General Information
A Little About The Senior Citizens Advisory Board Members:
Sue Heinritz "I am nearing the end of my term on the Advisory Board. It has been
an energizing experience to be involved in city government, policy and planning for the
Center, and helping staff carry out programs. My education in occupational therapy and
work experienced enhanced my ability to contribute."
Maureen Denig "It has been my pleasure to serve since June, 2011. My husband and I
moved to Longmont in 2008. When I became "old enough", I participated in a snowshoe
event. It was a great experience to leave my office desk, where I work as a travel agent,
to experience the outdoors with a friendly group of people and experienced leaders.
Through my work on the Board, I have come to appreciate all that the Senior Center has to
offer. Working with the board members and the great staff of the Senior Center has been
very rewarding and enlightening."
Brenda Ourada "This is my third year on the Board. The citizens of Longmont can be
very proud of the services and programs offered by the Longmont Senior Center. After
being laid off from IBM, I got a master's degree in gerontology during which I interned at
the Longmont Senior Center with Veronica Garcia, Resource Specialist. I would encourage
any citizen to participate on an advisory board."
Mary Sean OHalloran "I am in my second year serving on the Board. I have learned
so much about the resources at this fabulous community resource, about Longmont city
government, and about area agencies. I am on the faculty at UNC. My work on the board
has enhanced my awareness about older adults and this has, in turn, contributed to my
work as a professor of graduate psychology and as a mental health provider. "
Emily Sciortino "This is my second year on the Board and I have learned a lot about
Longmont. I have been impressed with the inter-action Longmont has with its citizens
when making decisions for the city. After college I worked as a chemist in Chicago, then
stayed at home raised five children. I later returned to work as a secretary. When I retired,
I moved to Longmont to be near my son and his daughters."
Arlene Poplewko "I came to Longmont from New York in 1965 and was a stay home
mom until my youngest turned 10. Then I worked for various companies and agencies and
later served as a volunteer Victim Assistance Advocate and for the Salvation Army. I have
served several terms on the Senior Citizens Advisory Board. It has been a great experience
being part of the Senior Center and watching it grow. The Center offers much to our senior
population and the best thing is aging well in our city."
Juana Mendoza "This my first year on the board. It has been a nice experience to be a
member of this board. I'm very involved with my church family whom mostly are seniors. I
have the privilege to learn and understand the needs of our older adults."
