Wow! What a community we live in and what a way to end 2012. Once again, this year the LOEL Center's Senior Wish Christmas tree received overwhelming support from our community (from Girl Scout Troop 2028 and many community individuals and families to seniors themselves).

Seniors made a wish for Christmas and hung it on the tree. There were wishes for new jackets, new robes and slippers, groceries or just a dinner out, and even help with their utility bills and Dial-A-Ride passes. You, this community, filled those wishes.

It was the community that filled more than 50 senior wishes! Each and every one of you knows who you are, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make our seniors feel the true "Christmas spirit." Sometimes seniors are known as the Forgotten Generation. Well, this year, they weren't forgotten!

A special thank-you to the best Santa and his elf team — Dennis Calton, Marj, Liz and Christine — who handed out each special gift. On behalf of the LOEL seniors, staff and board of directors, thank you, Lodi community! We wish you and yours all the best in 2013, and look forward to another wonderful year.

Tracy L. Williams

President and CEO

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
