FEATURE: Retirees turn silver years into golden age

Established in 1995, the Taichung-based foundation has come up with many “unexpected” activities for senior citizens, Lin said.

One of the activities was a Broadway show, which was performed at the Taipei Arena on Tuesday.

The venue usually sees concerts by young pop entertainers such as Japan’s idol group Arashi, South Korea’s Super Junior and American singer Jason Mraz.

The foundation has also organized senior baseball games, talent show competitions and has even brought elderly people back to the military for a day, so they may relive their past experiences of Taiwan’s mandatory military service, according to Lin.

“Some people call me crazy, but I really feel happy that I can listen to these senior citizens’ dreams and help them realize them,” Lin said.
