Better With Age 

Apply for one of nine seats on Temple City’s first-ever Committee on Aging.

TEMPLE CITY, CA (Sept. 5, 2018)—Temple City’s City Council is now recruiting representatives to fill nine vacant seats on the City’s newly formed Committee on Aging. Members will support the City Council and a variety of community stakeholders as they work toward implementing the 10-year Senior Master Plan.

Joining the committee is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a forward-thinking initiative that will have lasting effects on Temple City residents of all ages. As a working group, the committee will conceptualize and institute creative ways to bring the Senior Master Plan’s 24 expert-approved recommendations to life.

Early challenges to be tackled by the committee include building awareness of existing senior-focused services and programs, recruiting volunteers for senior-related causes and developing a list of recommendations for new social opportunities to connect seniors with each other. In a related vein, the committee will also assist with assessing funding opportunities—including ones that incorporate new community partners—to help underwrite senior-centered services and programs.

Committee members serve two-year terms and meet on a quarterly basis, with terms commencing July 1, 2019. Anyone who has a vested interest in improving services and programs for Temple City’s senior population is invited to apply for one of the vacant seats. Applications are due Oct. 31, 5 p.m. and can be obtained at templecity.us or Live Oak Park Community Center.
