This History of This Dinner
The Baldwinsville Rotary Club has been serving an annual meal to senior citizens in our community for many years. The project started as a holiday meal with the event hosted each December. The club partnered with PEACE, Inc. to put on a full turkey dinner, including pumpkin pie, that was served to a couple hundred seniors at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton church. Members would also deliver meals to the homebound. Unfortunately, due to the weather in CNY that time of year, the event had to be cancelled a couple of years. We also realized that there are already a lot of extra resources available in the community around the holidays. So the club decided to switch it up, moving the event to July and transforming the meal to a picnic menu. The event is a little smaller now and is held at Canton Woods Senior Center. Volunteers grill outside, wait on the seniors with classic BBQ sides, draw for door prizes and include fun entertainment that puts a smile on everyone's face.  This is one of the most rewarding, hands-on projects the club does and all members look forward to helping out!
