Cypress Seniors Enjoy Annual Holiday Party

The Cypress Senior Center held their annual Holiday Celebration on Friday, December 18th. The staff at the Cypress Senior Center and volunteers from the community provided a festive atmosphere with many beautiful decorations. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus were on hand for photos opportunities.

About 200 Cypress area residents were in attendance. Teena Tomlinson and Adrianna Hyta from the Cypress Recreation Department organized the party. Holiday entertainment was provided by vocalist Tony Odell Rogers.

Tony sang many traditional Christmas carols as well as some Dean Martin favorites and music from the 50’s. A large group of volunteers, staff and seniors entertained the crowd by dancing to the tune “My Girl.” Participants received candy canes from Santa and gifts from the Senior Center.

Event sponsors included the Alamitos West Health Care Center and Katella Senior Living Community. The Senior Center staff was assisted by teams of volunteers from Cypress Church and the Cypress College Psychology Club.

The kitchen crew and volunteers prepared and served a delicious meal that included entrée, fruit, beverages and dessert. The Cypress Senior Center is located at 9031 Grindlay just south of Lincoln. The Center provides a wide range of services and activities for local residents. Information is available at (714) 229-2005.
