Mayor Michael Lavorata is proud to announce the appointment of Dawn Shipsey as the Acting Director of the Rainbow Senior Center. She has served as the Assistant Director for the past four years, at which time she updated many of the antiquated procedures used in record keeping of senior events to provide more accurate tracking and efficient use of time. Trustee Joan Masterson said, “Dawn has implemented a diversified schedule of events as well as many enrichment programs, which includes speakers on a vast array of topics of interest to the senior population.”
Senior Director, Dawn Shipsey said, “My goal has been to keep the interest of everyone that participates in the activities at the center and to keep them coming back. Getting out of the house and socializing among peers adds years to life and life to years. I feel as if the seniors here are my second family, and for them I will do whatever I can to better their lives and help them enjoy themselves in this clean and safe environment the Village of Lindenhurst has provided.”
