It’s Celebrating Seniors Week in Oak Park, River Forest & Forest Park—and no, we’re not referring to high school seniors, but older adults. One of my favorite “older adults”–and he’s going to administer a noogie for my repeating the term–is fellow D200 Board Member Fred Arkin.
Fred is one of Celebrating Seniors’ youngest “60 Over 60” honorees this year–a deserved recognition of his longtime positive community involvement, which includes serving as a volunteer coach for OPRF’s nationally renowned wrestling program. You can learn more about Fred in this 2015 Q & A with the Wednesday Journal of Oak Park and River Forest.
Last week, he was among those celebrated at The Nineteenth Century Club in Oak Park. Congratulations also to OPRF Chief Information Officer (and “60 Over 60” honoree) Michael Carioscio.
