Roosevelt Island Carter Burden Senior Center Volunteer Recognition Celebration Thursday June 1 - Covello Dancers Perform June 2 At Roosevelt Island Senior Center Too

Roosevelt Island Senior Center Carter Burden Program Outreach Director Hallie Shapiro reports:


Senior Week Volunteer Recognition Celebration w/ Live Jazz Performance to follow! 12:30pm. Everyone welcome – come help us honor all of our special volunteers – and if you’re one of them, get ready to be celebrated!!!

FRIDAY, 6/2:

The one and only, super famous, Covello Dancers will perform at 1:30pm. They hail from one of our sister senior centers, Leonard Covello in East Harlem. Please come join the fun! We promise your face will hurt from smiling…in a good way of course J

Ms Shapiro adds:
I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you that my last day here at the Senior Center is next Friday, 6/2. It has been a pleasure meeting and getting to know so many of you. My goal as Director of Outreach & Community Engagement has been to help cultivate and grow the programming and services offered here, as well as to create a welcoming and engaging environment for the community. I believe we have begun to accomplish this, in collaboration with all of you. And of course, there’s always more work ahead to continue to improve! On that note, please give a warm welcome when you see Samantha Romero, who will take over the position in the coming weeks. I’m sure she will bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the role!

Wishing everyone the absolute best in life and health – and, perhaps our paths will cross again one day!
Ms Shapiro will be missed at the Roosevelt Island Senior Center.
