West Haven Senior Center welcomes back members

West Haven Senior Center Reopens With Luncheon 008 II (Small)

WEST HAVEN, Aug. 26, 2021 — (Pictured): Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, left, and new Elderly Services Director Alyssa Maddern welcome members back to the West Haven Senior Center during a luncheon at 201 Noble St. on Thursday, Aug. 26.

Rossi hosted the catered lunch for city residents 65 and older to celebrate the reopening of the center, which had been closed for more than a year due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Rossi was joined by Executive Assistant Louis P. Esposito Jr. and Human Resources Commissioner Beth A. Sabo, who oversees the Department of Elderly Services, which operates the center.

The two-hour event gave the 70 attendees an opportunity to socialize and meet Maddern. Members wore face masks, a senior center policy, while mingling with one another, only pulling masks down to eat or drink.

The food was provided by the Gateway Community College culinary arts and professional bakers programs.

Each member received a West Haven centennial-emblazoned tote bag containing a bottle of bug spray, a face mask and a bottle of hand sanitizer from the Health Department, along with a centennial sticker, a lanyard and a stylus pen from the center.
