BROADALBIN - The Broadalbin Senior Citizens met March 28, with 52 people in attendance.

The prayer was given by Kay Leggett, chaplain. "The Lord's Prayer" and the Pledge of Allegiance were recited.

The Office for the Aging luncheon followed.

President Joe McDonald presided over the short meeting. The reports of Marge Gundersen, secretary, and Phil Guadagno, treasurer, were accepted.

Carol Armitage gave the sunshine report.

Dorothy Putman won the raffle.

The program was the Betty Green Memorial Choir, led by Ed Goodemote, director. Many old songs were sung; the audience also sang along. All stood to sing the final selection, "God Bless America" accompanied by Goodemote on the church organ. There were outside guests in the audience. Refreshments were served following the program. Those who made cookies were Betty Guadagno, Gundersen, Jean Montgomery, Norma Sowle, Carol Cramer and Chambers.

Ruth Lee, trip chairman, passed out different signup sheets for various trips. She is still working on the trip list sheet. Lee can be reached at 883-5062.

Donna Chambers, program chairman, noted the next meeting will be April 11. The program will be the annual Easter hat contest. All attending should wear a hat. Prizes will be awarded for various categories. If attending this meeting and want the OFA luncheon, make reservations in advance. All seniors are welcome to attend. Bring can goods for the local food pantry.

Many of the group attended the Paradise in Hawaii senior prom put on by the OFA and the Broadalbin-Perth Middle School Honor Society. The prom was paid for by student fundraisers, donations from merchants, parents, teachers, and miscellaneous donations. The students did all the serving and the work.
