Mission Housing seniors gather at Alcantara Court for a three hour social

On Friday, August 5, the Resident Services Department of Mission Housing Development Corporation hosted several dozen seniors at a Mexican-themed summer luncheon and social.

Residents from Alcantara Court, Apartamentos de la Esperanza, and the Abel Gonzalez Apartments came to the Alcantara Court community room to enjoy each other’s company, and have fun participating in raffles — and even dancing!

The meal, catered by San Jalisco, was delivered restaurant-style to each diner. A lively soundtrack of Mexican music was piped-in to the room during the event. Some of the seniors invited young relatives.

Once lunch was served, Mission Housing and Caritas Management staff conducted a raffle for a wide variety of valuable prizes.

“Every summer we throw a little party as a way of showing our seniors how much we appreciate them,” said Martín Ugarte of Mission Housing. “These luncheons are also a great way for our residents to engage with one another.”

After lunch and dessert was served the music was turned up a little louder. Some of the residents kicked-up their heels and brought some merriment to the gathering.
