On December 20, Laguna Woods Village resident Irv Piken celebrated his 108th birthday at the Community Center Fitness Center! Irv is a beloved fixture at the fitness center, and was joined by over two dozen friends, family and fellow Village fitness enthusiasts to celebrate this impressive milestone.
