Hilltowns

The Hilltown Seniors met for our September meeting and Memory Day with over 70 members gracing us with their presence.

We read our reports, talked about our August trip to Cape Cod, and look forward to our Lake George trip to the Outlets and Dinner Theater. We sang numerous birthday greetings (yes, we sang one more time to Linda McDermott; I think that was about 20 times we sang to her — teehee!). Anniversary greetings were sung to one very special couple.

Our next order of business was our Memory Day. We told some very special memories of our past president, friend, and family member Linda Carman.

I had a memory tree where memory cards were placed on it and then given to the family to take home. Also, we had a wishing well built, a plaque made, and a quilt-rack holder to hold a quilt made under her guidance by senior-citizen members.

We also had barbecued chicken by BBQ Delights and Stewart’s make-your-own sundae! Wow, what a special day it was! Thanks to all who made it possible!

Hope to see everyone next month at our meeting. for those who are leaving for Florida or other unknown places — you will be missed!

On a beautiful Saturday morning, over 70 members met for the Hilltown Seniors’ monthly meeting at the Hilltown Community Senior Access Center. 

We opened our meeting where we read our reports from last month, talked about our upcoming barbecue, and heard our travel report update on trips. We’re going to the Mac-Haydn Theatre on Thursday, July 25, departing from the Senior Center in Berne at 10 a.m. and from Westerlo at 10:15 a.m. to see a “Ragtime” production with lunch to follow. Then we have our five-day trip to Cape Cod in August. It’s always good to travel and enjoy the many wonders around us.

Charlotte Fuss and Karen Stark updated us on a new Albany County program that lets seniors dine for free at 10 restaurants. Check this out on the website for the Albany County Department of Aging, under Dine & Go.

Also, we’re celebrating the second anniversary of our ACCESS (Albany County Center for Essential Supportive Services) Hilltowns office on July 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. when a Resource Fair will be held with information on many different topics available.

Altamont Fair forms are available to submit your entries.

Our book club is meeting to discuss our books and always welcome new members.

We celebrated many birthdays and one anniversary with song and then I noted these July events: National French Fry Day, Dog Days of Summer, and Barbershop Music Appreciation where our own barbershop quartet was chosen at random and given lyrics to sing and wow is all I can say — they stepped up to the plate and pleasantly surprised us all with great-sounding voices.

We’re looking forward to next month’s meeting and remember: Some of the best memories are made in flip-flops.
