For the fifth consecutive year, the St. Charles Professional Firefighters Association Local 3322 has prepared a pasta dinner for residents of a local senior facility. This year, the tradition brought the firefighters to Hunt Club Village where they served a full-course dinner to celebrate the holidays.
All costs are picked up by the firefighters Union and the cooking, serving and cleanup are provided by the firefighters. Both the residents and the firefighters enjoy this event and a good time was had by all. The event, which rotates annually among senior housing facilities in the City, has grown in popularity since its inception in 2008. Mayor Rogina, City Administrator Mark Koenen and Aldermen Rita Payleitner and Art Lemke joined the festivities this year, along with firefighters’ family members and the department’s administrative staff.
“The seniors’ dinner is an event that the firefighters developed. They see many of these people on medical calls and they truly care not only about their health but also about them as people. This is an exceptional way for everyone to get together in a much different environment and celebrate the holiday," said Chief Joe Schelstreet.
