Rotary Club of the Bronx members to meet with first female member Bea Castiglia-Catullo regularly, going to her at her new home
‘Rotary Family’ Gathers For Bea
At the first of these meetings on Tuesday, January 16 are (l.-r, standing): Michael Spierman; Teah Wulah, the club’s president-elect; Leslie Swanson; Amir Asadi; Rick Sherman; Rev. David Jolly; Ralph Scottino; Sandy Wolstein, club president and Jim Lanfranchi. Seated are Lilyanna Pekic, an always radiant Bea Castiglia-Catullo and Mary Springman.
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.
