Picnic Table Use to be Made Easier for Elderly

Elderly and handicapped visitors to Westport’s Compo Beach and Longshore Club Park this summer will have an easier time sitting at picnic tables, thanks to a donation from the children of a longtime Westporter frustrated by the difficulty in using the tables as she got older.

The donation was formally accepted today at a meeting of the Board of Selectmen.

The family of Barbara (Bobby) K. Saipe, a former member of the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) who was active in many community organizations as a six-decade town resident, made the $6,000 donation. She died Feb. 14, 2013 at age 87. (See obituary here)

“As she got older, one of her biggest concerns was getting into the picnic table at the beach,” daughter Nancy Saipe told the board. “And she used the beach 12 months a year.”
