Suffolk Legislator Tom Donnelly recently helped pay tribute to a Deer Park senior citizen, father and grandfather at the Town of Babylon Spangle Drive Senior Center Annual Fathers’ Day Celebration.
Joining Legislator Donnelly honoring 2019 Spangle Drive Father of the Year Joe De Lora, 93, at the June 14 event were Babylon Town Councilman Terry McSweeney, a representative from the Long Island office of New York State Attorney Letitia James and Joe De Lora’s children - Joe Jr. and Rosalie. The event was attended by many senior citizen members of the center who enjoyed the good food, dancing and games.
“I always appreciate the opportunity to visit the Spangle Drive Senior Center and spend time with our local seniors as they enjoy all of the wonderful services and activities provided,” said Legislator Donnelly. “I would like to thank Center Director Carolyn Epifane and her entire staff for the superb job they do in planning and executing a myriad of programs that keep our seniors engaged and active. Congratulations to Mr. De Lora on this well-deserved recognition and a continued Happy Father’s Day to all!”
