The Ocean View-Merced Heights-Ingleside Senior Center held its annual Lunar New Year celebration on Tuesday, Feb. 27. The full day’s program included OMI seniors performing New Year’s songs in English and Chinese, dances by the San Francisco Guangchang Line Dancing Group, a raffle, and a sumptuous 17-course lunch. After lunch, a troupe of retired members of the SF Police Department’s Lion Dance team entertained the crowd, who happily followed them around the hall. The troupe has been performing for 30 years and certainly knew how to work the crowd, many of whom clustered around the two lions with their iPads and smartphones.
