Smith Announces Senior Appreciation Events
Seniors will be treated to health fairs, a fashion show, seminars and entertainment as part of Senior Appreciation Week, next month.
The week of September 13-19 is a time when communities can celebrate senior citizens and their contribution to our neighborhoods, Senator Malcolm Smith said.
Different events announced by Smith could draw a total of between five and ten thousand seniors. On Sunday, September 14, Congressman Gregory Meeks will host a large health fair at FRHS from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. All are welcome. Smith has also introduced a legislative resolution calling for Governor Pataki to officially declare the week as Senior Appreciation Week.
On September 13, Smith will kick things off with a luncheon, noon to 3 p.m. at Thomasina’s Restaurant in St. Albans.
"During the week, we are encouraging neighbors to look out for seniors by reading a book to them, assisting them with grocery shopping, visiting a homebound senior, or organizing a visit to a senior center."
