PARSIPPANY — Members from Kiwanis Clubs of Greater Dover, Rockaway, Tri-Town, Greater Parsippany, and Morristown joined forces in a heartwarming event, serving over 325 dinners to senior citizens at IHOP locations in Parsippany, Kenvil, and Cedar Knolls. The seniors savored a choice of turkey or chicken dinners, complete with all the traditional trimmings.
The event was coordinated by Frank Cahill, Past Lt. Governor of NJ District Kiwanis, Division 9, and current President of the Kiwanis Club of Tri-Town.
After enjoying their meals, seniors at the Cedar Knolls IHOP were presented with a variety of pies – Apple, Pumpkin, Blueberry, or Coconut Custard – as a complimentary gift from Arden Courts – ProMedica Memory Care Community (Whippany). Similarly, those at the Kenvil and Parsippany IHOPs received Apple, Pumpkin, and Blueberry pies, courtesy of ShopRite Parsippany.
Maria Rosario’s participation underscores the club’s dedication to hands-on community service and the personal connection members like Rosario establish with those they serve. Maria Rosario, a charter member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Dover, contributed her time and efforts in the recent senior meal event by personally distributing pies to the seniors. Her involvement added a special touch to the occasion, as she ensured each senior received a delightful dessert.
Adding to the community spirit, Key Club students from Morristown High School, Parsippany Hills High School, Parsippany High School, and Morris Knolls High Schools actively participated alongside Kiwanis members. These enthusiastic volunteers engaged with the seniors, taking orders, serving food, and ensuring a tidy dining experience, thereby creating a memorable and joyous occasion for all involved.
