Albion students treat senior citizens to fun and food
ALBION – It’s an annual tradition at Albion High School: Senior Citizens are welcomed to the gym and cafeteria for food and games for “Senior Citizen Day.”
The High School Student Council today hosted about 125 senior citizens. It’s an annual tradition that goes back to the 1970s. The Student Council picks a theme for the event and decorates the gym for the occasion. Today’s theme was “Welcome to the Jungle.”
About 40 students helped put on the program, which included music, art work and many games.
“The kids love this,” said Emily Wemmer, Student Council advisor. “It’s one of their favorite events of the year.”
