"It will be interesting to see if we have enough men that they're finally asking the women to dance, rather than otherwise," said Edith Lederberg, executive director of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Broward County in Florida, which plans local senior services.
"We see more men coming to our senior centers than ever before, wanting to do things like shoot pool," Lederberg said.

Edith S. Lederberg Executive Director Aging and Disability Resource Center of Broward County
This year touting a royal theme, ..., 17 Oct 2007 [cached]
This year touting a royal theme, the honorees are: George L. Hanbury, II, PH.D, executive vice president/chief operating officer, Nova Southeastern University (NSU); Edith Schaffer Lederberg, executive director, Aging and Disability Resource Center for Broward County; Dr. Harold "Hackie" Reitman, orthopedic surgeon (retired); Mark Templeton, CEO, Citrix Systems, Inc.; and Levi G. Williams, partner, Fertig and Gramling.
Edith Schaffer Lederberg recently celebrated 30 years with the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Broward County.Throughout her entire career, Lederberg has remained one of the most influential advocates for elders locally and throughout the U.S. One of her many accomplishments as executive director includes the Noble A. McArtor Senior Day Care Center, which was opened after Lederberg recognized the need for a facility that assists gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender seniors.With the help of a small group of dedicated supporters, she fought diligently to open the one-of-a-kind center devoted to this cause.Lederberg was appointed as a Florida Delegate to the White House Conference on Aging, served as president of the Florida Association of Area Agencies on Aging and is a member of the Broward Senior Hall of Fame.
Vulnerable senior citizens not spared from hurricane-caused problems: South Florida Sun-Sentinel [cached]
Edith Lederberg, executive director of the Broward County Area Agency on Aging, hopes to start a campaign where donors can give money to provide flashlights and batteries for low-income seniors living alone.
"This storm was far more frightening to them than even Andrew," she said, referring to the 1992 hurricane that caused many seniors to permanently flee Miami-Dade County for Broward.

''I see this as a vital need,'' says Edith Lederberg, director of Broward's Area Agency on Aging. ''As they get to be older, their needs are the same as everyone else's.I just want a place where they can feel comfortable.''
Activists and aging experts believe this would be the nation's first federally funded, ''gay-friendly'' day care center, where caregivers and others would bring frail or infirm seniors to spend the day.
The proposed center would sit squarely at the nexus of two national trends.Not only is the nation graying, with the over-65 population expected to double to 70 million by the year 2030, but there's a growing desire among gay men and lesbians for housing and other senior services tailored just to them.
The money that will come from the federal government through the state is contingent on the center turning no eligible senior away, Lederberg says, whether gay or not.
Nonetheless, she says, special effort would be made to serve those needing help in Broward County's 15,000-member gay and lesbian senior community.
The county already has eight senior day care centers that also receive federal money.
Florida has long been the nation's testing ground for seniors services.One of every five state residents is 65 or older, a proportion the rest of the country isn't expected to catch up to until 2030.
Like snowbirds of every stripe, gay men and lesbians have come here to retire.
