MARLBOROUGH – The Winske and Fitzpatrick families recently donated $675 to the Marlborough Senior Center in the memory of Paul Winske and Kay Fitzpatrick.

The donation, which was unanimously approved by the Marlborough City Council at a Nov. 8 meeting, is designated to be used for special programming.

Paul especially loved the bus trips, coming for a cup of coffee to enjoy and sit and chat with others as well as enjoying lunch here at the center,” wrote Trish Pope, the executive director for the Council on Aging and Senior Center in an email to the Community Advocate. “Kay especially enjoyed card games and lunch with her friends.” 

“We are honored at the Senior Center to have these wonderful families request donations to the center in their names,” Pope continued.

Pope added that both Winske and Fitzgerald were active and involved members at the Senior Center before they passed away.

In a letter submitted to the City Council before their approval of this donation, Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant thanked the various donors to the Senior Center for enhancing the quality of life for Marlborough’s senior population. 

This donation, indeed, comes after the Senior Center received a separate $10,000 donation earlier this year in memory of Paul and his wife Marie Winske.

“I would like to thank the Winske and Fitzpatrick families for thinking of the Senior Center during their time of grief,” Pope wrote in her letter to the City Council earlier this month.
