Last Sunday, Beulah joined hundreds of seniors from across the city for Unity Sports and Cultural Club’s annual Thanksgiving luncheon. After pie, she had this to say:
I use a walker, but I still get out. So why should I complain? It’s a blessing to be alive. Of course there are some days you feel upset, but I remind myself: get on your good foot. I love life, I think- that is what it is all about.
Below, some pictures from the celebration in Dorchester, which went off without a hitch thanks to dozens of volunteers.
Founded in 1968 by fifteen immigrants, Unity has grown to become one of the largest Caribbean-American non-profit organizations in the state. It now has roughly 100 members from 15 countries working to “teach, promote and enrich the civic, educational, social, cultural and economic well being of our members and the community in general.” It’s located at 10 Dunbar Avenue in Codman Square, Dorchester.
