HOBOKEN — The office of Senate Majority Leader Bernard F. Kenny Jr. today announced that it had served 300 senior citizens at the 14th Annual Columbus Day Senior Luncheon held at the Hoboken Elks Lodge on Washington Street on Wednesday, Oct. 19th.
Senator Kenny’s Chief of Staff, Kathy Perry-Cardino, said Senator Kenny personally served up the luncheon fare of antipasto, macaroni and sausuge along with cannolis for dessert. The Senate Majority Leader received help serving the lunches from Hoboken Mayor and Luncheon Co-Host Dave Roberts while Ms. Cardino and Legislative Assistant Susan Flynn staffed the kitchen.
“It’s all about having a good time for the seniors and everybody had fun,” said Ms. Perry-Cardino.
Luncheon guests of Senator Kenny included residents of the various senior citizen buildings throughout Hoboken.
A highlight of the luncheon was a Senate resolution from Senator Kenny presented to Hoboken native Orlando Addeo who was feted for his longtime service to the community, his record as a combat veteran of World War II and his 25 years as commissioner and chairman of the Hoboken Housing Authority.
