Join 'Salute to Seniors' this Saturday, September 28, Starting at Village Hall Print


Sep. 25, 2013:  This Saturday, September 28, there will be a village-wide celebration of our senior citizens. Two local not-for-profit organizations that work with seniors, Gramatan Village and the Bronxville Senior Citizens, have joined forces with the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Bronxville to make Salute to Seniors a memorable day for all.

The day kicks off on the village hall front lawn with remarks by Mayor Mary Marvin and some local organization representatives; light refreshments follow the opening ceremony. We hope you will all join us.

Next, follow the crowd to the Bronxville High School lawn and join in a tai chi class. The energizer bunny Evey Riccobono will be our pied piper and lead a spirited walk into the village business district, where most businesses are graciously offering specials throughout the entire day for all seniors. Our businesses have always been the community’s best supporters. We now hope you will support them and also take advantage of their many generous offerings. 

There will be informational tables from 10:30 am to noon in front of 81 Pondfield Road with representatives from Lawrence Hospital Center and local organizations with helpful senior-related information. 

After you have enjoyed a nice lunch in town, head to the Bronxville Public Library, where the film Quartet starring Maggie Smith will be shown at 1:30 pm in the Yeager Community Room. There will be a free raffle after the movie, followed by a Frank Sinatra impersonator. 

In case you still aren't done in, head back to the village for early bird specials at one of our many restaurants.
