Westminster, CA – The National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA) recently honored the Public Cable Television Authority with an honorable mention award for PCTA’s local television series spotlighting senior citizens, “Young at Heart.” The program is produced by Westminster resident C.

PCTA’s honorable mention award for “Young at Heart” is in the Programming for Seniors category.
“Young at Heart” has covered activities at the Westminster Senior Center such as Friday afternoon dances, the Longevity Stick class, and a tea party featuring the ladies from the Red Hat Society.
