Ms. Soledad Tolentino from Lima, Peru, visited the Fairfax Lions Club dinner meeting on Oct 21, 2014. Soledad was accompanied by her son-in-law Jose Rojas, of Fairfax. Lion Rodney Neeley, who is fluent in Spanish, translated the evening’s events for Soledad.

Soledad presented the Fairfax Lions five gifts: a scarf embroidered with the Lions crest and her home club “Club de Leones, Papa Juan XXIII;” a pin issued by the senior Lion in Peru Irene Chavez Gil; a flower encased in recycled glass; 2 collector coins from Peru; and a collector plate from Cuzco, Peru.

Thank you for visiting, Soledad!  It is a pleasure to meet Lions across the world who are committed to community service!   Soledad presents gifts

The county is preparing for the “age wave” – the increasing portion of elderly in the county’s population. The action plan addresses various actions in the categories of services, safety and health, community engagement, transportation, and housing – to support that growing elderly population. For example, the county supports expanding Project Lifesaver – which offers technology and processes to assist those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive conditions in case they wander from their residence or caregiver.
