The joint was jumping with music provided by Vintage Bliss, the tables and walls were covered with red and purple hearts, and there was a buffet for over 100 seniors who attended the Lynbrook Senior Citzen's Club Centennial Valentine's Day Dance and Lunch at the Lynbrook Recreation Center this past Thursday.
The annual event — coined "centennial" in recognition of Lynbrook's 100th anniversary — was sponsored by , The Atria Tanglewood, attended by Lynbrook Mayor Bill Hendrick and the village board, and included food, live music, decorations, and raffles.
Vincent Riccaro — a Frank Sinatra look-a-like — and his partner, Susan LoFaso of Vintage Bliss, sang a variety of tunes, including "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "New York, New York," and ending with "God Bless America."
"It was a wonderful day, everything was beautiful from the food, people, music. It is amazing what they do for the seniors," said Marie Rangano, one of the raffle winners. " When asked if she had a valentine at the Dance and Luncheon, she added, "I wish I had one, but I will be my own valentine."
Constance Howard, who has been a resident of Lynbrook for over 60 years, said of the event, "It was delightful."
