The Westfield Senior Citizens met Thursday, Jan. 9, for a belated potluck luncheon at the YWCA on Portage Street as the December meeting was postponed due to weather.
President, Shirley Kolpien, opened the meeting with several funny stories.
The 50-50 drawing was won by Mary Cogliano and the door prize was won by Kathy Best.
December birthdays were Darla Auger, Sally Merwin, Betty Wilson, Ralph Wakely and Irma Lloyd who is 90 years young. Dan and Gladys Hess celebrated a wedding anniversary.
January birthdays included Merilyn Elder, Betty Morgenstern, Mary Cogliano and Kathy Best.
A get well card was sent to Fran Anderson.
The installation of officers, also postponed from December elected Shirley Kolpien, president; Pat Smith, vice president; secretary, Kathy Best; treasurer, Delores Kaufman; sunshine, Pat Everts; devotions, Joyce Wainwright; kitchen, Gladys Hess.
The Westfield Fire Department generously donated 10 smoke alarms to the organization. That raffle was held. The fire department also offered to install the alarms.
The February meeting, at the YWCA at noon, Feb. 13, will be a time to update the bylaws of the club, a potluck and Valentine Party. Everyone please bring a signed Valentine.
The kitchen committee for February will be Gladys Hess, Irma Lloyd, Pat Everts, and Kathy Best.
Anyone over age 50 is invited and encouraged to attend the monthly meetings for a nice meal, friendship, entertainment and sometimes an educational program. The dues are $4 per year.
The meeting was closed and Ann Cochran Claus distributed Christmas gifts, much to the enjoyment of all.
