LW never left the Golden Age Thousands have benefited from 50 years of philanthropy

by Cheryl Falconer

GAF board member

The spirit of Leisure World is defined by the Golden Age Foundation (GAF), the largest, oldest, volunteer-driven philanthropic nonprofit in the community. 

For 50 years, the GAF’s mission has been to empower people to live purposeful, healthy, quality lives in their own homes and community as they age. Its volunteers devote their time and talent to make life better on every level for residents.

The GAF is entirely funded by donations that are used to support safe, active, independent living for the entire community.

GAF Directors

There are 12 residents on the Golden Age Foundation Board of Directors who serve as trustees for all the projects funded by the GAF: Anna Derby, GAF president; Carl Kennedy, GAF vice president and Hospitality program chair; Heeja Alameida, director of Finance; Beth Greely, IT chair; Brenda Thompson, Mobility Aids program chair; Diana Lambert, Income Tax Program chair; Fara Macartney, recording secretary; Geneva Potepan, correspondence secretary; Martha Goossens history chair; Shery Wells, archives chair; Paula Snowden, membership chair; and Cheryl Falconer, 50th Anniversary Committee.

GAF’s First Focus

In the early years, the primary focus of the GAF was to improve the health and well-being of Leisure World residents. It sponsored flu vaccine clinics, diabetic clinics and a smoking cessation clinic. To facilitate routine blood pressure screening for LW residents, the GAF purchased automated blood pressure machines for the on-site health center. 

The early board also provided funds to purchase a projector for lectures and presentations in the health center. One of the most attended lectures was the emphysema clinic, with over 300 shareholders in attendance. 

The GAF sponsored colon cancer screening awareness and hemoccult colorectal projects, breast cancer self exam lectures, nutrition classes and CPR training classes. In 1977, the Mobility Aids Program was launched with a $1,200 grant from the GAF. The Emergency Meals Program began with monthly donations from the GAF. Also in 1977, GAF volunteers provided the first Property Tax Rebate Program.

GAF in the 1980s

During the 1980s, the GAF started the on-site Lifeline Program and provided funds to the early LW Disaster Preparedness Program for the purchase of emergency equipment and radio transceivers. 

The GAF Income Tax Preparation Program began with hundreds of shareholders served each year.

In 1987, the first LW resident donated his unit to the GAF, which sold for $41,000. 

GAF in the 1990s

The 1990s marked a new era for the GAF with capital investments throughout the community. GAF grants were used to purchase a 50-inch TV and VCR for Clubhouse 3, and a projector, computer and an interface device to connect the computer to the big screen in Clubhouse 4.

Another $14,000 was donated to upgrade the sound systems in Clubhouses 1 and 2. The GAF made several donations for upgrades to the Amphitheater, including a donation of $31,000 to purchase a new sound system, and a grant to the Leisure World Library for new equipment.

In 1999, the GAF purchased a handicap accessible bus for $49,000 and began underwriting the Rossmoor Bus Service with a donation of $18,000 per year. 

Other donations included camera and battery pack equipment for the Video Producers Club, startup money for the LW Historical Society, the purchase of sheet music and instruments for the LW Orchestra, and bus benches throughout the community at an initial cost of $91,000 for 14 locations. 

More than 125 GAF-funded bus benches and shelters have been placed throughout LW. Funding for health-related events and education continued throughout the 1990s. One of the final GAF projects of the decade was the 55 Alive Mature Driver Improvement Program.

GAF in the 2000s

The first GAF Hospitality Center opened in 2000 to provide coffee, treats and a place for shareholders to socialize. In 2003, the Hospitality Center moved to its current location in Clubhouse 6. GAF spent $20,000 to purchase furniture and equipment for the facility, which has been a popular social hub for residents for the past 20 years. The center is open Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m.

Throughout the 2000s, the GAF funded and lent volunteer support to the annual flu vaccine clinic at a cost of $10,000 per year and paid for the Rossmoor Bus program to transport shareholders to the shopping center. 

Throughout the decade, the GAF contributed to worthwhile projects, including $23,000 for equipment for the gymnasium; $14,500 for additional equipment for the Mobility Aide Program; $5,000 to purchase risers and acoustical shells for the LW Chorale; $8,000 to upgrade the sound system in Clubhouse 2; $5,000 toward the expansion of the LW Library; $10,000 toward a respite care program located at Redeemer Lutheran Church and $2,500 a year for a battery recycling and fluorescent light bulb program.

More Donations to 

Benefit LW

There were many large and small projects funded by the GAF during the mid-2000s. In 2012, the estate of Jack Schiffiler made possible a $120,000 donation for new exercise equipment in the large new exercise room. His bequest also funded a handicap accessible bus at a cost of $130,000. 

Among other services, GAF sponsored a quarterly shredding service; donated $15,000 to the GRF for the installation of Serenity Park behind Mission Park in 2018; and purchased a third handicap accessible bus scheduled to be delivered this summer. 

GAF’s Pandemic Response

As the pandemic began, the GAF Board mobilized a COVID-19 crisis response that included volunteers making cotton face masks and distributing them to residents and GRF employees and distributed 45,000 disposable face masks. Volunteers worked the Optum/GRF COVID-19 vaccine program and flu vaccine clinics at the Health Care Center that drew 5,000 residents.

The GAF made a $120,000 donation to Meals on Wheels Long Beach and Meals on Wheels Orange County to make sure no LW resident went hungry due to isolation or lack of resources. Despite the pandemic, GAF volunteers continued to serve the community with mobility aids delivered to residents’ homes, curbside drop-off shredding services and remote income tax preparation service. From 2020-2022, a hearing loop was donated to the Knowledge and Learning Center at a cost of $13,500; the Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) Program was given a grant for a backpack giveaway program; a social services collaboration team was developed and located in Building 5 to bring services into LW.

Betterment of LW 

Life Continues

GAF-funded programs and projects have enriched all aspects of the community. The GAF has given more than $1.4 million in contributions for the betterment of LW life. Tens of thousands of volunteers have given their time and talents over the past 50 years working to ensure Leisure World residents have what they need to age well at home.

New assessment payment system is operational

On May 1, the GRF began transitioning to a software system called CINC, which includes a new payment processing tool for residents. Welcome letters with important registration information were sent to every household and should have been received by now.

People who have direct debit through the GRF don’t need to do anything but others will have to register for the new community portal.

What You Need to Know

• To learn how to register for the community’s new online portal log on to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyveFNCiGNA&feature=youtu.be. 

• To register for the CINC Community Portal, visit https://lwsb.cincwebaxis.com.

• There is no charge to register for the portal. (Additional charges on shareholder accounts are most likely for residential repairs; bills for those services will be coming soon.)

• To register for CINC, member information must match CINC’s account information, so use the information provided in the welcome letter that was sent each LW household. If member and account information don’t correspond to that in the system, you will need to have GRF staff validate and approve the registration before access can be granted.

• Payments submitted to the lockbox or through the click-to-pay website this month will be accepted.

LWer’s vigilance deters attempted phone scam

by Emma DiMaggio


Last week, Mutual 7 resident Barbara Mogan received a suspicious phone call that could’ve resulted in the loss of $49K. Luckily, Mogan identified the scam before it could escalate.

The call had several tell-tale signs of a scam. First, she received a text from an unknown number claiming that someone had attempted to transfer $49K from her money market account. It provided a number to call for more information, so she called the number. 

This was her first mistake: seniors should be suspicious texts or phone calls from numbers they don’t recognize. Scammers will often impersonate someone else, such as a financial institution, a tech support line, a postal company, charity, IRS worker, Medicare professional, insurance broker, pharmacist or family member. 

“In retrospect, I should’ve known it was a scam long before I did,” Mogan said.

 The man who answered the phone had an Indian accent and claimed to be a representative from her bank, “a big fat lie,” Mogan said. 

He repeatedly transferred her call, putting her on the line with a “supervisor,” and then another, to make the call seem legitimate. 

They continuously asked her if she lived alone and if she had another phone line, she said. 

In retrospect, Mogan realized the scammers were trying to prevent her from calling a friend or relative to help her verify the call.

They told her to go to the bank and withdraw $49K. They even told her what to say to the teller to reduce suspicion: that she was having work done on her house and wanted to pay the workers in cash. They told her to remain on the line while she withdrew the money. 

This is another tactic scammers use. By keeping their victim on the phone, it prevents the person from looking into the call further. A quick Google search, or a call to a trusted family member or neighbor, would reveal their ruse. 

As she was getting ready to head to the bank, she realized the call was a scam. She hung up the phone and went to her neighbors’ house. Her neighbor called Mogan’s bank on her phone, who confirmed that the call was a scam.

The scammers continued to call her back repeatedly, but she didn’t pick up. She then blocked the phone number.

“It’s very convincing. I thought they were being nice,” Megan said. “I consider myself fairly intelligent, but I wasn’t that day.”

Here are some questions to ask yourself if you find yourself in a similar situation:

• Do I recognize the phone number? Is the call from a different area code or does the caller have an unfamiliar accent? You can’t always trust the caller ID on a call, because scammers can use computer software that makes it look like they’re calling from a legitimate organization. In reality, they’re often calling from another country. Don’t click on unsolicited emails, texts or social media messengers from strangers. 

• Does it seem urgent? Scammers will often create a false sense of urgency to give victims less time to think through the situation, often causing them to act against their better judgement. The scammers will often pose the situation as an emergency, and may get hostile and threaten their information for asking questions. 

• Are they asking me for personal information? Scammers will often try to get personal information from their victims, like account numbers, Social Security numbers, passwords, credit cards or other identifying information that can be sold to fraudsters or used to compromise your accounts. A reliable institution or agency will never require you to share sensitive information over the phone. 

• Are they asking me to transfer money out of my account via a wire transfer or through gift cards? A reliable institution will never ask you to send money via wire transfer, money order, cryptocurrency, payment app or gift card. Be suspicious of excuses for alternative forms of payment. 

• Are they preventing me from hanging up the phone? Scammers know that victims’ friends or family members will be able to identify the call as a scam, so they try to keep their victims busy to prevent them from reaching out for support. Always ask a trusted friend or family member if you’re suspicious of a call. 

Many, but not all, scams follow a similar pattern. 

These same tactics may be used in email or social media scams. When in doubt, ask for a second opinion. 

If you’ve been the victim of a scam, contact the Seal Beach Police Department at 562-799-4100 to make a report. 

Clubs can sell crafts at BBQ

Recreation is hosting its annual Fourth of July Classic Car Show & BBQ, and Recreation is calling out all artisan clubs to showcase and sell their crafts.  

This is Recreation’s largest event of the year, and clubs won’t want to miss an opportunity to engage with both Leisure Worlders and guests while enjoying food truck fare, live music, and classic cars from the Silver Fox Car Club. 

Artisans are an integral part of this event as spectators enjoy one-of-a-kind crafts and talents right inside LW’s walls. If a club would like to participate in the event, contact Recreation at 562-431-6586, ext. 476, or email mayokab@lwsb.com. 

This is exclusively for GRF craft clubs. Individuals may sell their crafts at the Fall Arts and Crafts Festival in November. Space is limited and filling up fast. This is a way to promote a club and attract new members, as well as to show off club members’ talents.

SBPD officer injured in collision

A Seal Beach police officer was injured in a traffic collision while responding to an emergency call for service.

On May 12 at about 12:16 p.m., an on-duty Seal Beach police officer responded with lights and sirens to an emergency medical call for service. The officer drove into the intersection at Seal Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway when his vehicle was struck by another car.

The officer sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The Orange County Fire Authority responded and transported the officer to a local hospital for evaluation. The officer was released from the hospital later that day. The driver of the other vehicle also sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene. Both the police car and the other vehicle were towed from the scene.

The Cypress Police Department is handling this investigation. The Los Alamitos Police Department is also assisting. The investigation is ongoing, and the cause of the collision is not immediately known.

Witnesses or anyone else with information is encouraged to contact the Cypress Police Department non-emergency dispatch line at 714-229-6600.

Coyote sightings increase in April

by Emma DiMaggio


It’s coyote denning season, which means residents may see more of these canines around their yards between dusk and dawn.

Mutual 1 resident Denise Dena Frank saw two coyotes wandering lawns in the early morning on May 4, and she’s not alone. 

In the April Security report, residents reported three coyote sightings: one near the North Gate, one in the Clubhouse 4 parking lot, and another near Mutual 14. All of the incidents occurred between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.

These sightings come as no surpise: an estimated 250,000 to 750,000 coyotes call California home, and they’re quite active after mating season, which takes place from January to March. 

That’s because, from March to May, coyotes give birth to their pups. 

They are protective of their young during this time and will be especially territorial near their dens. 

Long Beach Animal Care Services suggests the following precautions against coyotes:

• Never feed coyotes or any other wildlife.

• Keep pets and pet food inside. If feeding outside, feed pets during the day (no more than one hour) and remove the food and water bowls when finished.

• Stay close to your pet when taking them outdoors and always keeping them on a leash, especially from dusk through early morning hours.

• Remove fallen fruit from the ground.

• Bag food waste such as meat scraps or leftover pet food.

• Keep trash in containers with tight-fitting lids.

• Use “hazing” techniques to shoo away coyotes, such as standing tall, yelling and waving arms while approaching the coyote; use a whistle, air horn, bell or other device; bang pots or pans together; stomp your feet; using a water hose, pepper spray, or throw tennis balls or rocks at the coyote.

• Never run away from a coyote.

To report a coyote sighting to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, visit https://apps.wildlife.ca.gov/wir/incident/create. 

If there is an immediate threat to human life related to coyotes, residents should call 911. 

Residents are invited to share photos of their coyote sightings with the LW Weekly by sending them via email to emmad@lwsb.com.

Expect basin construction through June

They vividly bring this classic music to life for a new generation of audiences, authentically recreating the style, musicality, and essence of swing-era band music. They pepper their repertoire with contemporary pop hits to broaden their audience. 

The Velvetones play at  Clubhouse 4 on the first and third Sundays at 6 p.m. People are encouraged to grab their dancing shoes and join them this Sunday.

The orchestra has grown over the last two years and is almost complete. However, it needs an oboe player, French horn player and a drummer, plus another bass player. 

The orchestra rehearses on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in the Amphitheater. Anyone interested in joining should call Fred Reker at 615-898-0669 or email fredreker326@gmail.com.

As always, the concerts are free and refreshments are served at the end. It is a grand bargain and wonderful musical experience.

Hawaiian dance club will offer beginners class in June

A special class for absolute beginners will be offered in June. This six-week-session, starting on Tuesday, June 6, costs $25 and will be given from 1-2 p.m., upstairs in Clubhouse 6. 

To hula is to tell a story or describes a place through movements of the limbs and hips. In the beginners class, people can learn basic hula steps and two hula: one in the style of hula kahiko (ancient dance) and one in the style of hula ‘auana (modern dance). In olden days, kahiko (ancient hula) was used to honor the gods and chiefs. 

As the hula evolved under Western influence in the 19th and 20th centuries, a contemporary dance style, known as hula ‘auana, was developed. This class is also intended for those who would like to refine their hula dance style. For more information or to enroll, call 562-252-9676 or text 562-338-1502.

Besides practicing and learning hula, most Hui O Hula dancers have volunteered to share their hula skills by performing. 

On May 12, dancers welcomed and wished Mutual 5 newcomer Rosie Smith a happy birthday in hula. Dancers also look forward to entertaining the residents/patients of Alamitos West Health & Rehabilitation Center today, May 18.  

Dancers had the pleasure of centenarian Lyndell Phillips auditing the class as Hui O Hula dancers practiced. Sometimes she even danced along with her hands. 

Lyndell has lived in Mutual 12 since 1988. She worked at the LW Health Care Center, as a switchboard operator, from 1989 to 2009. Throughout the years, she also enjoyed helping friends and neighbors as well as at the Friends of the Library, LW blood drive and more. In 1996, the Golden Age Foundation recognized her volunteer work with an award/plaque. Lyndell will be 101 in August.

All are welcome to class or to schedule a performance. Call 562-431-2242 for performance information.

Church hosts post-COVID canata

The Long Beach Chapter of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) and Covenant Church will present “Unconditional Love” by British composer Howard Goodall on Sunday, May 21, at 4 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Covenant Presbyterian Church, 607 E. Third St. Long Beach. 

The public is invited to attend the free event. 

The choral work will be the centerpiece of the annual guild service and installation of officers for the local AGO chapter. Leisure World resident Peter Bates is the the church’s minister of music and resident organist.

The Goodall cantata was composed as a musical response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The composer refers to “Unconditional Love” as a “work of gratitude, remembrance and of hope for a world rebuilt. It gives thanks to all those whose sacrifice and selflessness have been so powerful and moving a feature of the COVID-19 crisis. It honors those who have died, as carers, as patients, as family members and dear friends. It also reflects how much we took for granted and the simple needs and pleasures that became ordinary lifelines during the lockdown.” 

The church has assembled a professional brass ensemble and choral octet, who—along with soprano soloist Maria Schafer and pianist Althea Waites—will perform the half-hour work, according to Bates, who will conduct the work from the console of the church’s pipe organ. In addition, the audience will be invited to join in singing three hymns. 

For additional information, call the church’s music department at at 562-437-0958, ext. 130.

South Coast Orchid Society

The South Coast Orchid Society will meet Monday, May 22, from 7-9 p.m. at Whaley Park Community Center, 5620 E. Atherton St., Long Beach, 90815.

Member Column

by Man Cho

LW contributor

On the recent occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Korea-U.S. alliance, I want to recognize that we have been blood allies for 70 years. The president of South Korea recently visited the president of the United States to commemorate that alliance. 

At this late stage of my life, I would like to express my gratitude to the ones who helped me and apologize to the ones to whom I did wrong.

I served in the Korean Navy for three years as a medical officer and in the U.S. Army for eight years as a psychiatrist. 

I was born in Busan, South Korea, a year before the end of World War II, in 1944, hearing the U.S. Air Force B29 fly in the sky. 

Thanks to the assistance of the United Nations, led by the United States, Japan’s 36-year colonial rule and oppression over Korea finally came to an end, resulting in Korea’s liberation. However, on June 25, 1951, when North Korea invaded South Korea and threatened its existence, 16 countries of the United Nations (Great Britain, Canada, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Colombia, Ethiopia, South Africa, New Zealand, Türkiye, Greece, Thailand, Philippines and Luxembourg) participated in the war to save our country. I thank all of your fathers, brothers, sisters, and all the veterans who fought for our freedom.

I studied at the University of Connecticut and became a psychiatrist. From 1978-1983, I treated many PTSD patients who were Vietnam War veterans at the 121 U.S. military hospitals in Korea. After that, from 1986-1996, I treated many veterans and civilians who suffered from PTSD at the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health. PTSD psychiatric diagnosis originated from Vietnam War victims. 

During the 1992 L.A. Riots, 2,300 Korean-owned shops were burned, destroyed and robbed. My office treated more than 1,000 Korean Americans who had PTSD from the L.A. Riots. About 500 people with severe trauma symptoms were treated by five Korean-speaking psychiatrists. I have kept their psychiatric treatment records for 31 years in case they sue the government for psychological trauma. I can then be a witness of their illness and suffering. Some of them have gotten worse as they age. As a psychiatrist, about 30% of my time has been spent treating patients suffering from trauma such as war and riots.

I hold on to one meaningful and hopeful aspiration—that a prominent leader, such as the mayor and police chief of Los Angeles, governor of California or even a president, will acknowledge the tragedy suffered by the victims of the L.A. Riots 31 years ago, provide them with appropriate compensation and promise to support their treatment to help restore their well-being. 

It would be similar to the U.S. government compensation to Japanese Americans who were sent to concentration camps during World War II. 

In the human world, there is always a conflict between the strong and weak people. Also, there are people who are sick and traumatized. 

However, I remind myself that caring for those who suffer is at the core of human nature and should be a fundamental part of being human.

Thank you again, fellow veterans.

LW Pool Club

On May 8, the LW Pool Club had its final regular season play for the American league. In the Money split its match with PJJ.  Teams won six games each, and didn’t play the last game since it would have no bearing on the standings. In the Money’s Kurt Bourhenne had the most single wins for the A players on Monday with 21. Linda Patton of Right on Cue had the most single wins as a B with 18, and John Barth had 23 single wins as a C player.

Right on Cue won 11-2 over the Renegades, and also all six of its single matches. Linda Patton won six games. The Cue Crew edged the Rail Runners 7-6.  Shery Wells had a big night winning six games and both of her single matches.

The final standings for Monday were In the Money with 107 wins and 87 losses; Right on Cue with 106 and 89; and PJJ with 103 and 91. In the playoffs, Right on Cue will play PJJ eight ball to two wins and then face the league leader, In the Money, in a two out of three match to meet the winner of the Wednesday league for the championship.

In the Wednesday league, the league-leading Favorites got off to a rocky start losing its first four games to Bank It. It came back to tie the match at 6-6, but lost the final eight ball game when Rusty Aquino made a long cut shot on the eighth ball. Paul Shellenberger won both his single matches for Bank It.

Triple Threat clinched third place by beating U3 9-4.  Connie Terry and Russ Black scored five wins for Triple Threat.

The Ruffians led the league nearly all season long and only trailed the Favorites in the last week by two games.  They came up big on the final day by beating Milly’s Boys 11-2. Ruffy Ramos and Glenn Everson both won all seven of their games for the Ruffians. Their only losses were two single matches won by Roy Mittlestead.

The top single matches for Wednesday went to A player Dave Silva with 21 wins, B player Roy Mittlestead with 18 wins and C player Connie Adkins with 18 wins.

In the playoffs, second-place Favorites will meet third-place Triple Threat in eight ball, and the winner will go up against the first place Ruffians.

 On May 12, the Friday morning league played a total of 24 games with four teams. The Shooters shattered the Bumpers winning 10 games out of 12. The all-game winners for the Shooters were Fred Carpenter, Carol Schubeck, Shel Magnuson and captain Carol Johnson.

Understanding Rheumatoid Arthritis

By C.J. Blomquist

Optum Senior Communications Strategist

Rheumatoid arthritis is a common inflammatory disorder that not many people are familiar with. On May 25, the HCC will feature a special presentation on managing rheumatoid arthritis in Optum HCC Conference Room 1 from 1-2 p.m. The presenter, physician assistant Dennis Bansil, will talk about signs of rheumatoid arthritis and share tips on how to make living with it easier including the following:

Exercise. It may seem counterintuitive, but staying active can help with managing arthritis pain. Low impact exercises including swimming and walking can help the muscles get stronger and keep the joints flexible. Even a daily 30-minute walk can make a big difference.

Get rest. Getting plenty of rest allows the body to recover whether from flare-ups or exercising.  Giving the joints a break during a flare-up can help reduce the inflammation and pain.

Ask for help. The aches and pains of arthritis aren’t just physical. They can also have an impact on mental health. When the flare-ups are rough, having a friend to help around the house or take the mind off pain with a good conversation can keep the spirit positive.
