Monrovia Providers Group Holds ANNUAL Tea and Fashion Show

Hundreds of people enjoyed the annual Tea and Fashion show Thursday at Monrovia’s Community Center. With some very elegant models sporting the latest fashions courtesy of Old Navy, the ladies were escorted by well-liked Englishman Mark Barrett.

After tea, the ladies swirled around the floor swishing from table to table to roars of appreciation.
The oldest model in the show was a very young 92.


In 1997, representatives from Santa Anita Family Service, the Monrovia Police Department and Leven Oaks Assisted Living retirement home, invited a group of “Providers” of Senior Services in the City of Monrovia to meet for lunch. The agenda was simple: understand the services that were available to the seniors of Monrovia. Their intention was to meet only one time. Participants from the first meeting also included Monrovia Fire Department, the local postmaster, City of Monrovia Code Enforcement, GENISIS, Adult Protective Services, PET Team, Monrovia Community Services and others.

The original group found that there was so much to discuss to help the Seniors of Monrovia, that one meeting was not enough. Each month since that first meeting, the group has continued to meet and share resources. “Monrovia Providers Group, Inc.” was incorporated in 2002 and established as a non-profit organization. Today, Monrovia Providers Group continues to fulfill its mission working with community agencies to identify and address issues relating to senior citizens in the City of Monrovia.
