Langley Center Park Named in Honor of Beth Ryan

By EGP News Report

The Beth Ryan Park at Langley Center was dedicated October 4, under an umbrella of newly planted trees, by a gathering of elected officials, family and friends

Over the years Beth Ryan’s name has been synonymous with the vibrant Senior Center that features trips and tours, weekly dances, a daily lunch program, plus dozens and dozens of classes and activities for Monterey Park senior citizens. Ryan has also been the driving force in getting the center expanded five times, through her work with the Monterey Park Friends of Seniors organization.

The Monterey Park City Council unanimously voted in June to name the park in her honor.

A Tree Memorial Ceremony was also held in honor of both Mrs. Ryan and former Mayor Benjamin “Frank” Venti, who was first elected to the Monterey Park City Council in 1999 and served three terms as mayor.
