Mass seniors: Keep your hands off our doughnuts

 

 

Posted: Today at 3:14 p.m.

ASHBURNHAM, Mass. - Senior citizens in a Massachusetts community told a town official to keep his hands off their doughnuts. Francis "Bill" Johnson, chairman of Ashburnham's advisory board, said at a Council on Aging meeting this week that spending money on doughnuts and pastries for the Senior Center's morning coffee club encourages unhealthy eating habits in a population that already has health issues.

Council on Aging board member Lorna Fields said Johnson "overstepped his boundaries."

She said many seniors won't eat "carrot sticks and stuff" and that healthier items, including grapes and cheese, are available.

Betty Bushee, 67, a Senior Center regular, told The Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that no one has the right to tell seniors what to eat.

Good for them. It makes no sense to go your whole life doing what you want to do and then be told what to do later on in life. I'd rather live 5 less years doing what I wanted to do rather than live an extra 5 where I couldn't do what I wanted to.
