Friendly Warren Guest loves conversation

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - New member Warren Guest brings many interests and talents to the WLACC

Warren Guest is a new member at the West Linn Adult Community Center, but he’s become involved in so many activities so fast that it seems like he’s been a member for years.

Warren worked as a professional diesel mechanic for most of the 19 years he’s lived in West Linn. So when he retired last August, he was looking for some activities to fill his time and decided to give the WLACC a try.

First he tried painting with the open studio painting group that meets on Fridays. Then he found his way into the pinochle group that plays several times each week.

He’s since become a regular at the Tuesday Honoring Our Memories writing group and in the acting/drama group.

On occasion, Warren will spontaneously sit at our piano and treat those nearby to a musical talent that was cultivated by his musical family during his youth. Warren’s older sister taught him to play “Heart and Soul” with her on the piano after which he says, “I just found middle C and taught myself the rest.”

Warren plays guitar and keyboard and his wife sings. They used to play at retirement homes and events round town.

When asked what his secret is for fitting in at the WLACC so quickly, Warren says, “I’m not afraid to talk to people. I come from conversationalists.” And we are pleased that a guy as gregarious as Warren has joined our membership.

Here are the upcoming week’s activities. West Linn Adult Community Center is located at 1180 Rosemont Road. Call the WLACC at 503-557-4704 for specific times and possible fees. Also, all lunches listed below are subject to change, but only for the better.
