SOUTH WHITTIER – Amelia Mayberry Park has had a senior center since the early 1990s. But unlike other communities, it never had a senior citizen club – until just recently. Three months ago, Sandra Fellerman and several others decided to organize one. But unlike previous attempts that failed, they succeeded. On Friday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina installed Fellerman as the Mayberry Park senior club’s new president and installed four others as officers, including Eva Olmos, vice president, Geneva Thoman, second vice president, Ana Rivero, secretary, and Maria Meza, treasurer. Along with Molina, Russ Guiney, director of the county Department of Parks and Recreation, Kirk Kane, executive director of the Southeast Area Social Services Funding Authority, and Capt. Ralph Webb of the sheriff’s Norwalk Station attended the installation. The club will have two roles, Fellerman said. It will provide additional activities to those already at the center, such as dances and trips, and it will provide a voice for seniors, because the officers will be able to speak up for seniors to the county, she said. Molina said she is proud of the new club. “It is important to treat our seniors with respect and dignity, and through this club we will be able to ensure their recreational needs are met,” the supervisor said. email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In the past, seniors would come to the senior center for the lunch program sponsored by the Southeast Area Social Services Funding Authority. But that’s about all they would do, said Manny Guerrero, president of the county’s Commission on Aging. “They just wanted to drop in, eat and go,” Ramirez said. The installation of officers for the new seniors club attracted a lot of official interest.
