Golda Meir's fashion show proves that beauty is truly ageless!
Beauty is truly ageless. Golda residents used their chairs to create a runway so that the models -- 15 or so of their neighbors -- could gracefully show off their elegant outfits. The clothes had special significance including Lois Hou's, which was the traditional garb of a bridegroom's mother. The models were radiant. Sally Lakin, age 103, chose a black sparkly dress that she had worn to her great-granddaughter's wedding. Undeterred by her wheelchair, Sally was guided by her granddaughter, offering smiles and waves as well-wishers applauded and cheered.
The successful event was covered by Boston.com and Newton PATCH. Check out photos and story here. The fashion show, organized fully by Golda residents under the leadership of Shirley Goldsmith and Natalie Chase, included a raffle to raise funds for transportation vouchers for residents
