Seniors First Trip

Seniors First Trip
Originally uploaded by Sally Ann.
The Lindley-Presho Senior Citizen's took their first trip to the Ray Evens Seneca Theatre to see Tom Netherton of the Lawrence Welk Show and gamble, yes, that's right, gamble at the Seneca Allegany Casino in Salamanca, New York. The 36 seniors who went on the trip said the trip was great. Tom Netherton was fantastic and no one lost their shirts to the one armed bandits. In fact, Florence Haar, immediately upon arrival won $500. Rather than press her luck, Florence refused to play anymore and decided to wait out the trip in the lobby to secure her winnings. Seniors are always sensible. Sharon Clark won $200, Helen Pease won $60 and Janette Miller won $45. Peggy Miller said no one was a big loser.

The Seniors also enjoyed an "all you can eat buffet" at the Casino.

You all know the saying: What happens in Salamanca stays in Salamanca.

The Seniors next trip will be June 17 to Lockport, NY to take a narrated cruise- "Fifteen Miles With Sal on the Erie Canal." They will travel under lift bridges, see the "Flight of Five" and experience the engineering marvel of the 19th century as they "lock through" the rock cut of the Niagara Escarpment. They will also enjoy a buffet luncheon at Lockport's Canalside and attend a nostalgic musical performance by Ron and Nancy OneSong in the Parlor Theater at the Medina Stone Farm.
