Remembering former GRF Board president Thomas Barratt

by Ruth Osborn


Former Mutual 15 resident Thomas E. Barratt, who served as GRF director from 1998-2013, died June 28, 2023, at the age of 85 in Duluth, Minnesota. That is where he and his wife, Mary Jean, moved in 2013 to be closer to family. 

During his 16 years of GRF service, he served six terms as president of the board, two terms as vice president, four terms as treasurer and one term as corporate secretary. 

Barratt’s community service in LW began in 1995, when he was appointed president of Mutual 15. He stayed on the Mutual board until he was elected to the GRF board in 1998. He became GRF president in June 2000 at the age of 62, taking over from Mildred Tuttle.

During his tenure, the GRF Board opened a new Health Care Center in 1998, oversaw the millennium celebration in 2000, dedicated Veterans Plaza in 2004, expanded the Minifarms in 2006 and dedicated the newly expanded LW Library in 2007. He was instrumental in opening North Gate Road in 2008 and chaired LW’s 50th anniversary committee, which executed a memorable celebration, including a parade, country fair, entertainment, three themed dinners and a host of other fanfare, in 2012. 

Mary Greytak, 101, of Mutual 6, remembers that June day in 2012. She and her late husband, Gary, had set up a booth for their Cribbage Club, and it was a busy day with a lot of moving parts for her, Gary, Tom and Mary Jean. 

“After it was all over, we were just exhausted,” Mary recalled, “and we went to a little restaurant and sat outside under a full moon. There was a breeze, and we had one little drink to celebrate that it was all over, and it went so well. It’s just one of so many good memories.” 

Barrett is perhaps best remembered here for his unflappable leadership during turbulent years when Leisure World was at a legal crossroads: Was the community a nonprofit corporation, as was its designation since the 1960s, or a common interest development subject to the transparency and accountability provisions of the Davis-Sterling Act? Davis Sterling requires that certain association records be made available to residents. 

For four years ending in 2008, the GRF was embroiled in a lawsuit seeking to redefine LW. The suit was filed by seven LW residents. 

The GRF contended that Leisure World was structured differently from most private communities, such as gated subdivisions and condominiums that are ruled by homeowners’ associations, and that the laws for these associations did not apply.

Some residents disagreed, saying LW was a homeowner’s association, and financial and management records should be open. 

The California Fourth District Appellate Court ultimately ruled in favor of the residents in a countersuit that the Golden Rain filed against them. The decision reaffirmed a lower court ruling that the GRF is indeed a common interest development so it must follow state rules governing homeowner’s associations.

The results of the closely watched case redefined how retirement communities like Leisure World are governed. The lawsuit ultimately became case law for California. 

It was a time of conflict, drastic change and high emotion on all sides of the issue, but through it all, Barratt persevered with a unifying influence. 

“Through his leadership and educational columns in the weekly paper, Tom tried hard to keep the shareholders informed about the ramifications of having GRF declared a HOA,” said Mary Milhone of Mutual 2. 

“I also have fond memories of his many efforts to set up the computer lab in Clubhouse 5 for shareholder use and to have computer lit classes. I was employed as an adult ed teacher for Garden Grove Unified School District at the time, and he allowed me to teach the very first class! He also taught at the lab for many years.”

Barratt also served as president of the Golden Age Foundation, Leisure World’s philanthropic self-help organization. 

Joan Shramek remembers his service and how Barratt encouraged her to accept the GAF presidency, which she held for three “wonderful years. I could not have done it without him,” she said. “I have lost a dear friend. He and (Shramek’s husband) Frank are chatting like old times in heaven now.”

Barratt was born on April 6, 1938, in Pasadena, California. He grew up in Southern California and enjoyed surfing, tennis and sailing. He met and married his wife, Mary Jean, in 1965. He earned a history degree from California State University, Los Angles. History remained a lifelong interest. He spent a lot of time helping to collect and curate Leisure World’s history as a member of the LW Historical Society, a group that thrives today under the leadership of Margaret Gillon. 

Barratt also graduated from the Air War College, beginning a 37-year career of military service. He enlisted in the California National Guard serving part time as second lieutenant. 

He became a full time California National Guardsman a few years after he and Mary Jean married, commuting to Santa Monica and then to Los Alamitos, where the couple relocated when his guard unit moved there. 

He eventually joined the United States Army Reserve in Los Alamitos, and from there, he was promoted to colonel and given a new assignment in Forest Park, Illinois. When this four-year assignment ended, he retired from the U.S. Army. The Barratts returned to California, choosing Seal Beach Leisure World as their home for the next 20 years. 

After 48 years of southern California living, Tom and Mary Jean moved to Duluth in 2013. He served for nine years as treasurer for their senior cooperative in Duluth, a port city on Lake Superior. 

The couple enjoyed life there, with its ever-changing seasons, the Duluth Playhouse and the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. 

Throughout their marriage, the Barratts traveled extensively in the United States, Europe, Australia and China, and enjoyed lives as adventurous diners.

“He believed in treating all humanity with kindness and fairness,” said Mary Jean. 

Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Mary Jean Barratt of Duluth, Minnesota; sister Sally Van Sittert of Ocean Springs, Mississippi; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held July 6 at St. Lawrence Church in Duluth.


What to know about upcoming RFID tags

Have questions? GRF has answers. Dive into the comprehensive answers staff has gathered to frequently asked questions related to the upcoming gate access program.

When will the gate access system go live?

The goal is to go fully live with the system sometime by the fourth quarter of the year (October-December). There are a few milestones to hit before the timeline is narrowed down. These include: successful import of data to the new software, completion of RFID tag distribution, approval by the Orange County Fire Authority and final installation of the barrier arms and license plate recognition (LPR) cameras.

What is RFID?

RFID stands for radio frequency identification. An RFID reader can read an RFID tag from a certain distance. With a valid RFID tag, the barrier arm will raise, allowing a vehicle to pass into the community. 

Where will the RFID tag be placed on my car?

The RFID tag is a headlamp tag and will be placed on the left side front headlamp of your vehicle.

Do I have to pay for an RFID tag?

Each member will be issued one RFID tag for free (one tag per member). Additional tags can be purchased, up to the number of vehicles permitted by your Mutual per the fee schedule, to be determined by the GRF Board of Directors.

What if my tag is lost/destroyed/etc?

You may purchase a replacement tag at a fee to be determined by the GRF Board. Exceptions would be on a case-by-case basis.

How many RFID tags do I get and at what cost?

The initial issuance of RFID tags will be one per member (vehicle) at no charge. 

I have additional cars, can I get more RFID tags?

You may purchase additional RFID tags up to the number of vehicles permitted by your Mutual per the fee schedule to be determined by the GRF Board of Directors.

Do motor scooters or bicycled need an RFID?

You are not required to purchase an RFID tag for motor scooters or bicycles. Please continue to show your GRF ID to enter the community.

Are decals going away?

No, decals are not going away. Decals are for recognition of the vehicle for your Mutual.

Can I get an RFID tag without a decal?

No, you must have a valid decal to get an RFID tag. Before getting an RFID tag, please be sure to visit the Decal Office to obtain a valid decal. 

Will we still get the four annual guest passes?

No, the four annual guest passes will not be issued in 2025. Instead, each unit is permitted up to four guests to be listed as permanent guests in the new system—Proptia.

What is a permanent guest?

A permanent guest is a person you designate as always being permitted into the community.

How many permanent guests may I have?

You can list up to four permanent guests; other guests can be called in as a temporary guest.

How does my permanent guest get into the community?

Upon the first entrance to the community by your permanent guest, they will need to stop and show the gate guard their ID. After confirmation, they will be printed a pass good for 90 days entry.

How does a permanent guest get an updated pass?

Once a permanent guest’s paper pass expires, they simply stop at the guard gate, present their driver’s license and they will receive a new printed pass good for another 90 days.

Can I change my permanent guest?

Yes. Simply report the changes to the Security Office or update your guests yourself through the Proptia portal.

Can I still call in guests?

Yes. You can still call in guests to the Security Office. You will need to provide your confirmation code to verify you are authorized to call in guests.

What is a confirmation code?

A confirmation code advises Security that you are authorized to call in visitors. This can be a number code or a word.

Is there another way to add a guest for entry?

Yes. With our new Proptia software, you will be able to set up a login to the online portal. In this portal, you can add and remove any temporary or permanent guests as you wish.

What is a mobile pass?

 A mobile pass is a pass that can be emailed to the guest coming into the community prior to entry. 

How does a guest use a mobile pass? 

The guest will show the mobile pass to the gate attendant. At that time, the attendant will print a paper pass for the guest to place on their vehicle’s dashboard.

How do I know my guest was put in the system?

You will now have the option to opt into notifications by email, text or both when a guest is successfully registered into the system.

Can I be notified when my guest comes through the gate?

Yes. You will now have the option to opt in to notifications by email, text or both when your guest is scanned in at the entrance gates.

Do my guests still have to check in at the main gate?

No. Now, your guests can go to any of the three entrances to be allowed entrance into the community.

Will there still be traffic control at the main gate?

Yes. Traffic control will still be present to ensure the flow of traffic at the main gate.

What is an LPR camera?

A LPR camera is a license plate reader camera. These cameras will be stationed at the entrances and exits of the community to capture the license plates of each vehicle.

Why are there going to be LPR cameras?

The LPR cameras capture a license plate so it is automatically printed on the pass. This will also further assist the Seal Beach Police Department in any police investigations.



CINC resident portal training sessions

The GRF has transitioned to a software system called CINC, which includes Mutual account history, documents, communication and more payment options for residents. CINC resident portal training sessions are scheduled for 1-3 p.m. on Monday, July 31; 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 1; and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 2. All training is held in the Learning Center in Clubhouse 3. 

Staff will be onsite to give residents hands-on demonstrations of the CINC system and help them register via the online portal. RSVPs are not required. Walk-ins are welcome.


GRF Car Sale

Each fourth Saturday, authorized residents have the opportunity to sell any used motorized vehicle in the Administration parking lot from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. The next sale is July 22. 

Vehicles must have current DMV registrations, GRF decals and be insured. In addition to cars, motorhomes, motorcycles, golf carts, bikes, trikes and scooters may be sold. 

The owner or representative does not need to be present but is allowed to display a single “for sale” sign no larger than 18” by 24” on the vehicle to include a phone number.

The sale is open to Leisure World residents only and the guests they call in. 

The public will not be able to sell at the events. This is a self-managed event where residents can meet and buy or sell a vehicle on their own. 

For more information, contact the Recreation Department at 562-431-6586 ext. 398.




Community bids fond farewell to a favorite LW couple

by Patti Green

LW contributor

We are saying “see you soon” to two of Leisure Worlds favorite residents. Mutual 4, especially, would like to thank, pay tribute and give our well wishes to longtime community servants Mike and Gail Levitt.

Shortly after moving to Leisure World in the late 1990s, Mike joined the Mutual 4 Board of Directors, slowly rising to president. 

In 2004, Mike was elected to the Seal Beach City Council, representing District 5, which encompasses much of Leisure World. 

Dividing his time between Mutual representation and Seal Beach business proved a real challenge. When elected by the city council to the office of mayor, Mike began attending conferences up and down the state. The work often took him away from Mutual governance, so he resigned from the Mutual board for a time.

After being termed out of city council, Mike was invited back onto the Mutual board, again rising to president.  

Mike will serve in that capacity in Mutual 4 until he moves on to his and Gail’s next adventure.  The couple is moving from Leisure World to another senior community in Beaumont, California. 

The couple has purchased a home in this smaller community and it includes a big yard and a garage, where Mike will “finally have a garage to store all the stuff I’ll never need in,” he said.

During their quarter century in Leisure World, Mike and Gail were members and officers of several clubs and groups. They were active in the RV Club, Mini Farmers, Fun and Fitness Club, Friendly Couples Club and Rollin’ Thunder Golf Cart Club. Mike belonged to the American Legion Post 327 and the Lapidary Club. Also, because “man cannot live on bread alone,” he and Gail were members of The Wine Club and The Rat Pack Happy Hour Club.

Gail was known for her creative and organizational expertise. She served on the Golden Age Board of Directors and ran the Garden Club tours for years as well as serving on that club’s board of directors. She is president of the Bunco Club and belongs to the Yahtzee Club. She was once a Ceramics Club member, with Mike supervising the kilns. 

We will sorely miss Mike and Gail and, with full hearts, wish them all the best for many years to come.

Korean War experiences spark mixed memories

by Lynne Burt-Jenkins

LW contributor

Reading Grace Kim’s passionate description of episodes in the Korean War (June 22), which must have brought serious, fearful memories for the Koreans and Americans who lived through that time, also brought back some other memories of that time that affected me in a far different way.

In about 1956, our Methodist Episcopal Church, Vanderveer Park ME Church, located in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, welcomed a South Korean family to our community. The family, a mom and dad and a daughter and two sons, were the first and only Koreans I, and most others, had ever met.

The father had been a minister in Korea and had been taken captive by North Korean forces. He was forced to spend a few years in prison to “pay” for his resistance to North Korea. By doing so, they permitted his family to emigrate out of Korea and into the United States. The family was separated for about three years while he was in prison. Then, he was released and allowed to leave the country.

At the time, I was in my early teens. My best friend Margaret lived across the street from my family. We all attended the same church and sang in the choir. One Sunday, the Wang family was introduced to our congregation. The daughter was about my age and the two sons were just ending their teenage years. It was interesting to see that this family was really just like all our church families. We happily welcomed them to the U.S. and to Brooklyn.

For the next couple of years, I saw the Wang family mostly on Sundays. They were all very nice—to be expected of a Methodist minister’s family, right? It was easy to talk with each other, as we kids did.

Shortly after this time, I went to work in Manhattan and was not readily available during the weekdays, but I did see the daughter, whose name escapes me now, and occasionally the younger of the two sons. I presume the older son was also working during the day. They were too old to attend the Methodist Youth Fellowship and did not know how to play basketball, all of which took place either at our church or another local one. So most meetings were casual and laid back. Margaret dated the younger son for awhile.

There is not much to relate about the happenings then, but suffice it to say we all got along very well, and all my memories of that time are warm and happy. Shortly after this, my family left Brooklyn, and so I was never to see the Wangs again.

As for Grace Kim, I have found her also to be a warm and lovely person. 

It was so nice to have met them all. The memories of wartime are never good, but memories of friendships always are, no matter how long ago they may be.

Letter to the Editor


The LW Library is a very valuable asset here in Leisure World. I drop in almost every Thursday. As I am in Mutual 10, it is just a short walk over. 

On Thursday, I exchange the books I read for a new group. The staff is wonderful and accessible. This past Thursday I recognized a librarian who had been on leave. I mentioned to her that before she left, she told me that my favorite author had just come out with a new book, and it was already in circulation. So later, I asked another librarian about the book, and she found it for me. 

I also learned that I can place a new book on a list to add it to the library’s collection if it seems like a good match for the readers at LW. 

If you haven’t been to the library, you really must check it out. It has lots of space to sit in comfort and read, and there is a restroom.  Before you walk in, you will see a couple sitting on a bench. He is reading a book to her. They are not very conversant as they are absorbed in the book. I always acknowledge them. When I leave I pickup the SUN newspaper.

Restored shuffleboard courts re-open for open play July 24

The Shuffleboard Club will begin its Monday and Wednesday morning open play/pick-up games from 9–11 Monday, July 24. This schedule provides sufficient time for the courts to dry thoroughly and for the sealant and wax treatments to season fully after having the long-awaited restoration completed.

Club members are invited to take advantage of the time to practice as the courts will perform quite differently than they have over the last year. As several members have noted, there will be a need  to re-learn how to play the courts. The historical twists and turns have been minimized, and the speed of the courts will be altered after being sealed and waxed with new material. The other difference with the courts when play is resumed will be the use of a new material, PolyGlide, to be laid down before game days.

For more information, call or text Kay Mount at 775-527-0426.

The organizations have created a traveling trophy for bragging rights whenever the clubs play each other. In 2022, each pool club won a tournament so the series is tied, leading to heightened competitive interest.


Tournament Poker Club

The Tournament Poker Club had another great tournament on July 8. The two players with the highest hands of the day were Maryanne Conte (66669) and Katie Hamilton (AAA44). The promotional hand was won by Joyce Smith.

The final table players were Doug Wolfe, first place; Kirk Bromberg, second; Conte, third; Jeff Rolnick, fourth; and Lee Pfeifer, fifth place. With five great players there was plenty of action at the table right up until the head’s up play between Wolfe and Bromberg. In the winning hand, Wolfe went all in (KK) before the flop and was called by Bromberg. The flop cards were K, 10, 7. The turn was a Jack, and the river was a 3. That gave Wolfe the winning hand of K-K-K-7-10. 

Wolfe has lived in Leisure World for eight years and has been a member of the club for six years. This was his third final table win. He enjoys playing pickleball as well as poker here in Leisure

The club congratulates all the winners. Those who would like to play a fun and friendly game of Texas Hold ‘Em should make plans to come on one of the first three Saturdays of every month to the lobby of Clubhouse 6 at 10 a.m. for registration, with cards in the air at 10:30.

Men’s Golf League Results

Friday Golf

On July 7, 12 golfers competed at the 5,800-yard, par-70 Riverview Golf Course in Santa Ana. This course has remained in excellent condition for many years. Riverview has returned to pre-rainy season form after months of rehabilitating the course. Acres of new sod, grading of the fairways and riverbed has corrected 95% of the issues. The one par-5 that was turned into a par-3 has become a long par-5 again.

The weather was cool and initially overcast. The sun showed up mid-round and it became a lovely morning. Scores were generally below average even with great conditions and OK weather. But there were five birdies, one each by Dave LaCascia, Chris Lankford, Bill McKusky, Daniel Mahoney and Gene Vesely. Gary Stivers and Fujio Norihiro tied for
fewest putts for ‘A’ flight, and Lowell Goltra and Mahoney tied for fewest  for the ‘B’. LaCascia was closest to the pin on the par-3 second hole and Mahoney was closest on the par-3 ninth.

A flight winners: LaCascia, at 1 over 71, first place; Lankford, second: tie between Stivers and Sam Choi, third; tie between Norihiro and Clay Fischer, fourth.

B flight winners: Ron Jackson, at 1 under 69, first place; McKusky, second; tie between Bob Munn and Mahoney, third; tie between Vesely and Goltra, fourth.

Monday Golf

On July 10 at Meadowlark, 16 players attacked the 5,600 yard, par-71 course. It was initially overcast and cool but turned into a sunny warm day. With the course being in excellent condition, scores were generally good, and everyone enjoyed the weather and the round.

 A flight winners: Fisher, 66, first place; Lankford, 67 with a birdie, second; Norihiro, 68 with fewest putts, third; Stivers, 69 with two birdies plus closest to the pin on no. 16, fourth; tie between Larry Hillhouse and Sam Choi with a birdie, fifth. 

B flight winners: McKusky, 60 with a birdie, first place; tie between Goltra and Tom Ross, 71, second; Bill Zurn, 72, third; tie between Vesely (with fewest putts), Digna Vesely and Mahoney, fourth; tie between Bob Munn and new player Steve Miller, who was closest to the pin on no. 7, fifth.

The Monday and Friday Golf Leagues play at five 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, which players are not obligated to enter. Prizes are given for low net in each flight, birdies, closest to the pin on two par threes, and for the fewest number of putts in each flight. Holes-in-one and eagles (2 under par), although
infrequent, are generously rewarded.

For more information regarding the club, contact Gary Stivers at 714-313-3697 or Dave LaCascia at 801-674-5975.

The class also has a busy summer performance schedule.

Travel Diary: A Month in Scotland

by Fred and Linda Fenton

LW contributors

Having spent only a few days on previous trips to Scotland, we decided on a month-long visit this June to see and experience as much of the land and people as possible. It became a truly great adventure. 

We travelled by train. Neither Linda nor I fancied “driving on the other side of the road,” especially the narrow, often single-lane roadways common in Scotland. That decision was key to our enjoyment of the beautiful Scottish countryside. Instead of concentrating on traffic and negotiating turnarounds, we enjoyed seeing the lush, green countryside through panoramic passenger car windows.

Another key decision was to stay several days each place we visited. This kept us rested and gave more opportunity to spend time seeing things and visiting with the Scottish people. They proved to be unusually warm and friendly, asking questions about us and sharing easily about themselves. We were surprised by their knowledge and concern about politics in the U.S. They expressed shock and dismay over daily shootings in America. Scotland has strict gun laws. We felt safe at all times and in all places while we were there.

One big surprise was the weather. Based on our previous trips, we took warm, winter clothing. What we found was the fairest month of June in Scotland since 1940. Days were sunny and bright, with infrequent showers only during the last few days of the month.

Another surprise was the food. We had come to expect disappointing meals on previous trips to Great Britain. This time was different. Every meal, in restaurants, coffee shops, sidewalk cafes, and pubs was excellent. 

At coastal towns we were served fish caught the same day. At every place we enjoyed an unhurried atmosphere that added to the pleasure of dining.

One of the most attractive features of our trip was this slower pace of life. We rarely experienced being rushed or pressured. People had time to chat and seemed eager to do so. It was possible for us to enjoy moments of inspiration without being hurried on to the next thing. 

Here are a few of the events we are likely to remember whenever we think of Scotland:

• Dumfries House, Cumnock Ayershire: A stately country home, full of priceless 18th-century Chippendale furniture beautifully preserved in its original placement throughout the house.

• Sunday Choral Eucharist at St. Mary’s Scottish Episcopal cathedral in Glasgow: A service with beautiful music and a fine sermon by a female priest. 

• The Abbey Church on the Isle of Iona: Birthplace of Scottish Christianity.

• Majestic view of top of the Craig at Staffin on the Isle of Skye.

• The 1881 footbridge over the River Ness in Inverness: Inverness, in the Scottish highlands, was our favorite place on this trip.

• The Scottish Parliament in session: Marked by thoughtful, well-reasoned political debate.

And so many more memories of a month in Scotland, one of the very special places on this earth.

Community Karaoke

The audience enjoyed a newcomer Bruce Lee singing “La Vie En Rose.” Brian Tivnan delivered a fine “My Funny Valentine.” Dorothy Ferrington changed the pace with a favorite gospel tune. The audience liked the upbeat songs done by Nina Todorov, Barbie May, Erika Greenwood, Ray Greierman and Edward Jablonski.

The club’s Wednesday night parties are fast-paced with over 30 performers anxious to regale the audience with their selections. Some songs bring back memories; others make people tap their feet and want to sing along.

seniors for peace

Talking trash in Leisure World

by Nancy Goldstein 

LW contributor

On July 6, the Seniors for Peace Club presented a program on composting from Nancy Cuyon, a representative from Athens Waste Management. Cuyon titled her presentation “Talking Trash.” The meeting room was filled to capacity with over 50 people. Cuyon was immediately confronted with hands up for questions, which continued for almost two hours. 

It was apparent that those attending wanted to participate in composting but felt that the information they had been provided was lacking and welcomed the opportunity to find out more. 

Most of the queries were about what was considered “compostable” and what kind of bags are allowed. There was good news with the latter question: The speaker advised that most grocery-store fruit and vegetable bags are compostable and can be dumped into the bins, and they are free, thus eliminating the necessity to purchase special bags. 

Many residents commented on the unpleasent look and smell of the compost containers, which Cuyonr said could be replaced if the container’s condition became really bad.

 The composted waste is trucked to the OC Waste Management facility where it goes through a filtering process to get rid of unwanted or non-compostable elements.Then “Mother Nature” takes care of the process of decomposing after which it is again filtered and made available as compost to protect and nourish plants, trees and the like. Composting helps avoid clogging landfills, which contributes to methane gases that are hazardous to the planet. 

The club chose to highlight this topic because it believes that as the earth warms, all people are charged with the responsibility to do their part to take care of mother Earth for their own sakes as well as generations to come.

LW Democratic Club

by Mary Larson

LW contributor 

LW Democratic Club members are looking forward to an in-person discussion with Joanna Weiss, who is a candidate for election to the House of Representatives. All Leisure World Democrats are invited to attend the meeting on Wednesday, July 26, in Clubhouse 3, Room 9, at 1 p.m. Members can also join the meeting via Zoom by email ing sblwdemocraticclub@gmail.com for the login information. 

Weiss is one of the three Democratic candidates running in the 2024 Primary to replace Rep. Katie Porter in Congress.  She is the founder and past president of Women for American Values and Ethics (WAVE).  She is also an award-winning litigator and community organizer.

Weiss has received the backing of community leaders such as OC Supervisor, Katrina Foley, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez and former Rep. Harley Rouda. She also has the backing of EMILY’s List, a national organization dedicated to electing pro-choice women to office.

U.S. Rep. Katie Porter, who  is running to succeed Dianne Feinstein in the U.S. Senate, will join the club’s August meeting via Zoom. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, another Democratic contender for this position, is tentatively scheduled as the speaker for the club’s Sept. 27 meeting.

Another candidate running for the Senate, Adam Schiff, joined club members by Zoom in June.  He began his half-hour presentation with a review of what he had been able to accomplish, first as a member of the California legislature and later as a member of the House of Representatives.  

Schiff also shared with attendees why he has been spending a substantial amount of time talking with potential voters in regions of the state such as the one currently represented in Congress by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy.  He listed compelling reasons as to the importance of reaching voters located outside of densely populated areas in Northern and Southern California in order to win in 2024.

Arguing that California needs a new type of representation in the nation’s captial, Silicon Valley executive Lexi Reese has announced that she is also running to succeed Feinstein in the Senate.


The Democratic Club’s information and registration booth will be open again on Tuesday, Aug. 1st from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Clubhouse 6 parking lot. Democrats and potential supporters are invited to stop by the booth to get more information about the club or to register to vote.

Tinoco has a  master’s in social work and has worked in nonprofits providing resources for almost 10 years.

Humanist Association

The LW Humanist Association will meet on Sunday, Aug. 6, in Clubhouse 3, Room 1, starting at 10:20 a.m. The guest speaker will be Bobbie Hamfeldt, who will give a presentation on organ, eye and tissue donation.

Shortly after retiring in 2010, Hamfeldt’s only child was killed in a tragic accident. Her grief journey has led her to take new paths in life to honor her son Erik and continue causes that were important to him. In 2017, she trained to become a OneLegacy Ambassador, so she can help to spread the important message of organ donation, a cause that is very important to her.

Hamfeldt’s presentation will begin with an overview of donation, its impact on others and why it’s an important act to consider.  She will also go over ways that people can participate in donation as a living donor and/or as a deceased donor. There are many myths that have been passed around regarding organ and tissue donation, and Hamfeldt will spend some time addressing these fallacies. After the presentation, there will be time for questions, and people will be able to register to be a donor if they choose.

LWers learn how to age successfully in the comfort of their home with Alzheimer’s OC

Aging healthy and enjoying life go hand in hand with the help of a few tips when living alone. On July 10, over 60 residents gathered in Clubhouse 3, Room 2 to learn more about aging successfully alone. Presented by the Memory Support Team and the Alzheimer’s OC social worker Tracy Bell, the following are 11 tips that Bell discussed in depth in an hour-long presentation. 

Medical ID bracelet

The medical ID bracelet can include current medications, major medical diagnoses, allergies, implanted devices and an emergency contact. They can be found in pharmacies and online (Amazon; MedicAlert).

Refrigerator door signs

The refrigerator door sign is a low tech source of information that can be easily accessed by emergency personnel, neighbors or family members. They can include emergency contacts, healthcare provider’s contact information, instructions for pets in emergencies, poison control phone number: 1-800-222-1222, Abrazar non-medical transportation phone number: 714-893-3581, and the phone numbers for Meals on Wheels OC: 714-220-0224 and Meals on Wheels LB: 562-439-5000, ext. 1.

Emergency healthcare record

The emergency healthcare form lists the instructions in case of an emergency health visit and can include family names and phone numbers and instructions for pets’ care, and should be kept in a handy place.

Get personal records in order.

Personal records should be kept in one place such as a locked safe or cabinet. Exampler: insurance policies, updated will and estate plans, record of all accounts and their beneficiaries, funeral instructions, and important passwords list.

Duplicate keys

Duplicate keys can be used in an emergency to enter a locked unit to avoid breaking down a door and incurring expensive repairs.

Create a “signal” with a neighbor

Neighbors can alert each other through mutually created signs for a welfare check such as porch lights (on/off), curtains (open/closed), daily phone check-ins or texts and window signs. 

Medical response systems

A medical response system can come in the form of a necklace, key chain, a pocket or a voice-activated device. The devices can be priced between $25-45 a month and provide peace of mind to family members and friends. 

Durable power of attorney

People can establish their end-of-life wishes by filling out the Five Wishes form that is available at www.fivewishes.org/for-myself/ free of charge. A copy of this form needs to go to a primary care provider and an emergency contact.

Make your home fall safe

Removing tripping hazards, installing grab bars in a bathroom, avoiding step ladders, utilizing better lighting, removing clutter throughout the home and making safety modifications to a bathroom can reduce falls and associated injuries. 

Annual mind check

Memory screenings are a wellness tool that help identify possible changes in cognition and thinking in a “first-step” approach. This wellness program creates a baseline for people and helps identify those at risk for cognitive impairment.

Don’t try to do everything yourself

It’s okay to need assistance from time to time even when living alone. People can contact the LW Member Resources Liaison Robann Arshat at 562-431-6586, ext. 317, to get connected with the resources and services available and get a home safety assessment. 


Health Tip

As people age, they naturally lose muscle mass, so it’s important to strength train to stay strong. If there’s only time for one exercise, do a set set of squats, experts say. Squats strengthen all of the muscle groups in legs, including the calves, quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes, as well as muscles in the lower back and core. Those muscles provide the foundation for most activities of daily living, such as climbing a set of stairs and simply standing up from a chair.

Food Distribution is Today


Free food is available in Leisure World to eligible residents who are 60 years or older through Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAPOC), which has a monthly distribution site by Clubhouse 4. The next food distribution is today, July 20.

Distributions are on the third Thursday of the month.

The pick-up process has changed. Rather than driving up to the food truck, people should park, check in and retrieve their box of food from the Art Room in Clubhouse 4.

Every third Thursday from 9-11 a.m., qualified people receive 32 pounds of food, including cereal, juice, peanut butter, milk, canned  vegetables, fruit, soup and cheese. Qualified residents will receive their food the same day.  

Eligible seniors must live in Leisure World, be at least 60 years of age and meet income guidelines as follows: up to $1,473 a month for one person; $1,984 for a two-person household; and $2,495 for a three-person household. 

To sign up, bring a photo ID and proof of income (Social Security/SSI statement, letter or bank statement or paycheck stub). People who are unable to apply themselves or pick up the food may send a proxy to act on their behalf with appropriate ID. 

For more information, contact Roberta Arshat in GRF Member Resources at 562-431-6586, ext. 317, or robertaa@lwsb.com.

The Leisure Leggers, a running and walking club in Leisure World for more than 20 years, meets every Monday at Clubhouse 6 at 8 a.m. for a brisk trot around the neighborhood, followed by coffee and camaraderie. Dues are 99 cents per year.
