Annual Seniors Dinner in Cranbrook feeds 470

The 37th Rotary/Colombo Seniors Dinner held Nov, 29, at the Cristoforo Colombo was another sellout

The 37th Annual Rotary/Colombo Seniors Dinner held Wednesday evening, Nov, 29, at the Cristoforo Colombo Hall in Cranbrook was another sellout and unqualified success.

The dinner was started 37 years ago in the basement of the Apollo Ristorante and Steak House by owner (and Rotarian) George Georgopoulos.

The highlight of the season for our senior citizens, including live music for listening and dancing after supper (courtesy Old Spice). Most notable, 315 lbs. of fresh turkey donated by Rick’s Meats and 30 dozen fresh-baked dinner rolls donated by Fort Steele Bakery.
