24,000 Disposable Face Masks to the Community, Donated by Global Specialty Services
The Golden Age Foundation has received another generous donation of disposable face masks from Global Specialty Services. Global Specialty Services, located in Dallas, is a rapid-response contractor specializing in environmental response & disaster recovery assisting all levels of government.
This brings the total number of 3 PLY Disposable Face Masks donated by Global Specialty Services to 24,000. The Foundation has continued to work with the Golden Rain Foundation to distribute these masks to those shareholders who may have been unable to obtain masks as well as those who work behind the scene in Leisure World, providing much needed services to our community.
With this additional donation we have been able to provide masks to our club house custodial staff and their families as well as our landscaping companies and gardeners.
We are grateful we can help to insure the safety of our community by providing masks to all those who work here.
The Golden Age Foundation extends our deep gratitude to Mr. Larry Dunn, CEO of Global Specialty Services who generously donated these masks and Mr. Michael Rettig who facilitated the donation.

Ellen Larsen Appreciates Golden Age Foundation Community Services
Carl and Ellen Larsen retired and moved to LW in 1989. Almost from the beginning, both were either on the GRF, Mutual boards or both. Ellen served on the GRF board for 12 years off and on. The same for Carl who served on Mutual 14 board for 12 years, and at one time was president. For first hand information about the flood of 1995, talk to Ellen. She served on GRF board during that devastating event.
Ellen has also been a volunteer for the Golden Age Foundation. She was involved with the hospitality program when it started in Clubhouse 3 over 20 years ago. She has continued to be a volunteer off and on ever since. Ellen has always been very generous toward the Golden Age Foundation monetarily and through her volunteer work. When her husband of 58 years passed away in 2014, Ellen purchased a bus bench with shelter in Carl’s name. That bench is on Sunningdale Circle in Mutual 14.
The swimming pool was a source of exercise and socialization for the Larsen’s from the very beginning of their time in LW. Ellen continued to attend the water aerobics class up until the time of the closure. Ellen could be easily spotted because she wore a stylish hat that matched her swimsuit. Like many LW residents, she looks forward to the reopening of the pool so that she can get back to the exercise that she enjoys and see her pool friends.
Ellen has 3 children, 8 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren.
