Father’s Day was celebrated on June 8 by the Athens Senior Citizen group during their luncheon meeting in the Airport Community Center Hall. President Ted Benjamin gave the invocation before they all enjoyed a dish to pass meal.

The meeting opened at 1 p.m. with 23 members present and three guests, Arwood and Gayle Parrish, and Cindy Estelle. Ginny Malone read the treasurer and secretary reports and all approved them. They had one June Birthday, Bill Wall, and one June anniversary, Ginny and Frank Malone.  

Old news was the Valley Chorus concert on May 22 was a great show to attend this year. They received many wonderful reviews of the music selections.  Kevin Doherty directed, and Leslie Damiano was the accompanist. Watch the papers for the September start up practices for the Christmas concert.

Upcoming events are Tina Pickett’s Senior Expo on Friday, Aug. 5 at the Lynch Bustin Elementary School, located in Athens, Pa. The Expo runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Ted and Patty Benjamin provided music during the June meeting. Patty did a skit for the Fathers with the Patsy Kline song “She’s Got You,” and Ted played a video he made of Country Music.
