Irvine Evergreen Chinese Senior Association

Irvine Evergreen Chinese Senior Association (IECSA) is a non-profit organization that is independently run without any political or religious affiliation. Our mission is to encourage a social network enhancing the quality of life for the Chinese seniors that live in Irvine. The IECSA bulletin board at Lakeview Senior Center posts a schedule of monthly activities, events and information that are beneficial to aging adults. We like to hear your ideas and suggestions. A suggestion box is located at the front desk at Lakeview Senior Center. 

Membership fees: $35 per year for adults age 55 and older.

For more information, contact Jerry Chang.
