The Westfield Senior Citizens met Sept. 12 at the YWCA to celebrate their 55th anniversary. A delicious dinner was catered by the Bark Grill. Thirty Seven members were in attendance.
Following the meal, the group was entertained by Lois and Greg Hoitink, mother and son musicians. They presented a delightful program of fiddle music including the old favorite "Orange Blossom Special" skillfully played by Greg.
The business meeting was called to order by President Shirley Kolpien. Chaplain Joyce Wainwright read as devotions "Autumn Splendor" by Michael Dubina and "God's Works are Everylasting" by Clay Harrison.
August birthdays were celebrated by Betty Reid, Carlson Stetson, Sylvia Colbey and Geri Harper. In September, Jack Dean, Margaret Gindling, Judy Cash and Lucille Inwood. Gloria and Ralph Wakeley had an anniversary.
The 50/50 was won by Cathy Best and the door prize by Wally Haley.
The Oct. 10 meeting will be held at noon at the YWCA. A nominating committee will be appointed. This will be a pot-luck with members bringing a dish to pass and their table service. The desserts will be brought by the kitchen committee: Gladys Hess, Betty Wilson, Pat Everts, Jean Stebell and Darla Augur. The speaker will be Lynn Austin of Hospice.
Members are asked to start thinking about hats, mittens, etc. for Unicef Relief, which will be collected at the November meeting.
