SILVER LAKE– This past Wednesday, December 20th (2006) Donna and I accepted an invitation to attend the Silver Lake Seniors‘Winter Solstice Gourmet Potluck’ held annually at Bea Gold’s ‘Elevator House’ on Micheltorena Street. While Donna and I are officially members of the club (at $10 per year), it’s a ‘no brainer’ to lend our support. The payout for joining, however, is absurdly beneficial, as we are beginning to find out.
Bea’s home, the ‘Elevator House’ (you can get their by either a staircase or an elevator), was packed with people; quite a few that we know well, but also a lot of new faces (at least to us). We were treated to a multitude of interesting and tasty dishes, all for the small expense of preparing our own dish. (This group needs to put out a cookbook!)
Bea Gold is an amazing hostess! Her involvement with the neighborhood on many levels (See article in ‘Who’s Who in Silver Lake’)is commendable and inspiring. She has learned the joy of giving and does it in such a gracious way.
If you have passed or are approaching the mid-century mark (that’s 50+), and are looking for interesting things to do, the Silver Lake Seniors Club might be for you. The group has a full, weekly schedule embracing a wide variety of activites, including tai chi training, yoga instruction, line dancing, creative writing classes, painting classes, field trips and more. To learn more, please contact Stephanie Vendig, President (323) 667-3043 or by e-mail.
