Bus Trip to See the Musical “Rent”

On August 7th, the Senior Citizens Foundation supported a bus trip on the Silver Streak to the North Fork Community Theater in Mattituck for about 20  local seniors to attend the musical “Rent.”  Here are a couple of photos:

Community Christmas Dinner

The  Senior Citizens Foundation of Shelter Island provided a gift of $1,000 toward the cost of the main courses that were prepared by volunteers at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.  Tom Hundgen and JoAnn Kirkland coordinated the event.  Despite torrential rain, home cooks and Island businesses delivered side dishes and cookies.  A total of 65 meals were delivered to Island seniors by 20 volunteer drivers, some dressed as Santa and others singing Christmas Carols,  on Friday, December 25th.

Here are a few photos from the event (courtesy of JoAnn Kirkland):

Silver Streak Bus Delivered to Town on 8/20/20

Our brand new bus, The Silver Streak, a 20-passenger, wheelchair-accessible, Starcraft-modified, Ford bus was delivered on Thursday, August 20th.   It arrived at the North Ferry terminal and was driven first to Town Hall and then to the Senior Activity Center.  At Town Hall, SCF President Chris Lewis presented the bus keys to Supervisor Gerry Siller.  At the Senior Center, Senior Services Director Laurie Fanelli christened the bus and all guests enjoyed an afternoon treat of strawberry shortcakes and iced tea, while staying socially distanced.  Here are some photos from the event:
