The Friendship Senior Club of Rocky Point has been working hard to improve the lives of its community for over 30 years. Members of the club get together on a weekly basis to socialize and learn what other organizations they can become involved in.
Over the years, members have formed a relationship with Brookhaven Town Superintendent of Highways Daniel P. Losquadro and together they have been working on projects for more than a decade.
“These men and women are the type of people that bring a community together and make it strong,” Superintendent Losquadro said in a statement. Losquadro was invited to swear in the newly elected Senior Club’s board members and appointed trustees. “I am very happy to once again perform this act and see so many people I have gotten to know over the years at the same time.”
Joe Cognitore, vice president of the Senior Club and Commander of Rocky Point VFW Post 6249, said many of the members have lived in the community for their entire lives and they devote week after week trying to help maintain Rocky Point while educating the younger generations on the importance of dedicating time and energy into their neighborhoods. President of the club, Mae Dechent agreed.
“This club provides an opportunity for seniors in Brookhaven Town to get together and socialize every week,” said President Mae Dechent. “This is important because before you know it, time passes and people do not stay in touch with one another.”
Right now, the club is offering an open membership and would welcome anyone interested in joining their organization. They meet one a week, every Wednesday, at 11 a.m. at the Rocky Point VFW, located at 109 King Road in Rocky Point.
