Seniors Job Bank gets financial boost

The Seniors Job Bank has received a $1,500 grant from the Rotary Club of West Hartford. According to Sheila Diamond, its executive director, “This very welcome donation has been earmarked to support enhancements to our website.”

The Seniors Job Bank, now in its 40th year, is a volunteer-driven community service organization that connects men and women over age 50 seeking work with businesses, government agencies, non-profits and households that have work to be done.

Folks of a certain age may recall television commercials in the 1970s in which the satisfied user of a product exclaimed, “I was so impressed; I bought the company.” The ads were for an electric shaver, and spokesman Victor Kiam did in fact purchase Remington Products in 1979. Del Shilkret, of Windcrest Drive, can tell a similar story.
