alt

By Sherry Saturno, Executive Director, Gramatan Village


Feb. 20, 2019:  Gramatan Village is excited to announce that the first episode of its new podcast, Reimagine Aging, is now available on the Gramatan Village website and its YouTube channel.

Podcasts are audio shows that are similar to radio shows, but instead of being broadcast over the airwaves, they are posted online. With podcasts, listeners can tune in to listen whenever it is convenient for them.

The intent of the Reimagine Aging podcast is to provide a new and engaging forum to feature members, community leaders, and volunteers while exploring themes and issues.

The first episode features the winner of Gramatan Village's Gratitude Challenge, Joan Golan, and explores a theme of gratitude and community. Reimagine Aging is co-hosted by Sherry Saturno, executive director of Gramatan Village, and Kathryn Urbina, director of member services & programs.

Gramatan Village’s Volunteers Spread Holiday Cheer at Wartburg PDF Print Email

By Sherry Saturno, Executive Director, Gramatan Village


Jan. 9, 2018:  Gramatan Village, a nonprofit organization that supports empowered aging-in-community, has collaborated with the Volunteer New York! RISE program, which helps connect young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to volunteer projects where they can practice job-readiness skills. 

As part of this integrated service project, Gramatan Village and RISE volunteers worked together to create 144 festively wrapped holiday presents for residents in need at the Wartburg, a premier residential and health care facility in Mount Vernon. “We think a pair of socks wrapped, gifted, and delivered by a volunteer who cares is a lot more than just a pair of warm socks, it’s a warm memory and a way to feel connected. That’s what’s important,” said Gramatan Village’s executive director, Sherry Saturno, who participated in the event.

Gramatan Village and Volunteer New York! delivered the gifts to residents at the Wartburg’s Meadowview Assisted Living Facility, memory care unit, and adult day program on Thursday, December 20. The residents were excited to sing holiday carols together with the volunteers.

Gramatan Village and Volunteer New York! are delighted to participate in this act of community engagement and to have the opportunity to spread holiday cheer. “We are so thankful for our partnership with Gramatan Village. The generosity of their members and RISE program volunteers is sure to bring a smile to our residents this holiday season,” said Angela Ciminello, vice president of development and marketing at the Wartburg.
