Dinner to mark Geneva Community Lunch Program’s anniversary

Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its Geneva Community Lunch Program with a dinner April 21 at 6 p.m. in the Scandling Center on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva.

The dinner will provide an opportunity for the agency’s board of directors to recognize several individuals who were instrumental in creating and implementing the lunch program, which is a partnership between Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes and the Geneva Area Interfaith Council. The lunch program now operates out of Geneva’s First United Methodist Church, located at 340 Main St., and serves more than 1,600 meals each year to the needy in the area. Giovina Caroscio, Carl Ritz, Betty Sweetland, Joseph Felice, the Rev. James Gerling, Nancy Birdsong, Harry Burt and Marge Shanahan will be recognized during the dinner.

"We are delighted and honored to take the opportunity to recognize those dedicated individuals who long ago recognized a need in this community and worked together to create a response to that need," said Ellen Wayne, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes. "In addition to their efforts, we will take the time to acknowledge the contribution of the many volunteers who today make this program successful."

Tickets to the dinner may be purchased in advance for $30 per person. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Rhonda Zettlemoyer at Catholic Charities of the Finger Lakes at 315-789-2686, ext. 104, or e-mail her at rzettlem@dor.org.
