Gramatan Village Members, Volunteers, and Community Members Participate in Two Programs in June PDF Print Email

alt

By Sherry Saturno, Executive Director, Gramatan Village

Jul. 3, 2019:  In June, Gramatan Village members, volunteers, and community friends had the opportunity to participate in two great programs.

The first program was an interactive workshop on compassionate listening with Gilda Press, former director of senior programs and services for the Town of Eastchester. This interactive workshop explored loss, loneliness, active listening, support, and encouragement. Gramatan Village's executive director, Sherry Saturno, stated, “At Gramatan Village, our volunteers are our heroes. We stress a personalized and meaningful role for each one of our volunteers that speak to the passions and causes that are important to them. Gilda led us in an engaging and insightful discussion about how we can make a difference in the lives of our members.”

Also in June, volunteers from the Junior League of Bronxville brightened the day for Gramatan Village members during a fun “crafternoon” activity. As part of a Done in a Day project, the League volunteers partnered with Gramatan Village members to create colorful picture frames, keepsake boxes, and decorated birdhouses.

May 29, 2019:  Following the 99th annual Memorial Day parade, on a glorious day, Mayor Mary Marvin stood in front of Bronxville Village Hall and drew the winner of the annual free parking space raffle from an overflowing basket of ticket stubs. After reaching deep into the basket, she pulled a ticket and unfolded it. The ticket bore the name of Joe Houlihan, this year’s winner.

The Senior Citizens Council organizes the raffle each year to raise funds to support our senior citizens programs. The council is truly grateful to the Village of Bronxville for very generously contributing the incredible prize for the raffle. The council is also grateful to Citibank, OpaOpa Fresh Greek, and Studio One for their continued support. The council is very appreciative to everyone who bought raffle tickets and sent donations in support of this important fundraiser for our seniors.

As an avid volunteer and active member of the community, Paige has served with many local charities and civic organizations and is an especially active parishioner of Christ Church Bronxville. She has been an enthusiastic member of the musical therapy ensemble The Song Pipers, which performed at the event, for almost forty years. She donates her time, talent, and treasures where she thinks doing so might help others.

Gramatan Village's president, Kerry Walsh, said, “Paige brings happiness, joy, laughter, and fun to all of us. She is a shining example of spreading sunshine to all.” Gramatan Village's executive director, Sherry Saturno, remarked, "Frank Lloyd Wright once said, 'The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.' That notion is proved true to me every day by our members through their zest for life, enthusiasm, and community engagement. Thank you, Paige, for your amazing dedication to the community."
