PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Sam Acerbo and Bill Malin may not be getting a free lunch everyday, but they have something that's close at the Port Chester Senior Community Center ."I just come here to eat," said Rye resident Bill Malin, who paid the suggested donation of $1.50 for a slice of turkey, sweet potatoes, canned peaches and milk.The Port Chester Senior Center is open to all residents of Westchester County and provides lunch six days a week Monday through Saturday year-round.
"It's a good time to sit and talk with people," said Port Chester resident Acerbo, who retired last year from teaching chemistry at Iona College .There are many activities at the center, but Acerbo and Malin both like to keep busy on their own. Malin retired from his job as a social work in New York City, but now makes deliveries for Rye Beach Pharmacy ."It's my retirement job," said Malin.Acerbo has taught chemistry for over 50 years, but is hitting the books now that his son is studying for a doctorate in the same field."I'm studying all over again," said Acerbo. "It's wonderful."Acerbo and Malin don't have many other opportunities to talk with each other, so it's nice to have a place where they can sit down to a meal and have a consversation.
