Thanksgiving is time for gratitude

The season that celebrates gratitude is here, and the focus is on all that makes Leisure World a great place to live. The LW Weekly is grateful to its loyal readers and contributors who help make this a weekly conduit of community connection. Staff seeks to accommodate all contributors, who inform readers weekly on LW’s comings and goings. Thank you to all who help do that. As everyone gets ready for a full feast ahead, read on for an abundant look at what your neighbors and friends are thankful for.

Mary Ellen Fuller, Mutual 2

I have lived in LW since March 2020 and love it here. I’m so grateful for silence at night, the peacefulness in the morning, the friends I’ve met since I’ve been here, the ocean, the bike path, Main Street in Seal Beach, all of my neighbors and my pretty greenbelt. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Fred Fenton, Mutual 12

I am thankful for Leisure World. There are many reasons: location near the beach, affordability, security, accessibility features, six clubhouses, Amphitheater, golf course, aquatic center, dozens of clubs and activities, extensive beautification over the past few years and the many volunteers who serve on our 16 Mutual boards.

But I am most thankful for meeting my wife at Leisure World. Linda and I met at water aerobics classes here. Our falling in love and marrying is thanks to each of us having chosen this lovely community for our retirement years. Thank you, Leisure World!

Tom Pontac, Mutual 10

As corny as it sounds, I’m very thankful that I’m married to my best friend, Jeanne, and that, in many important ways, it’s gotten better as the years go by. I’m thankful that, in times of crisis and difficulty, I’ve been blessed to have the friends and the courage to accept and surmount my problems. I am a better person because of them.

I’m thankful that my parents taught me to be non-judgmental and unprejudiced toward others as regards race, religion or gender, and to not judge myself too harshly either. I’m very thankful that I have, at long last, learned to not dwell on my losses, but to focus what I have and, especially, what I can do for others. I’m very thankful for the life I’ve lived and can’t wait to see what lies ahead. 

Eileen Newquist, Mutual 2

I’m thankful for my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. I don’t know what I would do without them and my longtime friends that I have made in Leisure World.

Melinda Lee, Mutual 5

I am grateful for having my father still alive today at 85.

Paulette Kaplan, Mutual 7

I just wanted to say thank you for the person who delivers my LW Weekly.  Even though I am able to use the computer, I enjoy reading my paper. 

The carriers in my area, Mutual 7, come up onto my patio and place my paper on the table that I have set next to my door. 

This gesture, small to some but huge to me, is so appreciated. I have back issues, and the fact that I do not have to pick the paper up from the floor is so very much appreciated.  

It brings to mind a song from long ago, “Little Things Mean a Lot.”

At this time of Thanksgiving, I am very grateful. Thank you.

KG and Katy Koons, Mutual 15

Though we have health problems, we are thankful that our 42nd anniversary is coming soon and for our church and the Lord.  We are thankful that we have had freedom in this nation to have two vocations for me: teaching and pastoring and banking for my lovely wife. Of course, we have family members we love  and our cat of 11 years. Longtime friends round out our blessings that include living out our last time in LW. Not bad for a kid from Jersey and a wife from Austria. 

Christine Bird, Mutual 5

I am thankful for the variety of trees that adorn our properties, the green grass and beautiful golf course and the humming,lively pool for all to frolic in.

I’m thankful for the food trucks offering us burritos, pizzas and lobster rolls and bisque and even Whoopie pies!

And for the variety of clubs and churches  that keep us moving in mind, body, spirit and heart. 

The  convenient Health Center Center and post office are invaluable.

Also the liveliness, diligence and vibrancy of volunteers who help recycle our batteries and shred  our unwanted documents, the volunteers who run our mutual with their insight, expertise and willingness to serve, and for you, our weekly newspaper that keeps us informed of up and coming events and photos recognizing longevity achieved in Leisure World. We appreciate photos of homes that we wished our loving friends in other parts of the country would invest in so we could be closer physically and not be just text or phone pals.God has been good to us all.

Dave Crandall, Mutual 10

I’m thankful for my 2022 retirement, allowing me to appreciate my new home in Seal Beach, and specifically, Leisure World.  Goodbye, morning alarm and rush to begin work on a computer.  Hello, stepping outside to feel the caress of the sunshine and sea breeze, and spy the ubiquitous rabbits, monarch butterflies and black phoebes, as well as the occasional great egret. 

I’m thankful for the time to enjoy the Leisure World activities, clubs, facilities, and classes (the library, the creative writing club, painting, genealogy, scrabble, bocce ball), and for my new neighbors and old friends. I’m thankful for my new part time math tutoring job outside Leisure World that I actually look forward to, and the gift of being able to taste food, and hear music from the world over, right here in sunny, breezy Seal Beach.

Angela Valerie, Mutual 1

I am very grateful for the shredder truck available to us and for the Golden Age Foundation volunteers who are there to help us. God bless you all!  

Steve Martinez, Mutual 9

I’m thankful for the Leisure World community. The GRF and  GAF boards give their time without pay to make the community a nicer place to live. Their hard work is noticed. Mutual 9 directors also give their time without pay updating important documents, managing multiple contracts and fending off lawsuits. I sleep well knowing they take care of business. 

The Community Church welcomes all no matter your story or identity. Spirits are renewed. And to all those who show remarkable resilience facing life’s challenges, steady perseverance waking each morning to live your lives, and the wisdom to know that wealth and treasure have no pleasure like a friend or two. You are great role models. I’m thankful for the time spent with few and faithful friends; being present with a sound mind, body, and soul; the honor and privilege to love you; and a hope for a greater tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving. 

Janice Turner, Mutual 8

I’m thankful for the opportunity GRF offered me to participate in the 2022 Arts & Crafts Festival. My sales were a success! I raised a generous amount to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

Thanks to all the generous people that stopped by to make this donation in fighting childhood cancer possible. Wishing you all a blessed holiday season! 

Yvette Perdue, Mutual 10

Thankful to LW friends who helped donate hundreds of caps, scarves, clothing, etc., over the years to Christian Outreach in Action, Long Beach, which provides assistance to the homeless. 

Thanksgiving Message from the GRF President

by Marsha Gerber

GRF president

Thanksgiving Day has different meanings for each of us. 

Some people want the Norman Rockwell version. But for me, hopping into my golf cart (instead of bumper-to-bumper traffic on the 405 Freeway) and celebrating with a few people here that are my family now is just perfect. 

Homemade enchiladas by my Mutual 15 friend will be served instead of turkey. 

Pumpkin pie will still be part of the day, I am sure. 

This is a day to express gratitude for all our blessings. And one of those blessings we all share is that we live in this safe, beautiful community. 

With all my heart, I wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving.

Christmas Tree lighting ceremony is Dec. 6

The GRF Recreation Department is hosting the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6, at Veterans Plaza. 

There will be a brand new tree and an appearance by Santa. He and his elves (courtesy of the LW Theater Club) will collect unwrapped toys for the upcoming annual Toys for Tots event to benefit children in need. Santa will be available for photos.

The Korean American Chorale will entertain with a selection of Christmas carols. 

The audience will be invited to sing along.

Optum at the HCC will provide complimentary refreshments.

Water conservation efforts are ongoing

The City of Seal Beach reports that Leisure World residents used 15% less water in October as compared to September. 

“This is a good sign,” said Iris Lee, the city’s deputy public works director. “But we should not relax on these important water conservation measures.”

There are a number of free virtual classes offered for landscape design and irrigation principals offered free of charge by Metropolitan Water District.  For more information, visit https://www.bewaterwise.com/classes.html#find-classes-in-your-area.

Residents are asked to continue implementing these important water conservation measures:


• There’s nothing as refreshing as a cold drink of water, but don’t let the faucet run to get it. Chill a container of water in the refrigerator instead.

• Avoid running the faucet over frozen food to defrost it; put it in the refrigerator the night before or defrost in the microwave.

• Rethink any tasks usually performed under running water—like washing vegetables or brushing teeth. (A gallon of water is wasted if the faucet is half open for 1 minute.) Use a dishpan or bowl to catch the water instead of letting it run down the drain. Then pour the water from the bowl onto your house plants.


• Set the water level on  wash ing machines to match the size of the load. Try to avoid doing frequent small loads; whenever possible, run the machine only when when it is fully loaded.

• People don’t need to rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Hand rinsing dishes under the faucet uses up a lot of water. Use the dishwasher’s pre-rinse cycle instead of hand rinsing. If a dish or two isn’t completely clean after the dishwasher cycle, finish the job by hand.

• Like the washing machine, only run the dishwasher when it’s full. When possible, wash dishes by hand in a sink—not under a running faucet. Use a second basin or dishpan for rinsing.


The bathroom offers the next biggest opportunity to save water.

• Make sure toilets are all working properly. According to the American Water Works Association, the average American home loses more than 15 percent of all water used to leaks. Call a Mutual director for a leaking toilet. Leak detection tablets can help people check for leaking toilet components. Up to 20 gallons of water a day can be lost this way. If you hear water running in an adjacent unit, call Security.

• Keep showers as brief as possible or turn the water off while shaving or scrubbing in the stall.

• When taking a bath, close the drain while the water warms up, then adjust the temperature. Monitor the tub as it fills, and turn the water off at the half-way mark.

• Turn off tap water while brushing teeth.


• Sprinkler set-ups can be overwatering lawns and greenbelts. Residents should report standing water that could be attributed to sprinkler overwatering to their Mutual directors. These puddles also foster mosquitos, which can exacerbate the potential for West Nile Virus.

• Use a broom, not the garden hose, to wash off patios or sidewalks.

• Use the car wash located at Clubhouse 2 as it uses recycled water.

• Water gardens in the morning or later in the evening, when temperatures are cooler.

Water conservation begins with each individual. If each member makes a few simple adjustments to his or her household routine, the community can conserve thousands of gallons of water and save thousands of dollars each year.

In California’s Mediterranean climate, winter rains typically taper off and end in the spring. By November, rain usually arrives and wets down the landscape, dampening the fire danger.

Cooking fires can be prevented

by Eloy Gomez

health and safety specialist

The holiday season in the U.S. is generally considered to begin the day after Thanksgiving and end after New Year’s Day. However many Leisure World residents are already shifting into holiday mode and have begun to test their ovens to ensure they are functional and ready to try new recipes so they can bring the best homemade treats to those club and family holiday parties.  

Unfortunately, this holiday cooking excitement also increases the risk of home fires in Leisure World. 

In the first two weeks of November, there have been four fire incidents reported, including  two stovetop, one microwave and one oven incident. Both stovetop incidents were caused by unattended cooking.    

According to the Orange County Fire Authority, more cooking fires are reported on Thanksgiving Day than any other day of the year, followed by Christmas and Christmas Eve. Help protect your family,  neighbors, unit and building by practicing cooking safety this holiday season.

Holiday Cooking Safety Tips

• Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling or broiling food. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home cooking fires.

• Check food often while cooking. If you are entertaining guests, use a kitchen timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on.

• Wear short, fitted or tightly rolled sleeves when cooking.

• Keep cooking areas clear. Pot holders, paper towels, wooden utensils and even cookbooks can be fire hazards if left too close to the stove, oven or other kitchen appliances.

• Clean cooking surfaces regularly to prevent grease buildup.

• Make sure children and pets stay at least 3 feet from the oven or stove.

• Test smoke alarms and never disable them while cooking.

• Inspect and remove combustible items from the oven before preheating; plastic and wooden handles and utensils can easily ignite.

In the Event of a Fire 

• If the fire is on the stove, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the stove. Never try to move the pan to the sink and never pour water on a grease fire.

• If the fire is in the oven or microwave, keep the door closed and turn off the appliance.

• A multipurpose ABC fire extinguisher can also be used on a small cooking fire. An extinguisher should only be used if the fire is not spreading, and smoke and heat have not filled the area, and you have a clear escape path.

Each of the steps above must be followed by a call to 911, even if the fire has been doused. The fire department will check for hot-spots or damage to appliances. If the fire is spreading aggressively to other areas beyond the cooking surfaces, for example, floors, cabinets, counter top or items on the countertop, evacuate the unit immediately. Once safely out of the unit call 911 and begin to alert/evacuate your neighbors. Never re-enter a unit on fire.

Interact Solutions Town Halls

Interact Solutions will host informational meetings for residents interested finding out more about bulk cable and Internet service coming to LW on Dec. 3, Jan. 7 and Jan. 21. All  meetings are in the lobby of Clubhouse 3 from 1:30-5 p.m. 

LW’s bulk cable contract will expire Dec. 31. Interact Solutions representatives will be there to answer questions and demonstrate  its product.

More than 350 LWers recycled spent batteries last week

The Golden Age Foundation (GAF) sponsored a successful battery recycling event that served about 350 residents who dropped off over 650 pounds of batteries Nov. 15. 

This was the first opportunity to recycle batteries in LW since September.

Residents expressed gratitude to the GAF when it found a way to resume the service, saving them a trip to a hazardous waste center. Household batteries cannot be thrown away in regular household trash.

People brought their batteries to the Clubhouse 2 parking lot where volunteers collected, sorted and packed them for shipment to the recycle facility. 

Leisure World’s longtime battery-disposal service was discontinued after significant cost increases in pick up and processing made it impractical to continue. 

In 2021, the GAF recycled between 3,000-5,000 pounds of batteries, but the cost of recycling shot up from less than $1 a pound to over $4 a pound. As a result, collection points supplied by the Golden Rain Foundation to the GAF were no longer available. 

Since then, the GAF found a new program, which still costs around $1.50 per pound but is much less expensive than the $4-$5 per pound it was paying last year. 

So many residents turned out Nov. 15 that several had to be turned away as the 650-pound limit was reached sooner than anticipated.

The GAF plans to hold another household battery collection event in four months. 

In the meantime, LW residents can take their batteries (of all sizes) to an Orange County Waste and Recycling Center for free all year long. Centers also take paints, cleaners, oils and

Annual budget disclosures are in the mail

GRF and Mutual budget disclosure packets were sent out for mailing starting Nov. 23. Shareholders should expect packets in the mail, rather than inserted in the LW Weekly as was the case in past years.

Packets include GRF and Mutual annual budget disclosures and a green electronic consent form, which will allow GRF or the Mutual to electronically send documents that would normally be mailed. 

Some Mutuals have two electronic consent forms, one for GRF and one for the Mutual. 

Additionally, packets include a consent form to let shareholders set up an additional address where they can receive mail. People who want to receive correspondence electronically or receive mail at an additional address should complete the forms and return to them to Mutual Administration located in the Administration Building.

Residents should start receiving packets next week, and they will not all arrive at the same time, so neighbors may receive theirs before you receive yours.  

Senior Focus-Food Resources

This one in a series of occasional columns to familiarize LW residents with the vast array of resources available to them. Each article focuses on a topic of interest as researched by GRF Member Resource Liaison Robann Arshat. This one is about the plethora of food resource programs in Orange County. The goal is to help residents better manage the challenges often associated with aging and to keep people at home and healthy for as long as possible.

Letter to the Editor


I had a problem and I went to the new MedEx Urgent Care Clinic, 12410 Seal Beach Blvd. Ste F, Seal Beach, next to Ralphs in the Rossmoor Center.

The service was excellent, and the wait was very minimal. They knew what they were doing, and it was very fast.

If I need to go to urgent care again, I will go there. The clinic is connected to Optum Care (which is the provider at the Health Care Center).

GRF Visitor Access Procedures

In an effort to provide a secure community while allowing timely access to authorized visitors, the following procedures regarding visitor access shall apply:

Resident/Authorized Person Call-In

An authorized resident/person can call the Security Main Gate Office at 562-594-4754 to call in a visitor to the community. 

People authorized to call in visitors:

• Owner.

• Co-occupant, non-owner, no stock.

• Qualified rermanent resident.

• Authorized renter.

• Power of attorney (if the resident is not deceased).

• Executor (only if the unit is in “estate” status).

• Trustee (only if the unit is in “estate” status).

People who are not authorized to call in visitors:

• Non-resident co-owner.

• Outgoing, in escrow.

• Former renter.

• All caregivers, including part-time, full-time and live-in family caregivers.

• In escrow.

• Power of attorney (if the resident is deceased).

• Immediate family.

When the authorized person notifies Security, he or she will provide the Security officer with the following information:

• First and last name.

• Mutual and unit number.

• Name of the visitor.

The Security officer will enter this information into the visitor access system. When the visitor arrives at the gate, a Security officer will:

• Obtain the name of the visitor.

• Obtain the name of the resident they are visiting.

• Record the visitor’s vehicle license number in the iPad tablet.

• Print out the pass and give the pass to the visitor.

If there is an issue with the issuing of the pass, the visitor will park and go to the Security Office for further assistance.

District 5 will have a runoff election

There will be a runoff election to fill the District 5 seat representing about half of Leisure World on Jan. 31. Council member Sandra Massa-Lavitt is termed out.

Nathan Steele, a business owner, got the most votes, 1,291 votes or 44.89%, on Election Day Nov. 8. He was followed by Mariann Klinger, a planning commissioner, who got 636 votes or 22.11%.

Neither candidate received 50% plus 1 of the votes, so they will contend for the seat in a runoff.

District 5 covers the portion of LW west of St. Andrews Drive. The remainder of LW comprises District 2.

Seal Beach city staff anticipates certifying the election at the Dec. 12 City Council meeting, provided the official results are received from Orange County Registrar’s Office.

Minibus Orientation

A Minibus informational meeting will be held Thursday, Dec. 1, at 10 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 3. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month to help LW residents use the many transportation services available to them. No reservations are required.

Nominations should include the person or family’s full name, phone number and the nominees’ name(s), phone number, address, along with the reason for the nomination.

Send nominations to Officer Kendra Owen or Officer David Rael-Brook no later than Sunday, Dec. 11,  by 5 p.m. Officer Owen can be reached at kowen@sealbeachca.gov or Officer Rael-Brook at draelbrook@sealbeachca.gov.

Nominations will be anonymous. All nominations will be reviewed and those selected will be visited by Seal Beach police officers and Santa Cop.

SBPD Police Report

A man was arrested after allegedly making a false bomb threat and pulling the fire alarm at a large apartment complex, according to the Seal Beach Police Department. 

On Nov. 20 at 11:35 a.m., police responded to a call of a structure fire at the Eaves apartment complex, 333 First Street. 

Officers arrived on scene and quickly determined that although the fire alarm was sounding, there was no fire. 

Officers detained a male subject whom they suspected had intentionally pulled the fire alarm. 

As officers continued to check the apartment building for fire, they discovered a suspicious package directly in front of the detained person’s apartment door. 

The man allegedly told officers that the package was a “gift for the bomb squad.”

Fearing the package contained a hazardous object, the Orange County Fire Authority and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad responded. 

Additional personnel from the Los Alamitos, Cypress, and Huntington Beach police departments, along with the California Highway Patrol, and the Long Beach and Huntington Beach Fire Departments also responded. 

The two neighboring apartment buildings were evacuated out of an abundance of caution. Pacific Coast Highway was closed for approximately one hour while the buildings were evacuated. 

Ultimately it was determined that the package did not contain hazardous or explosive materials. Once the man’s apartment was also checked and officers discovered no hazardous items, people were allowed to return to their apartments.

Tips to make your favorite foods healthier

After the whirlwind of the holiday season, many people are mentally preparing to give up their favorite foods to follow through with the new year’s resolution of being healthier. What many don’t realize is that resolving to eat healthier can be easy by making simple swaps when preparing the favorite foods.

. Choose crunchy foods. Those who are prone to snacking can reach for noisy foods. These include crunchy items like apples, carrots and pretzels. 

. Tone down the cream. Comfort dishes like fettuccine alfredo typically are made with lots of butter and cream. Replace cream sauces with a healthier base made of low-fat milk thickened with flour. Increase the flavor with favorite spices.

. Fry with care. Use healthy oils like olive or coconut sparingly. Many foods that are traditionally fried also can be lightly coated with cooking spray and baked for a crunchy texture.

. Choose sodium-free seasonings. It is recommended to limit the sodium to less than 1 teaspoon of salt per day. Try options like fresh herbs or lemon juice to add some sodium-free flavor.

. Increase fiber content. Fiber helps one feel fuller longer and can also be helpful for digestion and heart health. Choose the brown varieties of rice, pasta and whole wheat breads.

. Replace meat with leaner forms of protein. Lean chicken and turkey can replace red meats in many recipes. Some traditional dishes such as burgers can also be modified using vegetables or seafood. Lean meats dry out quickly, so keep foods moist by watching cooking times.

. Stock up on yogurt. Greek and other varieties of yogurt can replace sour cream and mayonnaise in many dishes.

The queen for the month of October was Linda Rich with a loss of 5.5 pounds. Ruby Resnick, Joyce Brandon and Shirley LaBreque tied for the loser of the week with a loss of 2 pounds each. The Wa-Rite’s total loss for the week was 10 pounds. Members paid tribute to veterans at the meeting.

Judy Crimmins gave a presentation on signs of dehydration. Lack of water may cause dizziness, brain fog, muscle spasms and dry mouth. By using a refillable water bottle people can keep track of the recommended water intake amount of 56-64 ounces. Consuming water-rich foods such as celery, cucumbers and watermelon will help people stay hydrated throughout the day, increase energy and clear the head.

The weekly weigh-in is on Fridays in Clubhouse 3, Room 1, from 8-8:45 a.m. The meeting begins at 9. Everyone must present a GRF ID at the door to join the meeting. 

There will be no meeting on Nov. 25. The next weigh-in and meeting are on Dec. 2. Attendance is mandatory for year-end awards.

LW Orchestra to perform Dec. 10 in CH 4

On Nov. 10, a small group of volunteers met to make a plan of action to help the Leisure World Orchestra. The auxiliary will perform duties like greeting guests, passing out programs, serving snacks after concerts and collecting donations to help purchase music, repair instruments and purchase percussion items.

Members of the group love listening to classical music and are grateful to live in a community where the arts flourish. They appreciate the effort of conductor Samuel Kim and members of the orchestra to prepare and practice their craft. Over the past few years, Kim’s leadership and recruitment has led to a marked improvement in the orchestra’s performances.

The Leisure World Orchestra Auxiliary looks forward to a packed house on Dec. 10 at 6 p.m. in Clubhouse 4.

Celebrating her birthday, Shirlene Wallis, favored the group with delicious pizza and cake. Her favorite song, “Could I Have This Dance,” is a trip down memory lane.

Richard Yokomi sang a quiet and smooth “You’ve Got a Friend.” Intermingled were some beautiful ballads like “Twelfth of Never” and “The Great Pretender,” sung by Mariza Joaquin, Elizabeth Butterfield, Barbie May, Ren Villaneauva, Ric Dizon and others. 

With gusto, Nina DeRosa, did “Where the Boys Are” followed by Sally Glausser with “Love Potion No. 9.” Folks go home from a Wednesday night karaoke party with a smile and humming a tune.

Photo Arts

The Photo Arts Club will hold a holiday meeting with food and libations on Thursday, Dec. 8, at 1:30 p.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 9. Residents are encouraged to get to know their fellow photographers and bring holiday photos to share. Everyone is welcome. 

A Facebook page has been created for all LW residents interested in photography. On Facebook, look for “Photographic Arts Club of Leisure World.” This is a private page to avoid outside ads or comments posted on this page. To join, hit the “Join” button, and LW residents will be approved. Members are invited to post their favorite photos. In the “comments” section, people can ask questions about cameras, iPhones, or photography in general. A quick response will be provided.

At the Nov. 10 Photo Arts meeting, Ben Benjamins began a review and discussion of the 40 photos that members had sent to him. They were displayed on the large screen TV available now in Room 9. As each was shown, Benjamins and others in the audience commented on the importance of light and how it had impacted photo, design elements, use of color, focus, and the choice of subjects and how they had been arranged in the photo. Benjamins demonstrated using the edit features on his computer and on cell phones to modify some of the photos.

At the end of the presentation, he had a quiz showing buildings and asking the audience where the photo was taken.

 For information about the club, call Regine Schumacher at 562-430-7978.

Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament

Four tables of eight players enjoyed a great time at the tournament. The two players with the highest hands of the day were Tony Canfora (QQQQA) and Harry Sera (QQQQ7). The promotional hand was also won by Tony Canfora. 

The final table players were Tony Canfora, Harry Sera, Daniel Galliani and John Burns. There was plenty of action at the table, with Galliani going out first in fourth place, and Canfora followed in third. 

Sera and Burns battled for first place. In the winning hand, the flop came Q, K, 7. Sera went all-in with J10 and Burns called with AQ. The turn was a 5, and the river was a 10. That gave John the winning hand of QQ. 

Burns has lived in Leisure World and been a member of the club for 1.5 years. He also enjoys other activities in LW, like pool, pickleball, ping pong and golf. Another of his hobbies is Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Travel recap: Laughlin trip

Seventeen Leisure Worlders joined 17 others from Janet Karter’s three-day getaway to Laughlin, Nevada on the Colorado River in mid-November.

All enjoyed the bus activities, the desert scenery and the casino playing machines, but the tour highlight was making the 191 curves on historic Route 66 to the old western mining town of Oatman, Arizona. Street burros greeted the group, nuzzled them for food and lazily wander through the main street where a cowboy shoot-out didn’t faze them. As the number one residents, the wild burros have the right of way. Oatman was a booming town in 1915 with the discovery of rich ore. The town attracted miners and prospectors and the town grew to 3,500 residents. The town’s main mine shut down in 1924, but other mining continued until 1944. To date, there are 70 families living in Oatman and they thrive on tourism.

LW Poetry

LW Poetry

This feature showcases original poems by members of the Creative Writers Club of Leisure World and other GRF members. 

2 Ways

There are two ways

to live your life;

One as though nothing is a miracle,

The other is as though everything is…

My preference is the latter.

History moves so fast,

summer comes but once a winter;

I can’t find tomorrow because I’ve lost today.

Yesterday is a whisper;

The wine is no longer room temperature.

The tea is cold.

The youth is no longer bold,

I am told the rest has been sold.

Men’s Golf League

Friday Golf

Twelve golfers from the Leisure World Men’s Golf League played Nov. 11 at the 4,000-yard, par 62 David L. Baker Golf Course in Fountain Valley. Baker has numerous water hazards and large sand traps.

This week the weather was sunny but very cool at the 7 a.m. tee time. Once the sun rose over the treetops, the temperatures rose nicely and with no wind the golfers attacked the course. The fairways, which are in poor condition, are being groomed and seeded with numerous fairways closed to cart traffic. Tee boxes still need renovation. Greens remain in good condition.

With the average playing conditions, the course, surprisingly, allowed eight of the 12 golfers to shoot net at or below par. Tim Looney and Liz Meripol were closest to the pins on the third and twelfth par 3’s respectively. Fujio Norihiro and Bob Munn had fewest putts, and Dave LaCascia had the only birdie.


A Flight (handicaps 0-19): First place: Dave LaCascia, a well-played 3 over 59; second: tie between Gary Stivers and Clay Fischer, a very nice 2 over 60; third: Fujio Norihiro; fourth: tie between Bill McKusky and Tim Looney.

B Flight (handicaps 20 and over): First place: Liz Meripol, an excellent 7 over 55; second: tie between Tom Ross and Bob Munn, a very good 5 over 57; third: Lowell Goltra, even par 62; fourth: Digna Vesely; fifth: Gene Vesely.

Monday Golf

Twelve intrepid golfers from the Leisure World Men’s Golf League played Nov. 14 at the 6,000-yard, par 71 Willowick Golf Course in Santa Ana. Willowick has no water hazards, but relays on long, narrow, tree lined fairways and cavernous sand traps to challenge the golfers.

With the average playing conditions, the course was very stingy and allowed only two of the 12 golfers to shoot net at or below par and there were no birdies. 

Lowell Goltra and Gene Vesely were closest to the pins on the fourth and twelfth par 3’s respectivally. Gary Stivers and Goltra had fewest putts.


A Flight (handicaps 0-19): First place: Clay Fischer, a well-played 1 over 72; second: Gary Stivers, a very nice 2 over 73; third: Fujio Norihiro, a hard earned 3 over 74; fourth: tie between Bill McKusky, Larry Hillhouse and Sam Choi.

B Flight (handicaps 20 and over): First place: Digna Vesely, an excellent 4 under 67; second: Bob Munn, a very good even par 71; third: Tom Ross, a nice 1 over 72; fourth: tie between Gene Vesely, Bill Zurn, and Goltra.

The Monday and Friday greens golf leagues play at four local courses, all within 15-20 minutes of Leisure World. The courses the group plays are always quite full, so advance League reservations are required with a sign-up sheet available at each round.

There is a prize pool for each round that players are not obligated to enter. Rewards are given for low net in each flight, birdies, closest to the pin on two par threes, and for the lowest number of putts in each flight. Holes-in-one and Eagles (two over par), although infrequent, are generously rewarded. 

If interested, contact Gary Stivers, 714-313-3697, or Dave LaCascia, 801-674-5975.

Tournaments rescheduled due to weather

There was no LW Men’s Golf Club tournament on Nov. 9, due to the inclement and the fact that the tee boxes will be under repair for several weeks. 

With temporary tees boxes placed well in front of their usual position, it was decided to postpone the tournament until the tee boxes are functional again. For the same reasons, the Guys and Gals Tournament on Nov. 16 was also postponed.

The next Men’s Tournament will be on Nov. 23, and the Guys and Gals fifth Wednesday of the month tournament will be held on Nov. 30. 

Those who planned to play in any tournament and cannot should contact Alan Sewell, 541-324-8558, or Dave LaCascia, 801-674-5975, as soon as possible. Arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled tee time and be ready to play.

Rollin’ Thunder

Last Air&Water Day of the year will be held on Dec. 3

The Rollin’ Thunder Golf Cart Club will hold its quarterly Air&Water Day on Saturday, Dec. 3, in the Clubhouse 4 parking lot from 8:30-10 a.m.

The entrance to the cart line-up will be on the exit/alley roadway that connects Northwood Road and North Gate Road on the east side of Clubhouse 3. Look for the signs and follow the traffic cones. Rollin’ Thunder volunteers and Security staff will be there to assist.

Club volunteers will check tire pressure and battery water levels.  Many LWers find it physically difficult to perform these activities on their own.  Yet, ignoring these two maintenance items can lead to serious accidents and stall-outs in traffic, as well as premature tire and battery wear.

There is never a charge for this valuable service, and all LW cart owners are urged to participate.  Club membership is not required.

For further information, call President Tom Davis at 562-431-6859.

In the event of rain, Air&Water Day will be postponed to Saturday, Jan. 14.

Democratic Club

by Mary Larson

LW contributor

The Leisure World Democratic Club’s  meeting, originally scheduled for Nov. 23, has been postponed to Wednesday, Nov. 30. The meeting will be held in Clubhouse 3, Room 9, and via Zoom at 1 p.m.

Diana Carey will  deliver a speech titled “Where Do We Go from Here?” at the meeting. The title comes from Martin Luther King’s speech delivered at the 11th Annual ACELC Convention in Atlanta, on Aug. 16, 1967.

Carey is well known by long term club members as a former vice-chair of the Democratic Party of Orange County and as the recipient of the club’s “Democrat of the Year” award.  She is currently a member of the Huntington Beach Union High School District Governing Board. Carey was  first elected to that board in 2018, and was re-elected for another four years in this year’s General Election on Nov. 8.

Election of the 2023-2024 Democratic Club Board of Directors will be held during the Nov. 30 membership meeting.  Members will also have an opportunity to discuss the results of the General Election and brainstorm about the future. Of special interest will be the Jan. 31 run-off election for the seat on the Seal Beach City Council. 

The last time Leisure World residents living in Seal Beach City Council District 5 voted for their representative on the Council, there was only one candidate on the ballot.  In this year’s General Election, four candidates ran to represent District 5 ,which covers the western half of the community.  

None of the four 2022 candidates for District 5 received 50% + 1 of the votes.  As a result, the two who received the most votes—Mariann Klinger and Nathan Steele—will face one another in the Jan. 31 run-off.  

Klinger is currently serving on the city’s Planning Commission—a post she has held for the past seven years. She was appointed to this position by City Council member Sandra Massa-Lavitt. 

The Democratic Club will support Klinger during the weeks leading up to the Jan. 31 election.

Jennie Mathilde Walsh


Jennie Mathilde Walsh, a 13-year resident of Leisure World, died Nov. 18 at her home. She was 97.

Born in Ketchikan, Alaska, on March 21, 1925, Jennie was the only child of a pioneer Alaskan fishing boat captain Otto Bindpage and his wife, Ione. After high school graduation, Jennie first moved to California to attend Scripps College in 1943. 

 A year later she married U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Vincent Walsh, who had been stationed in Ketchikan and served in the Alaskan Campaign in World War II. 

The couple settled in Southern California and were married for 63 years until his death in 2007.

A homemaker and accomplished seamstress, Jennie enjoyed playing and watching golf. She and Vince were longtime members of Chevy Chase Golf Course in Glendale and later the Golf Course of Oregon in Albany, Oregon. 

Jennie raised three children, one daughter, Dawn Hoeger, who preceded her in death, and two sons, Douglas Walsh (Kathleen) and Daniel Walsh (Debbie). 

She is also survived by son-in-law Dennis Hoeger, three grandchildren, Darren Hoeger, Maree Hoeger and Michael Walsh and three great-grandchildren, Colin Troman, Sebastian Walsh and Madeline Walsh.

She enjoyed her later years at Leisure World where she became an avid gardener, often seen basking amid the amazing plant display on her sunny Mutual 9 patio.

Assembly of God

Service/Gathering Times: Sunday morning at 10:30 in Clubhouse 3, Room 2; Wednesday morning Bible study at 10 in Clubhouse 3, Room 2. The Hymn Sing will be held Sunday, Nov. 27, at 6 p.m. in the Clubhouse 3 Lobby.

Sermon for this week:   Pastor Chuck Franco will continue  his  series  titled “What is Truth?” this weekend. The third installment of the series is related to the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  One of the distinctives of Pentecostalism is the initial evidence of the infilling of the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues.  While this experience has been frequently misunderstood and mishandled, it is a gift from God, described and validated in scripture.  Pastor Chuck will bring his sermon titled “The Evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit” in the Sunday morning service on Nov. 27.  He will expand on why the gift is given, its place in the church and its value to the believer.  

The Hymn Sing is this Sunday evening at 6. in the Clubhouse 3 Lobby.  All LWers who enjoy singing traditional hymns and fellowship are invited to participate.

Bible Study:  The study of the book of Titus continues to draw parallels to today’s society and issues of modern culture, demonstrating the absolute consistency of Biblical truth.  Students are engaged, and the discussion is thought-provoking.  

Contact: More information about the church can be found at www.lwassemblyofgod.com.

Those who would like prayer, personal contact from a pastor or a DVD of the Sunday morning sermon can contact pastors Chuck and Sheryl Franco by calling 562-357-4360 or emailing pastorchuck@lwassemblyofgod.com. Carolyn van Aalst is also available to receive prayer requests at 562-343-8424.

Pastor Chuck’s sermons can be accessed on the Faithlife app under “Leisure World Assembly of God,” where people can also give online.

Community Church

All residents are invited to Community Church’s first annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Residents can shop for festive home-made baked goods, knit and crochet items, cards and crafts.  Join Community Church for a “Bowl and a Roll” lunch for $7.  Nativity Scenes will be displayed along with a tour of the stained glass windows.

Luke’s Gospel says  about the end times that “about that day and hour no one knows.”  It can be refreshing to hear these words when there are so many voices claiming to know the moment of the end times. Jesus teaches his followers not to listen to these prognosticators but rather to be prepared and to work toward the world as God is calling it to be.  The way believers do that is to walk in the light and participate in what God is doing.  

This is the third week of Community Church’s Extended Advent as the church looks at the season of Advent as a time of development, rather than a time of waiting.  The development that is asked of believers is to learn to accept and embrace God’s love for each person as they are. When people embrace God’s love, they are released from a hidden burden and  can share that love with others. This accepting love that is shared between people rises together like a warm loaf of bread.  

The word Gospel means “good news,” and Community Church’s mission is to spread the good news, both in person and online. 

As a faith community in Leisure World, Community Church continues to celebrate its 60-year history here and the legacies of those who founded and grew the church. While the future remains a mystery, the members of Community Church are dedicated to celebrating each day that is given to them. All are welcome  to join the church.

Entrances to the church may be found both at the front of the church and by the pedestrian gate near the shopping center. 

 The church no longer requires proof of vaccination in the sanctuary; masking is optional. Community Church also offers virtual worship on Zoom and Facebook for those who cannot attend in person.  

Those who want more information or are in need without another way to address it may call the church office at 562-431-2503. 

First Christian Church

First Christian Church’s prayers for the community include asking for the Lord to keep all Leisure World residents in his care and that his bountiful love is felt by all who take part in services at First Christian Church.   

This month, First Christian Church will receive special offerings to be sent to a local homeless shelter to help with extra meals for the holidays. For more information, call the church and leave a message and someone will reply at earliest opportunity.    

Message From the Pastor 

Pastor Bruce Humes’ message this week will reveal the beginning of the human race and the promise that Eve’s offspring, Jesus, would be the savior of the human race.

Thus far in the book of Genesis, Adam had called his companion “woman,” but in Genesis 3:20, he names her Eve: “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve because she was the mother of all living.” 

The name Adam gave Eve means “life or life giver.” There were no children at this point,  just Adam, uniquely designed in the image of God, and his wife, Eve. From this, believers know that people are all descendants of this first family, Adam and his wife Eve. There is but one human race, born of one man and one woman.   

It was by faith that Adam named the woman Eve and that she would be the first to bear children and through her, all mankind would be born. 

Genesis 3:15 states that from Eve’s descendants would come the Messiah himself,  who would “crush the head of the serpent that had entered the garden in his attempt to have his own way with the man and woman that God had created.”

First  Corinthians 15:45 says: that “Adam became a living being, the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.” The revelation of the last Adam in the New Testament is a testimony of God’s original plan to allow man to have eternal life through Adam and Eve.   

Weekend Services

Traditional Sunday services are from 9:30-10:45 a.m., with hymnal music led by Pat Kogak at the piano. 

 This week the talented Don and Beverly Sunday will sing a duet.

Scripture of the Week

A Psalm for Thanksgiving:

“Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before him with joyful singing. Know that the Lord himself is God; it is he who has made us and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.  Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise.  Give thanks to him, bless his name. For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And his faithfulness to all generations,”  Psalm 100.


First Christian Church is located on Northwood Road behind Carport 125. For more information, call 562-431-8810.

LW Baptist

The Great Commission assigns believers to offer God’s salvation to the ends of the Earth. Amazingly, with modern technology and missionary outreach, every believer can participate in the mission. Jesus promises to be with believers in this enterprise for his glory. 

LWers can learn more about the Great Commission and a believer’s individual role in it at LW Baptist’s Sunday’s service on Nov. 27. The choir will echo the message’s themes with the gospel song, “Jesus Saves.” 

The women’s Bible study group will meet on Monday, Nov. 28, at 10 a.m. The group will finish its study on the book “Serving God With all Your Mind,” and announce a new study for the following week. The Energizers group will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 30,  at 3 p.m. to learn about how to wait on God from Psalm 37. 

For more information about the church, call 562-430-8598.

Congregation Sholom

Congregation Sholom will hold services via Zoom with Rabbi Eric Dangott on Friday, Nov. 25, at 6:30 p.m. Rabbi Mike Mymon will lead the hybrid services on Saturday, Nov. 26, in Clubhouse 3, Room 9, and via Zoom at 10 a.m.  

To receive a Zoom invitation for any of the services, call or text Jeff Sacks at 714-642-0122.  

This week’s Torah portion is Toldot from the book of Genesis.  Toldot (Generations) opens with the births of Isaac and Rebecca’s twins, Jacob and Esau. Esau sells his birthright to Jacob in exchange for soup. Isaac and Rebecca travel to Gerar, where Isaac makes a peace treaty with King Abimelech. Isaac gives Jacob the blessing meant for Esau, and Jacob runs away to his uncle Laban.   

Congregation Sholom has served Leisure World since 1962. It offers a traditional Jewish service in person and online.

Those who want to become a member of Congregation Sholom should call Howard Brass at 714-396-0121 for a membership packet.

Faith Christian Assembly

“Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God,” Psalm 92:13 (New Kings James Version). 

All people want to flourish. Being planted in God’s house, the church, believers can expect to flourish based on hearing the promise that comes from the word of God. 

Often, people try to achieve self-improvement in many ways, but when people look to the word of God, it says that getting planted in a church will bring the growth that leads to a flourishing life. This growth can be found through relationships and community, learning what a person’s true identity in the Lord is and his love for us through reading the Bible. 

Some people may think of going to church as an obligation or duty, a place with rituals and rules. But it’s not so people can rest assured by the verse in Psalm 92:13 that it’s something more. There is a supernatural exchange that takes place when people go to meet God in his house, alongside his people, in the freedom and joy that God intended.  

Those who are considering visiting or joining a new church are invited to join Faith Christian Assembly. The church has a welcoming and warm congregation with a Bible-based message taught each week. 

Faith Christian Assembly’s Sunday service times are 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., with the pre-service prayer at beginning at 5. The weekly Bible study is in the main sanctuary every Wednesday at 11 a.m. 

To receive a copy of the church’s free monthly newsletter or to receive more information, contact the office at 562-598-9010 during business hours Tuesday through Friday or email contact@fcachurch.net. The church is located at 13820 Seal Beach Blvd. People can also visit the church website at www.FCAchurch.net.

Redeemer Lutheran

Redeemer Lutheran Church Council VicePresident Jerry Brady will deliver a sermon titled “Counting Sheep as We Try to Sleep” on Sunday, Nov. 27.

Ample parking is provided.
