One of the earliest contributors to the Community Living Campaign was Judy Auda, who passed away on May 25 after a long struggle following a major stroke. We want to celebrate her works with us and with a number of community organizations along the way. For CLC, she helped ran our first computer training program, developed our annual events, created the Seeds of Hope Garden party journey, and organized several City Hall events for us with support from the Dept. of Disability and Aging, including the Alzeheimers and Dementia Summit, the Health Aging Summit, and the Aging and Disability and Technology Summit. Plus so many fun activities and adventures along the way. There were civic events that she helped organize and some mementos are included in the slide show below. Judy was always a kid at heart and was gifted in terms of thinking up fun community events for kids young and old. Think of the fun event with balloons, the “belly laugh”, and kites flown from hilltops across the city. She organized 49 Night at the SF Zoo, the 50 year anniversary at Fort Mason and it USO club. She helped organize the Golden Gate Bride Centennial with a special plaza to mark the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. And because we wanted to be fun like Judy, we stood on street corners across the City and all sang the San Francisco song that Jeanette MacDonald made famous at the appointed time. And oh yes, there was the Pacific Ha, an organized minute of laughter that stretched the length of the West Coast. Her imagination and attention to detail made her our pied piper for community engagement and we’re not sure what we will do without her.
