Changes at Senior Scene

Pat Jenkins has joined Senior Scene as its editor. He replaces Bonnie Dickson, who was the editor for eight years.

During a career in journalism and communications that has spanned 30 years, Jenkins has been an editor of newspapers in Washington and Hawaii and a computer industry magazine in California. In addition to his duties with Senior Scene, he is editor of The Dispatch, a weekly newspaper based in Eatonville that covers south Pierce County.

Jenkins’ community involvement includes serving as a member of the Puyallup School Board. He lives in Puyallup, is married and has two children – a grown son who also lives in Puyallup, and a daughter who is a college freshman.

In another change involving Senior Scene, Dorothy Moe is retiring after 15 years as one of its advertising representatives.

“It has been my pleasure to meet and talk with many of our advertisers and readers the past 15 years,” Moe said. “As I retire, I want to thank each of you for making my job easier.”

Dickson, who is now pursuing other professional interests, was honored for her long tenure with Senior Scene during the 2012 Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources appreciation luncheon Dec. 18 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Tacoma.
