Lenore Cibelli-Lambert, a former Staten Island resident who competed for the title of Miss Staten Island in 1976, will compete for the title of Ms. New Jersey Senior America 47 years later.
The competition, which will be held on June 1 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is open to those at least 60 years old.
The Ms. Senior America Organization holds competitions throughout the United States, and the state winners compete for the national title of Ms. Senior America. The national competition will also be held at The Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City.
Competitions are held in four categories: Philosophy of Life, Interview, Talent, and Evening Gown. Ms. Senior America’s mission is “the search for that gracious woman who has reached ‘The Age of Elegance.'”
Lenore is a member of the Miss Staten Island-Miss Richmond County Scholarship Organization’s committee in our borough.
She said, “Our young ladies work very hard in this scholarship competition, so I’m following my own advice and putting my best foot forward.” As I recently explained to some of our titleholders, you only compete against yourself.

In addition, she participates in South Shore Rotary fundraising alongside her husband Al Lambert and mother Mary Cibelli. Lenore has participated in over 25 South Shore Rotary fundraisers over the past seventeen years and has performed in Al’s “South Shore Rotary Shows.”
Lenore is a professional singer with the Al Lambert Orchestra, and she continues to perform in Staten Island, New Jersey, and Florida on occasion. She will demonstrate her singing talent on the Harrah’s stage on June 1. Singing is a significant part of her life.
Lenore stated, “I am honoured to say that the Staten Island community’s enthusiasm is humbling.” “I’m honoured that so many family and friends plan to attend, including so many from our Staten Island community.”
Tickets will be available for $25 per person at the Harrah’s box office on the day of the event, and seating is general admission. The event commences at 1:00 p.m.
