Mayor Tony Vauss and the Irvington Chamber of Commerce hosted more than 150 Irvington seniors for a luncheon at the Irvington Senior Citizen Center. The Mayor and Councilwoman Sandra Jones gave away a turkey, chicken, or cornish hen to each of the attendees to take home.

“Seniors are an important part of our community and a focus of my administration.” said Mayor Vauss. “It was a pleasure watching them enjoy their meals and receive their turkeys and chickens to take home. I stayed the entire time and socialized with them.”

The president of the Irvington Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Thomas Panitch, greeted the seniors. Girls Scouts from Irvington and some of their leaders, helped pass out the food, as did volunteers from the Chamber.

“It is a blessing to see so many seniors eating and laughing. It is the goal of the Mayor and Division on Senior Citizens, to provide days and activities like this one, where our elders can enjoy themselves and be healthy,” said Dr. Stephanie R. Bush-Baskette, Director of Health for the Township. The Division    on Senior Services is part of the Department of Health.
