Meet the Unsung Hero of LOACC

Art Henderson volunteers in many capacities at LOACC, library and his church

SUBMITTED PHOTO  - Art Henderson is an extremely valuable volunteer about town, particularly at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.

The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center offers a wide range of services and support for the community, none of which would be possible without our dedicated volunteers.

Recently, one of our very versatile volunteers, Art Henderson, was honored as a Lake Oswego Unsung Hero. Art does it all; he drives the shuttle, runs a special investment group, is on the Meals and Wheels board and coordinates speakers and presenters for the Learning and Technology Group he leads. Add to that his activities at the library and Our Lady of the Lake Church and its clear there is nothing this man can’t do.

For those who have not attended a Learning and Technology Group presentation, I invite you to join us from 9:30-11 a.m. Mondays.

Art invests many hours in finding spectacular speakers on a wide range of topics. For example, last fall he recruited a speaker who talked about drones and demonstrated how to use them.

Once a month, Art hosts a computer question-and-answer session, where you bring your questions about computers or technology and the answers are discussed. The next Q & A is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 25. The following week, Feb. 1, Art has invited Lake Oswego City Manager Scott Lazenby to share his recommendations to the Lake Oswego City Council regarding the development of broadband Wi-Fi.

The following week on Monday, Feb. 8 Sherry Johnston is going to talk about the Japanese Gardens. Art does an excellent job of promoting the upcoming speakers to those on his email list. If you are interested in being on the list to receive the communications, call the ACC. Just let us know.

Art is a wonderful volunteer, very deserving of the Unsung Hero Award.

We are extremely lucky he shares his versatile talents with the ACC.

The lunch menu this week features beef broccoli on Friday, Jan. 22; chicken Mediterranean stew on Monday, Jan. 25; and beef lasagna on Wednesday, Jan. 27. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.

The LOACC is located at 505 G Ave., Lake Oswego, 97034.
