Letter: Great to be a senior

When I retired six years ago, I began more actively using all of the services of our local senor services. I have continued to be amazed at all of the programs, help, activities and information that the wonderful staff there provides. As I wrote some years ago, Marty, Patty, Mary and Ruth deserve out utmost thanks and praise.

Recently, to add icing to the cake, the senior-service lunch program has had the wonderful experience of a new chef. Julie Bloomingdale has brought a refreshing new addition to our meals along with her assistant, Luciano. It just keeps getting better.
