Meeting Minutes - January 24th & 25th, 2017
Area 2 Meeting - January 24th
District Governor Laura Hugelmeyer and the Bedford-Armonk were the hosts for the Area 2 meeting. Representatives from Bedford-Armonk, Chappaqua, Elmsford, Mt Kisco, Northeast Westchester, Tarrytown and Yorktown Clubs were present, along PDG, Helen Lynch, PDG, Karl Milde and the Bronx Club.
After a sumptuous meal each club was asked to talk about their projects and fundraising activities. The Tarrytown club has an interesting project: a Snack Drive to supply snacks for the Ronald McDonald House at Maria Ferrari Hospital. They rely on donations and they are always running low on snacks. They are asking all clubs to join in on a monthly basis. There is a Ronald McDonald House wish list on Amazon; http://a.co/8yvo5wv. District Governor Laura spoke, commenting on the projects and urging the clubs to join with the Tarrytown club to help the Ronald McDonald House. What do you think?
Lunch Meeting - January 25th
Noreen O’Driscoll, Director of the Yorktown Nutrition Center, spoke to us about their program. They provide lunch for senior citizens at the Center and to the homebound, Monday through Friday. The suggested donation is $2.50 per person. There is transportation to and from the Center. This is funded by the government and no one is turned away. Emergency meals are also provided, in case of bad weather conditions. A Social Worker and Nutritionist visit the senior’s home and evaluate the situation. Transportation for shopping in Yorktown and medical trips to doctors is also provided. They have received grants for recreational activities, too.
The Center offers a great deal for older residents, including socialization with others. Noreen’s office number is 914-962-7447 and the email address is
