The event got its start in 2012 during the city's centennial year celebration and has continued ever since through the support of SAC, the Mayor's Council, City Council member David Lesser, and others, said Jan Buike, Older Adult Programs Supervisor.
"It's an opportunity for all ages to share ideas on living in Manhattan Beach and how working together can result in positive changes," said Jan.
The Mayor's Youth Council is a group that brings together high school students and community leaders to introduce students to local issues and civic involvement. The Senior Advisory Committee works in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department’s Older Adults Program to make recommendations regarding the delivery of senior programs, activities and policies.
