WESTFEILD – A Village of Westfield senior recently celebrated a big milestone.

Sylvia Colbey, a longtime participant of the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging’s Congregate Dining Site Program, celebrated her 90th Birthday.

The site, which is located at the YWCA on 58 South Portage St., serves a delicious, hot meal at noon every Tuesday to program participants.

Colbey along with many friends take part in learning about nutritious meal, fellowship, and recreational and educational opportunities.

“This is our third 90th Birthday Celebration in two years,” said Frankie Rothwell, Dining Site Manager. “These ladies come to the Westfield Congregate Dining Site each Tuesday to enjoy getting together, eating a good meal and playing cards. We also have nutritional education and other programming presented on a regular basis.”

Reservations for the gathering is required. For more information about the Congregate Dining Site program, call NY CONNECTS at (716) 753-4582.
