MONDAY, DECEMBER 20: Bermuda’s senior citizens were treated to Christmas luncheon courtesy of the Fairmont Southampton today.

More than 400 seniors filled the Poinciana Ballroom, most dressed in red for the holiday season.

They dined on pumpkin soup, turkey with the trimmings and dessert.

Fairmont along with the Bermuda Senior Islanders Centre at Admiralty House and the Island Wide Social Committee hosted the event.

Norman Mastalir, Managing Director of Fairmont Bermuda said: “It’s an honour. It was an idea or Sir John Swan and Lady Swan 26 years ago.

“It’s a kick-off to Christmas. We get 400 to 450 seniors who come here and enjoy a nice lunch and some entertainment.”

Glamorous Granny of the Year Dorothy Morrissey said she enjoyed the festivities.

“I’m doing great. I’m always upbeat. I love people.”

Fred Hassell of the Bermuda Senior Islanders Centre said: “Everyone who had the pleasure of attending today’s party had a wonderful time.

“On behalf of the seniors of Bermuda, I would like to thank the Fairmont Southampton for their generosity and for sharing the Christmas spirit with Bermuda’s seniors.

“Today was a very special day for these people and the events really brought the magic of Christmas alive.”
