Reviving OASIS

Dear Editor:As Henry Veneracion reported in his excellent article, "Glimmer of Hope Remains for OASIS" (7/15/10), it seems everything is in place for OASIS to start up again, fully-funded and staffed and in the same convenient location. As Harold Tseklenis, Downey activist who keeps tabs on what is going on, on behalf of all of us citizens, is quoted in the article as saying, "all the city had to do is provide the funding, and it appears that City Manager Gerald Caton would exert his expertise and find the funds needed to do so." I would urge the City Council to vote to continue this wonderful and stimulating program for seniors in our community. Outreach programs which enhance life for all of us is what makes Downey a special place to live. - Lorine Parks, Downey
