State Representative Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) and State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump recently hosted the Lawrence Senior Center for a visit at the Massachusetts State House.
About 50 Lawrence seniors participated in the visit, as they toured the State House and joined DiZoglio and fellow Lawrence legislators for a meet-and-greet over coffee and pastries.
DiZoglio brought the seniors into the House Chamber where they sat in the seats of legislators as the Representative explained how ideas become laws and encouraged them to be actively involved in the democratic process. Auditor Bump joined DiZoglio and the seniors in the Chamber to discuss the role her office plays in the Commonwealth.
Joining DiZoglio and Bump to welcome the seniors were State Senator Barbara L’Italien (D-Andover) and State Representatives Frank A. Moran (D-Lawrence) and Marcos A. Devers (D-Lawrence).
“I have strived during my time as State Representative for the 14th Essex District to host events like these that bring our wonderful seniors together,” said DiZoglio. “I believe it is immensely important that we keep our older adults independent, socially engaged and active and I intend to sponsor many more gatherings over the months and years to come.”
