Air conditioned facilities provide heat relief for seniors
Triple-digit temperatures are hitting Southern California early this year. Older residents can feel more distress from heat and humidity and often have fewer options for beating the heat. The City of Lakewood wants to remind seniors that the air-conditioned Weingart Senior Center is a comfortable oasis, especially during the hottest time of the day--from noon to 4:00 p.m.

Seniors can use the free DASH Transit service as transportation to Weingart if they can't drive or don't have a ride. For more information on DASH call 562-924-0149.
