Letter: Over 60...TurnED 70 on May 28...and getting OLDER!

My last letter appeared on the same page as Stanley Greenberg’s weekly column, “Over 60...And Getting Younger.”

I don’t know how he manages that age-defying feat, but he’s apparently been defying the laws of physics, biology, gerontology and geriatrics for more than a decade !

Perhaps it’s that his initials (S.G.) stand for “Super Genetics”; because during the 10 years that I’ve personally been “over 60,” I’ve been progressively getting  older—not “younger.” Maybe Stanley Greenberg is related to the fictional movie character Benjamin Button, and if that’s the case, I’d like to inherit his column on the day he regresses backwards from age 13 to a mere 12 years and 364 days—and  is no longer officially (Judaically) a “man.” I would even be willing to honor publishing’s Truth in Advertising principle by re-titling my column “Over 70...And On The Road To Decrepitude.”

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.

The Columbus Day Parade played host a to a very special group this year. The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises’ (FREE) Players Drum Corps made history as they became the first special needs drum corps to march in the New York City Columbus Day Parade.

The group marched up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street with a red carpet performance on Fifth Avenue between 67th and 69th Streets.
