The Pasadena Village, a non-profit organization serving older adults in the San Gabriel Valley, invites people of all ages to “Stay Independent, Stay Active, and Stay Connected with the Pasadena Village” at a special community meeting at the Hastings Branch Library on Wednesday, January 22 from 3:30- 4:30 PM.
The purpose of the meeting is to ask community members what they envision their lives being like as they grow older. Taking a careful look at expectations for the future is the first step toward realizing a person’s goals, and the Pasadena Village is helping individuals along that journey.
Part of a nation-wide movement of “Villages,” The Pasadena Village is a caring community of older adults who are committed to helping one another lead fulfilling lives. The Village provides social opportunities and services that give Pasadena area residents the practical resources and confidence they need to live safely and comfortably as they age. Members and volunteers form meaningful connections with one another as they work together to achieve members’ goals and contribute to a vibrant community.
The Pasadena Village invites the community to learn how they can become involved in the work the Village is doing to support older adults in the area. Executive Director Sue Kujawa and members of the organization will share how the organization has grown from its grassroots beginnings and explain the important role that volunteers play in keeping Village members active and healthy. Current members and volunteers will be on hand to share their stories, and attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share their own plans for a full life. Light refreshments will be served.
The Hastings Branch Library is located at 3325 E. Orange Grove Blvd. RSVPs are not required, but interested persons are encouraged to call the Pasadena Village (626-765-6037) with any questions about the meeting. As this program is not sponsored by the Pasadena Public Library, guests are asked to refrain from contacting the library with inquiries.
