This is our special opportunity to make them feel appreciated, and a way to bring the community closer,” said Paz.
The annual event wouldn’t be possible without the support and contributions of local businesses and individuals who kindly donated items. The San Pedro Lions Club expresses thanks to all those that made the Senior citizen’s party a success!
