As we enter the new year, all us folks here at WLCAC can’t help but grow excited for 2015: Fifty years after WLCAC was founded in 1965 by my grandpa, Ted Watkins Sr.
After the Watts riots ravaged the City of Los Angeles in historic revolt;
Of service, building, success, fun, friendship and love;
Of struggle, challenges, failures, setbacks and frustration;
(Say hi to Rosby, the woman behind one of the voices you’ll hear when calling WLCAC.)
(Say hi to Ron, who keeps our seven-acre sanctuary in top shape, has an amazing singing voice, and will help make your event a success.)
(Say hi to Tim, our tireless leader for nearly 15 years who is also a husband, father, grandfather, and plays a mean piano in the lobby after hours.)
Here at WLCAC we believe there is purpose and value to be found in every moment, in every life.
(Say hi to Watts Dog, our mascot who you’ll see sunbathing or defending our sanctuary on any given day.)
Today, more than ever we are so thankful to those who have supported us and walked this journey in partnership whether as a teammate, co-laborer, or critic.
