Flint Senior Praises Old Age

"Operation 'Israel," an eve-

in visiting Israel, will be held ship Club, wrote article to
the Flint Jewish Community
Council praising old age as a
"rich reward" and not a per-
iod of "sitting and waiting
for the Angel of Death" as
many view it.
His letter stated in part:
In our United States of
America, whose aim is to
promote the life and welfare
of human beings, the aged
occupy a position of honor
and respect. This is not only
because all life, regradless
of age, is sacred but because
the elderly are thought of as
those who have a definite
contribution to make to so-
This is clearly and definite-

Hosted by Edward Powers, tradition. Here they are re-
Leo Seide and Jack Stanzier, garded as those who, because
this parlor meeting will in- of their years of experience,
clude special slides of Israel have acquired resources of
and discussions with those wisdom and character. Old
who have been to Israel re- age is a rich reward, the har-
vest of the good life.

It is essential that every-
one, while still in his prime,
should become aware and
work toward the enrichments
available for a comfortable
interesting and serviceable
old age. Social Security has
lessened the burden of finan-
cial support and cleared the
way for time and appreciation
of the more meaningful
Medical car programs for
the aging, councils, club
rooms, volunteer programs,
are all tools to help us "old-
sters" make our later years
as meaningful as possible.
_ For those of us who have
not made a rich preparation
for our old age, it is not too
late. There are opportunities
on hand for all of us, sick or
well to help ourselves and
help each other. A program
of friendly visiting among
ourselves would serve every-
one participating.

What saddens the wise man
gladdens a fool.
