Sixth Annual Senior Fashion Show
Councilwoman Joan Cergol served as the mistress of
ceremonies April 20, 2018 at the Sixth Annual Senior Fashion Show, held at the
Village Green Senior Center.
Councilwoman Cergol described the fashions worn by the 16 models, as each
paraded down the "runway" in the Senior Center dining room and then
through the packed crowd. The Councilwoman was wearing a Joseph Ribkoff
ensemble that she purchased at Studio East in Northport, which provided
many of fashions worn by the models. Other fashions came from the models'
The outfits carried on the theme of the show: Elegant in the Elements. As
each model displayed her outfit, Councilwoman Cergol noted which of the
four elements it represented - earth, wind, water or fire. Hair stylings
and makeup for the models was provided by students from the New York
Institute of Beauty, the oldest, licensed beauty school in New York State.
Music was provided by D.J. Bob.
The models, all members of various Town Senior Clubs and active
participants in Town senior programs, come from a variety of backgrounds,
including retired teachers, attorneys, fire department administrators,
hospital administrators, advertising executives, art and real estate, to
list a few.
"I hope the models had as much fun displaying the clothing as I did
officiating at the festivities," Councilwoman Cergol said. "They are all
such good sports, and I appreciate all of their work and the hard work of
the Senior Center staff in planning the show. I am already looking forward
to next year."
