Volunteer's Day Award Lunch

Every year, Dorchester Senior Citizen's Center celebrates Volunteer's Day with a big lunch.

This year, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz visited. We were very excited to have him at our center. Galina, our activities coordinator, made sure to have her picture taken with the Borough President, which we have posted here on our blog.

Next, staffer Marilyn Parker presented each volunteer with a certificate and a Dorchester cap.  JoAnne Biswakarma, our director, gave a speech, mentioning, "Our volunteers ARE Dorchester. We cannot work without you." Over 60 members received certificates!

Throughout the year, many of our members help us run the center. Today is the day that we celebrate their efforts. We are glad that our special lunch was a success!
