Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty and Other Elected Officials Volunteer at Senior Party

Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty volunteered his services at the Lyons-McCook Senior Party held on December 9th.

Along with State Representative Silvana Tabares and Cook County Judge Edward Maloney, Mayor Getty welcomed over 300 local seniors at the Lyons Community Room at the Village Hall.

Local seniors were excited to attend the event and celebrate the holiday season.  Lyons resident Vic Zynda expressed his gratitude to Mayor Getty.

“Mayor Getty really cares about providing for the seniors in his community and it shows,” said Zynda. “My friends and I wait for this party all year.”

During dinner Mayor Getty spoke to the seniors about a few of his goals for the residents.

“These last four years I have changed the village’s direction and put the residents first,” said Mayor Getty.  “I want to continue to provide the residents of Lyons the best services the village has to offer.”

Representative Tabares and Judge Maloney also addressed the seniors, both thanking them for their strong support during the recent election.

The senior Christmas party was sponsored by the Lyons-McCook Business Association. The party included a traditional turkey dinner, frozen custard donated by the local Lyons Culvers restaurant, music, an Elvis impersonator and a visit from Santa Clause.

“The LMBA is very proud to sponsor this event and are honored to have a chance to give back to the community who support the local businesses all year long,” said LMBA Director Eddie Wilkowski.

The LMBA has been sponsoring the senior Christmas party for the past four years. More than 40 local residents and members of the business community came out to volunteer for the event.
