WHTIE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Seniors who have given their time and talent to improve the lives of the community at large will be honored during the 33rd annual Westchester Senior Citizen Hall of Fame awards luncheon on Friday, Dec. 4.
Former White Plains Mayor Joseph M. Delfino has been selected as the top honoree at the event, according to County Executive Rob Astorino
Delfino is one of 34 seniors from 18 municipalities who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown.
"The Senior Hall of Fame is a Westchester tradition that recognizes seniors who have generously given their time and talent to improve their home communities and the county at large," Astorino said. "This is especially true for this year's top honoree, Mayor Delfino. As a public servant for more than 30 years, he accomplished much for the people of Westchester County – including the revitalization of downtown White Plains. But more than that, he would never shy away from personally helping anyone. He showed respect and concern for all, and we are so pleased to recognize him with this award."
Four seniors will also receive Special Recognition this year including: Thomas Basher, Tarrytown; Jo Falcone, White Plains; John Howard, Mount Vernon, and Pearl Quarrels, New Rochelle.
The Gerard Carelli Orchestra will play music for dancing. To sign up or for more information, contact Rose Cappa at email@example.com or (914) 747-0519.
The Senior Hall of Fame is sponsored and presented by the Westchester County Department of Seniors Programs and Services (DSPS); the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation; and the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services. United Hebrew of New Rochelle has also joined as sponsor.
