The senior citizens have the opportunity to attend many trips during the year. The village sponsors a trip to a casino once or twice per year. Abby and Pierette are involved with the “Rivertrippers” where seniors from the quad-villages all attend. And finally, our own resident Vinny Petrucelli schedules various trips (both day trips and over-night) during the year. Some of those trips have included local dinner theaters, holiday festivals and trips to Maryland or Atlantic City. Vinny meets monthly and can be reached at (914) 693-4797.
The Village of Dobbs Ferry has a senior citizen bus which can be used daily to take residents to and from the Dobbs Ferry Fire/Police Department builing on weekdays. To request transportation, senior citizens must call (914) 231-8529 before 9:30am that day. The bus also is scheduled to transport seniors to grocery stores and local markets at least once per week. The bus is also used on occasional trips in town to intergenerational events at the schools.
