Jeanne Herman (David); and nine grandchildren. He was a veteran of World War II and a member of Congregation Shalom.

Robert Patrick Croghan 


Robert (Bob) Patrick Croghan was born on a farm in Iowa on March 15, 1930, and died Jan. 25. He was the second youngest of three boys and four girls. When his family lost the farm in the Great Depression, they moved to two small towns in Iowa, then to Omaha, Nebraska, where he was a student at Creighton Prep. From there, they moved to Des Moines, Iowa, where he graduated from Dowling High School. 

He earned a degree from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, a Jesuit college in 1953, with a double major in history and English, and a minor in philosophy. He spent two years in the Army and then spent 15 years as a monk in a Trappist Monastery on a farm outside Huntsville, Utah. They prayed and worked in silence, using sign language to communicate. He enjoyed his life there, but returned home to help take care of his parents. He subsequentially worked at Farmer John’s in Cudahy, California, until he had to quit work in order to help take care of his dad full-time. When his mom and dad both died, he and his sister moved to Lake San Marcos, California, where one of his married brothers was living. When his brother died, he and his sister Kathleen moved to Leisure World Seal Beach, where they lived for years. 

He developed COVID-19 and was transferred to the hospital in Long Beach. From there, he subsequentially died. His ashes are interred along with most of his family at Mission San Luis Ray in Oceanside, California. 

One person described him as having a very positive attitude toward life, and he was universally described as having a great sense of humor and always smiling. He will be missed in Mutual 17 and by his family. 

John Wesley Hobbs


John Wesley Hobbs(U.S.Navy, retired) passed away peacefully on April 20.

John is survived by his wife, Mary;  daughters Bryann Jones and Shirley Gudmundson; son John Hobbs; several grandchildren ;and many nieces and nephews. 

John and Mary moved to Leisure World, and together, they traveled in their RV to 49 states and Canada for 20 years.

In between travels, he was a volunter with emergency meals and the RV Clubs and also golfed.  

John joined the Navy in 1944 and rose through the enlisted ranks to Chief Petty Officer.  He graduated from diving school and Explosive Ordnance Disposal in 1956 and was an instructor of Underwater Swim School (UWSS) until his retirement in 1967. He continued his love and dedication to the deep sea after his retirement. He undertook many civilian assignments, including Makai Undersea Test Range as one of a team of six aquanauts for AEGIR Underwater Habitat; Texas Instruments Inc. as field manager on Research Vessel North Seal to depths of 20,000 feet; Kentron Hawaii Ltd. as a diver/submersible pilot, making 60 submersible dives on Perry Submarine; the Azorian Project, the recovery of the sunken Soviet submarine K-129 in the deep Pacific Ocean floor in the early ’70s, in which John participated.

His last deep-sea assignment for Naval Underseas Center was training civilian Navy divers for undersea research involving all aspects of manned underwater project. 

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 7, at the  Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, Texas.
