Discovery Health Channel
looks at Aging and Longevity

A British production crew traveled to Phoenix, Ariz., to interview
Lynn for a Discovery Health Channel three-part series on aging
and longevity.

Evelyn Peters, Regina Fox, Lynn and Sherrie Korer 


The crew also covered one of the frequent centenarian get-togethers Lynn hosts at her home and talked with several more centenarians.

 Pictured here are (from left to right) Evelyn Peters, NCAP's number one volunteer and Lynn's mom; Regina Fox, 102; Lynn; and Sherrie Korer, Regina's granddaughter.

Getting Ready
Early arrivals, Mr. and Mrs. Freestone and Lenore Schaeffer, chat with Lynn and Evelyn while Lynn finishes a flower arrangement in her husband's grandmother's silver flower bowl.
Getting ready for the taping

Lynn with Ruth Botimer 
Lynn greets Ruth Botimer, widow of our long time friend Lloyd Botimer, who passed away in 1999.

The producer talking with new centenarian friends, Buleah Morrison of Michigan, who is spending the winter in Arizona. Buleah is becoming familiar with the term "snowbird." Also pictured is Alma Jelle, who reached the century mark last May and says she is "enjoying every minute of it."

 Chatting during the taping

 Erika, a producer, with Lenore Schaeffer Lenore Schaeffer and production assistant Erika share some cake and conversation. Lenore remarks that while she's always happy to meet new centenarians, she misses "the old gang."

We miss them, too: Lloyd Botimer, Minnie O'Donnell, Merle McEathron, Ben Levinson… and so many others. Although they are not with us, their memory and joyful spirit live on in our hearts.
