Celebrating 90 (plus or minus)!
A party for the island’s nonagenarians, inspired by Betty Fitzpatrick and Shirley Kessler, was held at Kimberly’s Restaurant on Sunday, Feb. 9. The celebration is now sponsored by the Senior Advisory Committee. According to town records, Block Island has approximately 25 seniors in their 90s, and seven residents who are 89 years old and will celebrate next year.
Happy Birthday! — Senior Advisory Committee Chair Sandra Kelly.
