Christmas holiday celebration

On Wednesday, Dec. 19, the Wilton Career Firefighters Local 2233 will serve a complimentary turkey dinner with all the trimmings to seniors at the weekly Ogden House luncheon. This wonderful tradition began in 1985 as a way for the firefighters to thank seniors for their years of support. Volunteers from Our Lady of Fatima Church, under the direction of Ed Raposa, will prepare the meal. Lunch is served at noon; guests are encouraged to come early to socialize. The Middlebrook Singers and Middlemen under the direction of Susan Kelly and Janet Nobles, as well as the Flute Choir conducted by Jennifer Ginsberg, will provide entertainment. Middlebrook’s Student Council, coordinated by Bill Gerundo, will treat the participants to homemade delights. Reservations: 203-834-6240.

The concluding session takes place on Thursday, Dec. 13, at 2 p.m. in the senior center lounge. Participants sit in chairs (straight back or sofa style) for the gathering. Fee: $5 per class
