14th Annual Seniors American Brunch

The Borough of Roselle Park is celebrating its 14th Annual Seniors American Brunch on Friday, April 26, 2019, from 12:00 p.m.to 3:00 p.m. at the Casano Community Center.

The “Seniors American Brunch” is an opportunity to shine a light on many important issues and trends. More than ever before, older Americans are working longer, trying new things, and engaging in their communities. They are taking charge, striving for wellness, focusing on independence, and advocating for themselves and others. They expect to continue to live their lives to the fullest, and they are insisting on changes that make that possible. This event is a perfect occasion to recognize and celebrate what getting older looks like today.

The “Seniors American Brunch” is FREE and will feature live entertainment by the James Dean Orchestras who will sing, make you dance, and laugh. Brunch will be served during the event. The Casano Community Center is located at 314 Chestnut Street, Roselle Park, NJ 07204.

Mayor Sig and the Borough Council invites seniors 55 and over to join in the festivities!

After 31 years of serving his country, he left the service as E-7 in 1999 and entered into the IRR (Inactive Ready Reserve.)

Upon returning, Mr. Cook became a Pass Commander and a life member with American Legion Post No. 60 of Roselle Park, and with the Downtown Veterans Association of Elizabeth. He is also a member of VFW 7363 of Clark, New Jersey.
