For the best seniors' lunch in town, run, don't walk, to the Assistance League of Glendale on Harvard Street. On the second Wednesday of each month, these intrepid volunteers lay out a gourmet lunch for a tiny $2 donation per person. Lunch on Nov. 10 was a Thanksgiving menu with all the trimmings. Word spread after senior after senior packed the room, big enough for more than 70 hungry guests.
Assistance League members were front and center, busy in their various roles. Reservations hostess Ruth Moore manned the check-in table. Mary Margaret Smith was on the go behind the scenes as chairwoman of the event (known as the Senior Neighborhood Fellowship). So was Pat DiGennaro as chairwoman of the day.
The beneficiaries of the league largess were the luncheon guests. Glendale resident Bob Hughart has never missed a lunch for 11 years. He was accompanied by wife Yolanda Hughart. Margie Uruski, who lives just across the street, walks right over. More Glendale regulars included Karna Meese, Irene Guthrie and Ruth Lyons.
