About 100 seniors from the 80th Assembly District stopped by Mastero's Caterers today to partake in the fun and festivities that was being provided by Assemblyman Gjonaj. Tables were set up with many different games to play from Bridge to Yatzee. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Senator Jeff Klein also stopped by to see the seniors, and BP Diaz even partook in a game of Connect Four with one of the seniors.
