Golden Lakes Village


Society of the Four Arts Museum & Sculpture Garden 

Photos Compliments of Love in Action

One of the Love in Action carpooling trips was to the Four Arts museum and sculpture garden in Palm Beach.

Author Robert L. Forbes did a poetry reading, sharing excerpts from his well-known children’s books (such as "Beastly Feasts!" and "Beast Friends Forever!"). The LIA grandparent group took some of their "adopted" family to enjoy the occasion. After the reading Mr. Forbes signed books for the children and the children enjoyed a poet’s parfait treat. LIA kids also got to walk along the Intracoastal Waterway and stand in awe of the giant tree by the Flagler Museum.

Arts & Crafts and 

Volunteer Grandparents

Working together: Amelia Arango helps Gail Rosenfeld learn to crochet. The Golden Lakes knitting/crocheting club was started by Spanish-speaking friends in Golden Lakes. They offer their expertise and friendship to all who are interested. Both women in this photograph have limited manual dexterity due to health issues. Says Gail, "I not only have mastered the basic stitch already but have enjoyed practicing my Spanish-Speaking skills!" Gail is a Love in Action officer in charge of Projects; she got the first project (a monthly food drive) started at the first Love in Action gathering in January.

Artist Tom Melican of Love in Action helps Jessica Vazquez, grandchild of a Golden Lakes resident during spring break.

Tom Melican and Jessica Vazquez made this killer painting together.

Love of a Grandparent: Many families do not have that unconditional grandparent love enriching their lives. So, Love in Action has now adopted three families, and volunteer grandparents from Golden Lakes and beyond are having a blast filling in that gap. Here, Ruth and Hugo Tschudin enjoy their family: teenagers Edwin and Daily and their mom, Luisa. Ruth is president of Love in Action and Hugo is an officer in charge of promotions and public relations.

Honoring Veterans

(L-r) Bill Jackowski and Toni Paige. Bill, who served in Guam during the Vietnam War, and other Love in Action people, have signed and will be taking artist Toni’s card to Ed Rosenwasser, a Golden Lakes friend and decorated WWII veteran now residing at the VA medical Center. The American flag in the background, along with the seals of the various armed services, is on display in the breezeway of Club A, thanks to the efforts of village veterans Bill Wilder, Peter King and Don Kilmartin

During Love in Action’s "Honoring our Veterans" gathering last month, Lenore Stein told how her husband, three brothers and two grandchildren served, or are now serving in the US armed forces. In the photo above Lenore holds pictures of her husband, Jerry, a member of the elite WWII "Flying Tigers" serving in China, Burma, India, Australia and the South Pacific, and her grandson Jeremy, now in the US Navy.

It’s fun ... inspiring ... life-enriching ... powerful! It can be challenging at times, but that’s when it promotes the most growth and can be most rewarding.

What is it? Love in Action! A mindset (and a heart-set) that produces ideas and actions to counteract the constant flow of negative news reported by the media, the problems we see all around us that sadden and upset us, and the anxiety-laden feelings that put us in a funk and make us cynical.

Instead of giving in to fretting, complaining, and moping around, we respond to the Love in Action call to use our time and talents to conjure up as much good as we can. It’s a noble love we’re nurturing — the kind that is patient, understanding, and forgiving ... that risks rejection, doesn’t care who gets the credit, and seeks good for all involved.

The Love in Action! (LIA) movement started with a group of us here at Golden Lakes Village, a West Palm 55+ community with hundreds of modest villas and condos. In just a few short months, we have added joy to many lives, especially our own (because of the great people we’ve met and the differences we’ve made). Together, and individually, we strive to see and bring out the best in ourselves and others as we apply unselfish, uplifting approaches to every situation and person we encounter.

Our website www.GLLoveinAction.com explains what we’re all about. It also encourages those who visit the site to join in by doing as much good as they can no matter where they are or what their circumstances might be — because even the smallest kindnesses can make a world of difference. We in our Golden Lakes group are presently pursuing the following goals:

• to enjoy and encourage each other,

• to support Golden Lakes activities, and

• to do projects that put others first.

We have already accomplished much. We have monthly "gatherings" (which are warmer and friendlier than "meetings") in which we review recent and ongoing projects, and think up new ideas. No idea is too small, or too large, to be worth exploring. We also have monthly newsletters, all of which can be accessed via our website. They are filled with photos of past activities and news about upcoming ones.

Thus far we have carpooled to the WPB Library, thrift shops, restaurants, events, and places of interest outside the village. We also brought people together for village activities, and offered residents our own creative activities (like card- and bracelet-making workshops led by talented people among us).

Ongoing projects now include collecting food and clothing for those in need, preparing special-occasion gift baskets for residents, doing fun things with families in need of grandparent-like love, and making "goody bags" for the homeless. We are also planning projects to help area veterans.

"Whaddaya say?" (Spoken as only a true Jersey gal can!) Care to join forces with us in purpose and attitude? Together, as individuals and/or as an ever-changing pack o’ pals, let’s make a world of difference. 

E-mail us at info@GLLoveinAction.com with your questions, ideas, and vignettes of what you are doing (or thinking of doing) as you step out into this amazing adventure we call Love in Action!

This past week I was invited to a holiday party, where I met some very interesting and new people along with some familiar faces. I was invited to a beautiful home and spent enjoyable hours at this festive occasion.

My host and hostess for this elegant and yet understated event, were Michael and Fiona Scharf.
