The Arcadia Community Coordinating Council (ACCC,) an integral part of the community 
since 1947, coordinates an annual campership program giving children of 
low-income families in Arcadia, age 18 and under, the opportunity to participate in 
summer camps and other recreational activities that they may not otherwise be able 
to attend. The ACCC recently received its largest single donation to its Campership 
Program from the estate of Steve and Shirley Sanderson, long time volunteers and supporters 
of the community of Arcadia. 

Steve and Shirley Sanderson were lifelong community volunteers serving on the boards 
of the Arcadia Child Health Council, The Arcadia Community Coordinating Council, 
the American Red Cross, The Arcadia Police Department, and the Arcadia Kiwanis. 
Shirley was honored as the Arcadia Senior Citizen of the Year in 2004 and in 2015, 
Arcadia Mayor Dennis Lojeski proclaimed June 10th “Steve & Shirley Sanderson Day” 
in Arcadia in appreciation of their dedication to the community. 


The City of Monrovia, in partnership 
with the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce, 
will be hosting the 56th Annual 
Community Prayer Breakfast next Friday, 
November 18, at the Courtyard by 
the Marriott Hotel. This year's theme is 
"Faith Connections and Building Communities," 
and the speaker will be Pastor 
Eric Eichinger from Our Savior Lutheran 
Church. Registration is now $55 
per person, and all interested community 
members can register until Tuesday, 
November 15. There will be limited 
first-come, first-served registrations 
at the door on the day of the event, but 
there is no guarantee of the number of 
registrations that will be available, so 
register today!

Steve and Shirley Sanderson continued to show their support of the community they 
loved posthumously by designating that their furniture and household items be sold 
and that the proceeds be donated to the Arcadia Community Coordinating Council's 
Campership Fund. Their great niece and local resident, Kristen Knight and her family, 
(above) handled Steve and Shirley’s closing affairs and conducted the sale according 
to their wishes. That sale raised $1,700 and is the largest single individual donation 
received by ACCC for Camperships. 

Each year the ACCC Campership Program sends approximately 100 underprivileged 
children and youth in Arcadia to a variety of camps and activities. These campership 
opportunities include Arcadia Music Camp for Arcadia High School students, week-
long resident and day camps, sports camps, and a variety of day excursions that they 
would not otherwise be able to participate in. In partnership with the Arcadia Assis-
tance League who provides clothing and camp supplies like sleeping bags and hygiene 
kits for the campers, ACCC Campership Program Coordinator, Genevieve Valiquette, 
herself an ACCC Campership recipient as a child, work with families to ensure that 
these children have the opportunity to enjoy these lifetime experiences. This program 
is funded solely through donations from the community. For more information and
