LONGMEADOW — On Aug. 21 JGS Lifecare residents, staff, volunteers and family gathered to celebrate National Senior Citizen Day, created to support, honor and show appreciation for our seniors and their achievements. That morning residents gathered in the activities room at the Leavitt Family Jewish Home to prepare and bake Blueberry Buckle from “Recipes to Remember: Janie and Friends Cook For You,” a cookbook by Janie Booth, a past resident of the Home, former Springfield JCC staffer and a well-known caterer. Later everyone gathered in the Gloth Family Auditorium to enjoy the yummy treat.
