Council Members Robert Bicocchi and Beth Dell presented the Westwood Senior Fellowship with a donation of $500.00 at their October 2016 meeting. The Council Members held a "Meet the Candidates" night and pledged all donations from that event to the local organization.
The Westwood Senior Fellowship organizes events and activities for Borough residents age 55+. Beth and Rob stated “the Fellowship is a vital part of the fabric of our community. It provides our senior residents with informative lunch gatherings, cultural trips, and a social outlet.”
Beth and Rob decided to act after speaking with Fellowship members who were concerned that limited funding, coupled with increased costs, would affect their programming. Beth Dell stated, “after learning more about the Fellowship programs and their financial challenges, we knew we had to help. Rob and I didn’t have to think twice about doing this. We hope to make it a yearly event!”
