The Seniors Job Bank celebrated 40 years of service to the greater Hartford region with a gala gathering on Sept. 24. The non-profit, volunteer driven organization connects men and women over 50 who want to work with businesses, government agencies, and households that need workers.

SJB president Dennis Carrithers thanked SJB staff and volunteer Board members for contributing their time and talent to SJB’s operations, and in particular, executive director Sheila Diamond and Gail Crockett, chairperson of the committee that planned the reception. He offered special recognition of Pat Newton, Jim Doran and Bob Cave, all of whom were instrumental in the creation, development and success of the organization through its history.

The Seniors Job Bank maintains a roster of approximately 650 background-checked job seekers, representing about 150 discrete skills and abilities, blue and white collar. While all job seekers are at least 50 years old, clients may be of any age.
