Bea Castiglia-Catullo, founder of R.A.I.N. Senior Services, was admitted as the first female member of the Rotary Club of the Bronx in 1987. She turned 101-year-old on November 1, 2017 and in January, because of deteriorating health, was moved to Rosary Hill in Thornwood.

Her wish is to have one meeting a month at the facility with her ‘Rotary family’ for as long as she can.
