Gerry Senior Citizens Have Thanksgiving Meal

Pat Cook dressed as the late singer Patsy Cline sang many of her hit songs at the Gerry Senior Citizens’ Thanksgiving Dinner.

GERRY — The Rodeo City Senior Citizens met at the United Methodist Church in Gerry for their Thanksgiving dinner. President Ann Hellman welcomed all. Pastor Don Moore of the Ellington Baptist Church prepared three turkey breasts, and those attending added to the meal to make a fine dinner. Moore gave the blessing prior to the meal. Jan Miller was in charge of the main food table. Peg Harrison is the secretary of the organization, and Gayle McKinney is the treasurer. Ellen Yager was recognized for her recent birthday.

Following the meal, Stockton and Cassadaga Historian John Sipos recognized the veterans. Sipos talked about the ending of World War I with the signing of the treaty in France on November 11, 1918. The Armistice was in effect at 11 a.m. Armistice Day was changed to Veterans’ Day by President Eisenhower in 1954 to include all veterans in all wars and so named Veterans Day. Sherry Shay provided a pen for all veterans with a thank you imprinted on them.

George and Pat Cook provided music for the event.

The next gathering will be held at the Falcon’s Nest in Falconer on Friday, Dec. 16 at noon with a catered meal. Reservations for the meal can be made by calling 716-490-8191.
