Since 1939, the Pelham Civic Association has been dedicated to volunteering their time to assist the youth, the needy, the mentally and physically challenged, and last, but not least, the elderly. So on Monday afternoon, October 28th, The Pelham Civic Association held a luncheon for the Senior Citizens Club of Pelham during the senior’s weekly meeting at the Daronco Town House.
Pelham Civic member Tim Case organized the Halloween themed lunch and he was joined by several other Civic members and a few of their wives to help serve the seniors lunch.

According to Tim, “It’s always a great day when we can come and serve lunch to this wonderful group. I think the volunteers enjoy the day almost as much as the seniors.”
The organized, festive event was complete with a full lunch spread and Halloween cookies for dessert. The Daronco Town House was filled with Halloween decorations.
