The Holy Trinity Seniors held its meeting at the Dunkirk Lighthouse on Thursday. President Rita Lombardo gave the Invocation "Hail Mary" and a reading titled "Today." All the members enjoyed a brown bag luncheon, picnic style.
Lombardo put a yellow tablecloth on one of the tables, volunteers put a brown one on the other one and they placed the tables under shade trees. It was a beautiful day, light breeze, well-kept grounds. The group had a wonderful time.
Mary Dunbar brought a watermelon and banana bread. She also brought two plants which she placed on the table and asked everyone to identify them. Guest Grace Carreras-Rosario with her husband, Frank, guessed the coffee plant; no one guessed the cocoa plant.

Holy Trinity Senior Citizens made their first visit to the Lighthouse. The day included a tour and a picnic luncheon. First row: Grace Carreras Rosario, Josephine Militello, Rita Lombardo and Josie Wierczynski.
Second row: Frank Rosario, Kathy Damiano and Mary Dunbar.
The tour was very informative and the volunteers were pleasant. The guide was Pam. If anyone has not visited the Lighthouse, the club encourages them to do so.
Secretary Josie Wierczynski read the minutes of the previous meeting; they were accepted as read.
Lombardo read the financial report; it was accepted by Kathy Damiano. Dues are now being collected. The group is planning to have a Halloween party at the next meeting on Thursday, Oct. 11 at Bob Evans. Everyone is urged to wear a costume.
Thanksgiving dinner will be at the Kosciuszko Club on Nevins Street. The club plans to have the Christmas party at the White Inn. More details will follow at the next meeting.
