Yesterday, the Catholic Charities Pete McGuinness Senior Center in Brooklyn began their National Senior Center Month celebrations with a photo exhibition. Our members enjoyed a Seniors Through the Lens: Our Beautiful Life prepared by Program Manager Agata Skowronska. Thank you to special guest NYS Assemblywoman Emily E. Gallagher who treated our seniors to delicious sweets and wished our center a bright future. Check out our talented seniors as they proudly display their work.
Happy National Senior Center Month!
