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.

For more information, please contact Steve Lawson at (626) 285-2171, ext. 4530.
