Annual Senior Citizens Luncheon hosted by XGDF of NY.
On Saturday 23rd November, some members under the direction of Kingsland Felix, Chair
research and Development Committee, and members of the Entertainment Committee, welcomed
senior citizens from the community at the Association Hall on Rockaway Blvd. for a midday meal
and musical entertainment.
The hosts were tremendously heartened this year to have some of the guests reciprocate by
coming to the event fully prepared to contribute to the entertainment. Led by Ms. Leonie Alert,
five ladies of the Rockaway Senior Center situated at 143rd St. and Rockaway Blvd., including
Clara Jessop, Louise Forrest and Joyce Mahario, put on such a spirited display of
choreographed dancing that they soon had some of the hosts, notably Gerry and Naomi joining
in. All this brought smiles and laughter to the faces of the assembled guests and hosts, and the
spirit of the gathering swiftly changed from formal to carefree.
The gathering was also blessed by the soothing sounds of the "Megasonic Solo Band" operated
by ex GDF soldier Charlie Elgin, who provided his services free of charge.
We wish to thank all those members who contributed to the success of this event.
XGDF Of NY PARTICIPATES IN NATIONAL WREATH LAYING CEREMONY.
At our AGM in November we were visited by SSGT. of the US Air Force Staff Sergeant
Candace King (based in North Caroline) who sought donations for a Wreath Laying
Ceremony in honor of all Servicemen and Women for their selfless sacrifice, and also
honoring their families who will be without their loved ones during this holiday season.
The members of the association “passed the hat around” and the total amount collected
was $140.00. The Association matched this, rounding the total donation off to an even
number of $300.00.
The total number of wreaths purchased on our behalf was 20. All wreaths will be
delivered directly to Evergreen Memorial Cemetery on December 14th and will be placed
on the final resting places of our heroes by community volunteers.
Thanks to all who contributed.
