Happy Birthday Ethel Nuse!

How did the sweet lady celebrate her 95th birthday? With a fabulous surprise party that was thrown by Senior Wishes! Ethel is an original resident of United Church Manor – which opened in West Seneca 30 years ago!

There was punch, cake and plenty of celebrating with Ethel’s friends, along with her two sons and her sister. Nuse is a life-long Buffalo Sabres fan (she was a ticket-holder for over thirty years). Senior wishes presented Ethel with a Sabres sweatshirt to wear while cheering on her favorite team!

Senior Wishes’ first wish was granted in March 2014, and since then the organization has been recognizing WNY’s seniors in increasing numbers with the support of community members and corporate sponsors.  Other wishes granted have included travel to reunite family members, including a recent trip allowing a grandmother to visit her sick granddaughter; trips to sporting or cultural events; painting, photography and swim lessons; makeovers; and museum tours.
