WESTPORT, Conn. — It may be the middle of winter, but that didn't stop the Friends of the Westport Center for Senior Activities from hosting its 10th community Super Bowl tailgate party on Sunday.
The event was open to fans of all ages, and drew a solid crowd. Free food and beverages were served up at the event held at the Senior Center at 21 Imperial Ave.
The Staples High boys and girls cross country teams were honored at the event, which also featured PAL and Staples cheerleaders. There were also contests, games and prizes — including a guess the score in the big game played later in the evening.
The annual Service to Seniors Award was presented to Bunny and John Thompson, who have been involved with programs for seniors for many years in Westport.
Bunny Thompson has served as chairwoman of Westport/Weston United Way, a member of the its Aging Successfully series, and as secretary of the board of the Southwest Connecticut Commission on Aging. In 2007, she received the Elizabeth Roberts Award as the outstanding volunteer for the United Way.
John Thompson is treasurer of the Friends of the Westport Center for Senior Activities, a member of the board of ITN Coastal and a member of the Baron’s South Committee in Westport.
