We Are Seniors
Seniors serving one another
This is our goal – there is no other.
Someone’s son, someone’s mother
Someone’s father – someone’s brother.
Someone’s wife and sister too.
Serving others is what we do.
Serving daily – everywhere
With compassion and loving care.
We are seniors – serving society
As we serve along life’s way
Serving each and every day
With hope and help, this we pray.
We are seniors serving one another
This is our goal – there is no other
Come and join us in our quest
As you serve – you will be blessed.

Note: Daniel H. Birks is a Salvation Army Major, retired. He’s been
at CASCADIAN PLACE conducting the memorial service for Alice Leichtman, his former sister-in-law. The inspiration for Birks to compose “We Are Seniors” came from viewing a plaque in CASCADIAN PLACE’s Dining Room dedicated to seniors serving seniors.
