YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The St. Patrick’s School fifth-grade class hosted its annual Senior Tea on Wednesday, Oct. 26. The event welcomed more than 150 seniors from a variety of neighborhoods and senior facilities, such as Jefferson Village, Beaver Ridge, Drum Hill Residence and Yorktown Senior Center. The students also wrote stories about their “Golden Guests,” who would be enjoying the tea, such as grandparents, relatives and neighbors.

Students asked several guests their thoughts of the Senior Tea. First-time guest Jane Ryan was asked what the Senior Tea meant to her, she replied, “It’s a wonderful idea and great way to make older people happy!” Another Golden Guest said “the service was delightful, the food is good and service with a smile!” The children are always excited to partake in this large community service project, which has become a tradition at St. Patrick’s School.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
