The Rotary Club of Baldwinsville is still accepting registration for this year's Senior Citizen Christmas Party, being held Wednesday Dec. 8.
Located at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton church on Route 31 in Baldwinsville, the event includes a meal, entertainment and a great opportunity to share in holiday fellowship. A full turkey dinner with all the trimmings will be served to all seniors in attendance and deliveries will be made to those who are homebound. Santa will pay a visit, as well as a choral performance by 100 students from the Baldwinsville schools. Each senior will leave with a holiday gift, generously donated by area businesses and individuals.
Seniors who live in the Baldwinsville school district and the towns of Lysander and Van Buren are welcome to attend this free event. Eligible seniors can register at Canton Woods Senior Center by calling 638-4536 by Dec. 1. When registering for home deliveries, please make sure someone will be home to accept the delivery as we cannot leave meals on a doorstep.
The Senior Citizen Christmas Party is one of the many events the Rotary Club of Baldwinsville organizes in the community, in addition to Seneca River Days every July and distributing dictionaries to every third grader in all Baldwinsville schools.
As one of more than 33,000 Rotary Clubs around the world, the Baldwinsville club also participates in Rotary International projects to eradicate polio, create access to clean water and eliminate illiteracy. The Rotary Club of Baldwinsville meets at the First United Methodist Church on Charlotte Street every Wednesday of the month, for breakfast the first week at 7:30 a.m. and at 12:15 p.m. for lunch for the rest of the month.
