Letter to the Editor of "Kiwanis Club 'Senior Outing' to Salem Willows a Success"

E.B. Kiwanis Club ‘Senior Outing’ to Salem Willows a Success

To the Editor:

The Kiwanis Club of East Boston recently hosted 110 local residents on our annual “Senior Outing to Salem Willows.” The Kiwanis Club volunteers helped the Seniors board two buses at the East Boston Social Centers, and then throughout the day, the seniors were treated to fresh air and ocean breezes along the Salem waterfront. They also enjoyed coffee and muffins, a free lunch, a 90-minute guided boat tour around Salem and Marblehead harbors, and topping off the day with ice cream.

The Senior Outing was a great success, thanks to the many Kiwanis Club members who volunteered their time and energy. Also helping to make the outing a success were the following individuals and businesses:
East Boston Savings Bank, East Boston Savings Bank President Deborah Jackson and Chairman Dick Gavengano, Carlo’s Catering, Dunkin’ Donuts, Shaw’s Supermarket, Rino’s Restaurant, John Lynds and the East Boston Times, Muffin Town, Demoulas’ Marketbasket, First Priority Bank, photographer Ross Rosario, the East Boston Foundation, Senator Anthony Petruccelli, Representative Carol Basile, and City Councilor Sal LaMattina.

Thank you all for your assistance and your support of this important community event.


Ed Coletta
President, East Boston Kiwanis Club
