WESTFIELD — On Nov. 7, participants of the Office for the Aging’s Senior Dining Site Program at the Westfield YMCA celebrated the 90th Birthday of Dee Kaufman, who is a longtime participant of the program. The birthday party, which followed a lunch of ravioli or chicken salad sandwich, was organized by Site Manager Frankie Rothwell.

“This is our second 90th birthday celebration this fall,” said Rothwell. “These ladies come to the dining site each Tuesday to enjoy getting together, eating a good meal and playing cards.”

Office for the Aging serves noon meals at several sites throughout the county. Seniors age 60 and over can enjoy not only a delicious and nutritious meal but fellowship, recreation and educational opportunities. Reservations are required. For more information, call NY CONNECTS at 753-4582.
