Pound Ridge seniors get in the holiday spirit

Luncheon guest Rose Lamont Stackhouse.

 

Poinsettias by the dozens, punch with sherbet and a special visit by Old St. Nick were just a few of the highlights enjoyed by more than 80 Pound Ridge senior citizens, who came to Conant Hall Dec. 8 for the town’s annual Neighbor to Neighbor Holiday Lunch.

“It’s a wonderful time for family,” said Rose Lamont Stackhouse, one of the luncheon guests, who said she has lived in Pound Ridge since 1975. She said she enjoyed socializing with friends she has “known for years and now sees here.”

Volunteers organized by Louise Paolicelli, senior coordinator in the Pound Ridge Recreation Department, transformed Conant Hall into a winter wonderland. Working the luncheon, they served a welcome hot lunch of chicken and pork, mashed potatoes and string beans amandine.

As in past years, the holiday luncheon was a true community effort. A group of nursery school-aged children from the Pound Ridge Community Church Play School crossed the street to Conant Hall to serenade the seniors with holiday songs. Members of the Pound Ridge Garden Club created take-home centerpieces from dried flowers. A photographer circulated through the room, taking portraits of the guests. And a raffle tempted with more than 40 donated prizes, like a $150 facial at Helen Famulare Spa Rejuvenate, or a $100 gift certificate for dinner at North Star restaurant.

“The holiday season is a time for giving and to reach out to our seniors, who often get overlooked,” said Town Board member, David Dow, who donned an apron and volunteered at the event. “I’m pretty impressed with the turnout.”

“It’s nice to see them all out, socializing and connecting with each other,” said Ms. Paolicelli of the seniors at the holiday lunch.

“And,” she confided, with a twinkle in her eye, “they like to see Santa.”

Members of the Northern Westchester Hospital staff were also on hand to offer blood pressure testing, enticing the seniors with an eyeglass cleaner party favor for participating in the free service.

“You have to twist their arms,” joked Margaret Ribaudo, who works in Community Health Outreach for the hospital.

Neighbor to Neighbor is a community-based volunteer organization that helps Pound Ridge seniors and disabled residents in time of need, working in conjunction with the town Recreation Department and Police Department. Among the many services it provides are grocery shopping assistance, Meals on Wheels, R-U-OK Call Reassurance, medical equipment loans and rides to doctor appointments. Bingo and Bridge events, and day trips to museums and nearby villages, round out some of the experiences Neighbor to Neighbor brings to Pound Ridge seniors.

Besides the holiday lunch, Neighbor to Neighbor also organizes a St. Patrick’s Day luncheon hosted by the Pound Ridge Lions Club, a Mad Hatter’s Tea, a picnic in the park with live music and dancing, and a Halloween luncheon, among other events.
