Parks and Recreation Senior Services Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Press Contact: Sue Horst, Supervisor, Daly City Senior Services (650) 991-8014

Daly City - Doelger Senior Center and Daly City Parks and Recreation Senior Services will commemorate its 25th anniversary beginning September 16, continuing through October 2, 2005. A variety of events will celebrate the accomplishments and special milestones of the past 25 years.

The two-week celebration will commence on September 16 with a Silver Jubilee reception at Café Doelger and following, a dinner dance at the Olympic Club sponsored by the Supporters of Doelger Seniors, Inc. and the City of Daly City. This event will be a gathering of Daly City community and civic leaders, senior center members, senior services staff, and supporting professionals and businesses, many of whom have watched Daly City Senior Services and Doelger Senior Center flower from its inception in 1980 to a recognized organization bringing recreational, educational, and social service programs to diverse senior communities throughout Daly City. The event will honor Edward M. King, Alfred O. Belotz, and William G. Crocker - the founding members of the Supporters of Doelger Senior Center, Inc. board of directors.

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception at the Doelger Senior Center from 5:15 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. After mingling over an array of hors d’oeuvres prepared by the Doelger Senior Café volunteers, the Jubilee guests will be shuttled to the Olympic Club via limousine. There they will enjoy a delicious three-course meal and dance the night away.

Another highlight of the evening will be a live auction. The auction will feature items ranging from an Olympic Club golf foursome to a dinner for eight at a Daly City Fire Station.

During the two weeks following the Jubilee, the celebration will continue at the Daly City Senior Services with numerous activities and festivities. Many of the activities and events will celebrate the multicultururalism and progression of Daly City Senior Services.

The two-week celebration will end with the annual community–wide Fall Festival and Pancake Breakfast on October 2, 2005, at Doelger Senior Center hosted by The Supporters of Doelger Senior Center, Inc. and the City of Daly City. The Center will be decked out in silver, with live music and dancing throughout the day, class demonstrations, a raffle, a silver fashion show, poetry readings, as well as food and arts & craft booths.

“This year marks a tremendous milestone for Daly City Senior Services and Doelger Senior Center,” said Mayor Carol L. Klatt. “We hope people will come and experience the achievements of Daly City Senior Services and Doelger Senior Center,” she added.

Daly City Senior Services invites all adults 50+ to join in its activities. The 25th Anniversary celebration and all its festivities are open to the public.
