The Niagara County-Central Rotary Club will host the 30th annual Roger W. Andrews Senior Citizen Breakfast on Saturday, May 11, in the Niagara-Wheatfield Senior High School cafeteria.
The breakfast, beginning at 8:30 a.m., is held for all senior citizen residents (50 years and older) from the Niagara-Wheatfield area. Senior citizen attendees do not need to make reservations for this free breakfast.
The annual Senior Breakfast began in 1984 as part of the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Niagara-Wheatfield High School. Fred Barone, a long-time high school administrator, believed the senior citizens of the Niagara-Wheatfield school community should be honored for all the contributions they had made to make Niagara-Wheatfield a great community to live in and for their excellent support of the district school system.
The first Senior Citizens Breakfast was so successful that Barone and his committee decided it would be great to have an annual breakfast honoring the Niagara-Wheatfield senior citizens.
The Senior Citizens Breakfast has been an outstanding success, because it provides the opportunity for good friends to sit down and enjoy a good breakfast, socialize with friends and win many available prizes, according to organizers.
The Niagara County-Central Rotary Club has become the main sponsor of this annual event. Bill Ross and Roger Andrews, the co-chairmen of the 2013 breakfast, believe this year's event will be another great success.
The breakfast several years ago was renamed the Roger W. Andrews Senior Citizen Breakfast in honor of Rotarian Andrews who has been the main driving force behind the event during the past 30 years.
