TOURNAMENT OF ROSES FOUNDATION
The Pasadena Village was recently awarded a grant
to help with the restructuring of our volunteer program to attract, train and provide greater support for volunteers. The Village will also purchase new technology, software, and safety trainings. Village members and volunteers are creating a caring community of older adults who remain active and connected as they age.
AT THE PASADENA VILLAGE
Several Village Members enjoyed a day at the
King Tut Exhibit: Treasures of the Golden Pharoh
at the California Science Center in Los Angeles
Urban walkers explore the many diverse neighborhoods of our community during weekly walks of 3-4 miles in length.
During their walks they are able to learn more about the different areas where Pasadena Village Members reside as well as each other, while enjoying coffee and pastries at local coffee shops.
As it name implies, this is easy walking for those who prefer something a bit more laid-back than the excellent, energetic walks already available
The EZ Walkers meet every Wednesday.
If you would like to join this group, please contact

This energetic group of Hikers meet on the 2nd Friday of every month. Throughout the year they have hiked the trails of
Monrovia Canyon Park
up to the waterfalls, Cherry Canyon Trails, Santa Clarita Woodland Reserve, Chantry Flats and the forest trail along the summit of Mt Wilson.
If you would like to join this group,
please contact Peter LeSourd
On a beautiful early, summer June morning, the Hikers made their first foray of the year up the Angeles Crest highway to the Switzer Picnic Area. Appreciating the air cool, the day clear as they hiked under the sun-dappled forest canopy, down the famous Gabriolino trail at the very upper end of the Arroyo Seco canyon, ending at the former site of the equally famous Commodore Switzer Trail Camp near the top of Switzer Falls, and down to the cascades in the stream below the falls.
On another foray, several Village Hikers took off on a Sunday for an unexpectedly challenging “pre-hike” from Eaton Saddle to Mt Lowe off Angeles Crest Highway.

Welcome to the Pasadena Village – I am so happy you’re visiting our website! Just so you are clear, we are not a place to live, but a way to live.
The Pasadena Village is part of a national movement – a growing one due to our rising population. There are 300 active Villages with an equal number being formed, an exciting development with powerful implications.
The Pasadena Village was founded in 2010 by a small group of friends and neighbors who wanted an alternative to retirement communities and nursing homes for themselves. They created lists of the services that would help them live their lives in their own homes and their familiar neighborhood: support from friends (and making new ones), educational forums, cultural adventures, rides to stores and doctors’ appointments, referrals to home health care professionals, assistance with minor home maintenance and repairs, check-in telephone calls, and multitudes of other things.
We are a true grass roots, member based organization. We are self-governing and have a board of directors, an executive committee and several committees that keep our nonprofit Village moving forward. Our philosophy is based upon mutual support and active involvement by all members – even the smallest participation will enhance your happiness and life activities and that of our group.
The Village is not a social service organization, but one of support. We cannot provide full time care or meals or manage your life, but we do have fun, learn, make new friends and help each other. Our Village is a work in progress and changes according to members’ needs and choices. If you want a group of people to join you for sketching in the park, hiking, birdwatching, discussing critical issues, you will find them here. If you like to join others for dinner, share your art work, volunteer, come to a support group, this is your organization.
I look forward to meeting you!
