Upcoming Quarterly Birthday Party
“We are always the same age inside.” - Gertrude Stein
Cathy Mackay, director of the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging, has announced plans for the upcoming quarterly birthday party to be held at the Senior Wellness and Nutrition sites. The birthday party will be held on Thursday, July 25, and will celebrate the birthdays of people born during the months of July, August, and September. Mrs. Mackay said, “This is a great time for people to get together and celebrate one another’s birthdays. If you have never had the opportunity to visit the nutrition site in your community and it is your birthday, we would like to invite you to attend this celebration.”
The birthday party will be held during the noontime meal at the 11 congregate dining sites located in Cattaraugus County. The menu will consist of a homemade BBQ beef sandwich on a roll, antipasto salad, mixed vegetables, and apple juice. All sites will have a choice of reduced fat or fat-free milk. Dessert will be birthday cake and ice cream.
Reservations are required 24 hours in advance and can be made by calling the nutrition site of your choice. A suggested voluntary donation of $3.25 is requested towards the cost of the meal; however, no one will be denied a meal for the inability or the unwillingness to contribute.
If you are over 60 years of age and have never been to a nutrition site before, this is a good time to visit. There is a good chance that you will meet up with an old friend or possibly meet a new one. If you have been to the nutrition site before, invite a friend to join you for the birthday party!
