Special to the Express
Halifax seniors were treated to a delicious corned beef and cabbage lunch at Nonnie’s Restaurant in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Even though it was a week after the holiday, the seniors donned green. The luncheon was sponsored by the Halifax Council on Aging. Nonnie’s generously hosted the event at their restaurant serving up generous portions of the traditional St. Patrick’s Day fixings. A grant approved by the the Halifax and Massachusetts Culture Councils funded popular entertainer Matt York.
The highlight of the luncheon was honoring Jo Schofield for her two decades of dedicated volunteer service to the Halifax COA. Jo has served on the COA Board and continues to volunteer for the COA. Jo was surprised by the tributes. Citations from the State House of Representative arranged by Representative Josh Cutler and a State Senate Citation presented by Senator Mike Brady, were presented to Jo. Senator Brady also honored Jo Schofield with a song.
