The Leisure World Sunshine Club began classes to get the best out of living in Leisure World by getting information from weekly GRF newspaper. Many residents read the community information resource and miss many beneficial news items.
As Leisure World residents, organizers consider the “GR News” as a treasure of information on activities, various events, beneficial classes and opportunity to learn about different cultures that enhances living here. The News also provides opportunities to learn about GRF rules and regulations. The class uses the weekly GRF News as text book and goes over news, general columns, the minutes of monthly mutual meetings, the minutes of monthly Board of Directors meetings, etc. No Membership dues, everyone in L.W are welcome to join.
The Sunshine Club of SBLW was established and designed to help Korean- Americans and all ethnic groups to get along in this wonderful community and to have better communication with neighbors. The Sunshine Club is happy to be part of a liaison when new residents have issues with their Mutual or GRF due to lack of information or regulations. English is spoken in class.
