the Holidays” ceremony Tuesday at Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport.


Patricia Jones, Jack Meyer and August Westpfall were among those

who won tickets.

seniors from North Hollywood to Pasadena with tickets good for any of


the company’s scheduled travel destinations to be used between Dec. 1

tickets through the program.

The winners applied in late August at the Joslyn Adult Center and
