To The Editor:
The 23rd Annual Seniorama was held August 13th at the Roos House, SUNY Canton. The beautiful facility was enjoyed by all. This year we had vendors from area Businesses, Hospitals, Credit Unions, County agencies, Home Care businesses, Insurance companies, Nursing Homes, Optometrists, Audiologists, Entertainment organizations, Pharmacies, Political Representatives and Candidates, Public Utilities, Senior Organizations and Associations, and Support Services for seniors, a big thank-you to all the Vendors, businesses that took out ads in our Seniorama Booklet, and those that contributed the many door prizes that were given out throughout the day. Your continued support for seniors is greatly appreciated. Seniors were able to talk one-on-one with the many participants and received information and goodies about each.
Thank you to the Canton VFW Post No. 1231 for leading off our opening ceremony, to Kim Briggs for leading the Pledge, to Diane Foote for a beautiful National Anthem and to Father John Downs for our opening prayer. Thank you to Matt Akins from CPH, the band Time-Line, Rochelle LaShomb and the Line Dancers and the group the States for entertaining us throughout the day.
Congratulations to Sandra Woodcock for winning the Lottery Ticket Frame, hope you had some big winners. Seniorama 2014 would not have been a success without the help from Chapter members who helped get ads, gables, door prizes, sold raffle tickets and helped that day. The North Country Chapter, of New York State Wide Senior Action Council, brings this Health and Information Fair to the area each year to help keep seniors informed. We are a not-for-profit grassroots membership organization made up of individuals and organizations with an interest in improving the lives of senior citizens. We meet the first Thursday of the month, except January, February, July and August, at 9:30 a.m. for coffee, business meeting at 10 a.m., speaker at 10:30 a.m., and lunch at 12. Anyone 18 and older can belong. For information contact President Linda Wilkinson at 265-4464.
