Golden Agers Move To Lakewood Legion

LAKEWOOD – Lakewood American Legion Post 1286 continues to expand by reaching out to local organizations and projects in the surrounding communities.

The Lakewood-Busti Golden Agers will begin holding monthly meetings at the legion, which offers rooms for larger functions, on-site parking for up to 70 Golden Agers and wheelchair accessibility. The legion, located at 174 Chautauqua Ave. in Lakewood, also has a large covered picnic area for the organization’s events.

The Golden Agers, a community-oriented organization for locals over the age of 55, started meeting in 1968.

The organization, which previously met at the Lakewood Recreation Center, looks forward to growing its membership and expanding its community-based projects.

Golden Agers meet the third Tuesday of each month, at 1:30 p.m. For more information regarding the organization or becoming a member, contact Cecile Wilson, president, at 483-0101.

Peter Ochocki, Post 1286 commander, encourages other community groups looking for a meeting location to contact the post at 763-1286.
