Senior Citizens and Students Kick Off the Holiday Season
The Island Park Public Schools is proud to have an ongoing community partnership that involves many annual events. Among them are senior citizen brunch gatherings that are sponsored by the Island Park Recreation Department and take place twice per school year. On Dec. 6, the district welcomed senior citizens into the Lincoln Orens Middle School cafeteria for a warm and festive morning.
Members of the administration and staff attended the event and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Rosmarie Bovino greeted the guests. Food Service manager Dena DeBari and Recreation Department supervisor Keith Manginelli served an array of delicious food, and eighth grade chorus and orchestra musicians performed holiday songs. Tranportation Department bus driver, Maryann Russo, delivered guests from Senior Housing to the District and back. It was a cheerful setting that celebrated the sense of family in Island Park.
