Sunshine Luncheon at Pittsford church celebrates 40 years of joy for seniors
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - It is a tradition going 40 years strong.
The St. Louis Church in Pittsford celebrated 40 years of bringing sunshine into the lives of senior citizens on Thursday.
The idea for the Sunshine Luncheon came from a parishoner at St. Louis whose goal was to bring area nursing home residents together.
"[We are] seeing it as a way to reach out to the community," Father Robert Ring said, "And often times people who have been part of the parish but are no longer to come on a weekend, it helps them feel like they're still involved and still connected to the parish."
Fifth grade students helped with the luncheon and created all of the artwork used to decorate the space.
