Sep. 20, 2017: Bronxville will hold its fifth annual Salute to Seniors Day on Saturday, September 30. This day-long celebration for our older neighbors is co-sponsored by the Senior Citizens Council, Gramatan Village, NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital, and the Bronxville Rotary Club.
All are encouraged to join this special day. It's a great way to learn about community resources and services that support older residents and is especially valuable for those who may be new to the area or concerned about an aging parent or friend.
A number of community organizations will have informational tables along Pondfield Road from 10:30 am to noon. Three popular restaurants, Underhills Crossing, Fogarty's, and Park 143 Bistro & Fish, will offer "silver plate lunch specials."
The public is invited to the opening reception of the third Annual Speeders 55+ Art Show at 2:00 pm in the Yeager Room of the Bronxville Public Library. This is the third year that the Bronxville Adult School, Bronxville Public Library, Bronxville Senior Citizens, and Gramatan Village will have presented this art show as part of the Salute to Seniors festivities. Local artists over the age of 55 will be showcasing works in a variety of media. All are welcome to attend and enjoy light refreshments.
Salute to Seniors marks the end of Active Aging Week, the annual observance promoted by the International Council on Active Aging®. The weeklong campaign calls attention to and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today. It showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way. This year's theme is "Ignite Your Passion."
From September 24 to September 29, Gramatan Village and the Bronxville and Tuckahoe Senior Citizens will offer programs open to the public that promote healthy lifestyles.
