Meadow Hill Hosts Valentine’s Day
For Senior Residents
On Saturday, February 8, Meadow Hill GEMS students and staff in collaboration with the Town of Newburgh Recreation Center held its third annual Valentine’s luncheon for local senior citizen residents. Over 80 senior residents attended the special holiday event. Students and staff members served a festive lunch in an effort to support the school’s initiative to continue to give back to the community. They thanked Jim Williams, who is the primary benefactor for this event. Mr. Williams has generously sponsored the Meadow Hill senior citizen events for the past several years. Patricia Gida, Town of Newburgh Recreation Aide, provided a musician, decorations and a helping hand. All the Meadow Hill Gems participants and community members volunteered their time to engage in this community service event in an effort to continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
