Recognizing the accomplishments of the seasoned and mature, Pastor Rosalynn K. Brookins and Walker Temple A.M.E. Church hosted the First Annual Senior Tea and more than 125 attended representing L.A.’s African American, Latino, and Korean American communities.

The multi-cultural event featured faith leaders, elected officials and members of California Highway Patrol and LAPD-Newton Division. Also, several businesses and community organizations collaborated with Walker Temple to provide refreshments, entertainment, giveaways and senior resource information.

“This tea is in honor of those who planted the seed and paved the way for so many of us,” said Pastor Brookins.  “We give a special thank-you to our many partners for their assistance in making this occasion a success.  We could not have done it without them.”

The organizations that united with Walker Temple included Iglesias Cristana of Los Angeles (The Christian Church of Los Angeles), Good News Church, Universal Care/Brand New Day Health Plan, National Council of Negro Women, The Children’s Collective, and the Asian American Drug Abuse Program.
