HOLLEY – Over 121 people attended the Tenth Annual Senior Citizen Appreciation Breakfast on May 7 in the Holley Elementary Café. The buffet breakfast was provided by Personal Touch, who supplies the food to both the Holley Elementary and Middle School/High School cafeterias.

Elementary students created placemats for each table setting. Art teacher Brandi Zavitz and some of her students created ceramic centerpieces for each table. The senior citizens were served by student volunteers from the MS/HS.

Kindergarten, elementary and senior high singers provided the entertainment during the breakfast. They sang everything from the Beatles “Love Me Do” to a song in Swahili. The Elementary Chorus also sang “America Medley” to honor the military servicemen and women.

After the breakfast, senior citizens were invited to have their blood pressure checked by a school nurse, visit a booth sponsored by the Orleans County Office of the Aging and tour the Family Fitness Center. They also had a chance to sign up for a Gold Card membership, which offers any senior citizen age 60 or older free attendance at any school-sponsored event.

Next year’s Senior Citizen Appreciation Breakfast will be held on May 5, 2016.
