LPA OWLS Mission Statement 

The Older Wiser Little Seniors (OWLS) Group, a passionate group of Little People of America members ages 50 and older, is focused on supporting all members of LPA as they plan for a good life while they age. The OWLS group will identify issues, opportunities, and share information so that our senior members can live and enrich their lives to the fullest and that members of all ages in the LPA organization may benefit from our skills and experience.

OWLS Online 

The OWLS Online Zoom calls started back in July 2020, just a few months into the COVID pandemic.  Over 1,300 OWLS within LPA were in need of some social connection with their LPA family.  We all had a feeling that it might be awhile until we could see each other in-person.  What was started as a general online chat call has now become a permanent part of the OWLS Group offerings.  

These online Zoom calls are held on the 3rd Sunday of every other month, and have become a vital part of staying together as a community.  By inviting guest presenters, we've had some awesome Zoom calls led by various members of the LPA OWLS community and the LPA community in general.    

SAVE THE DATE!
