LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- While each of the members of the Lewisboro Senior Adults' "Over The Hill Singers and Players" range from locals in their 50s to their 90s, all of the members are young at heart.

The group is part of the Lewisboro Senior Adults, who meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Wednesday at the South Salem Firehouse for songs, games and fun, said Director Pamela Veith. The group has more than 100 members from Somers, Lewisboro and South Salem, but they are seeking to grow and are inviting members from surrounding towns, like North Salem, Pound Ridge and Ridgefield, Conn.

The only requirements for members is that they be older than 50 and have a desire to have fun, Veith said.

"If you don't know people, you're a little intimidated but we want those people to know they're not alone and we're here," she said. "We have some members who said it was tough for them the first time they walked into the door not knowing a soul and how great it is for them now."

Many of the members of the Lewisboro Senior Adults play in the band, but most sing, Veith said.

"We have people who play instruments and are very talented but most of us sing and we're there to have fun," she said. "It's only once a week but this gathering for all of us to be together and sing songs, play games and have fun. It's really great to be a part of it because of the joy that all of our members get out of it."

Those looking to learn more can call the Parks and Recreation Office in Goldens Bridge at (914) 232-6162 or show up to any of the Wednesday meetings.
