Senior Citizens Welcomed at Cherry Avenue Annual Brunch
In December, Cherry Avenue elementary students once again hosted their Annual Brunch for select residents from The Arbors of Bohemia and Sunrise Village, as well as senior citizens from the West Sayville area. Welcomed at the door by helpful fifth-grade students each guest was escorted to decorated tables in the Cafeteria for a morning meal of eggs, assorted pastries, bagels and coffee. In addition to Principal Dr. Lisa Ihne’s cheerful greetings, the brunch bunch was treated to a musical presentation provided by the Fifth-grade chorus.
The Brunch, an idea developed by the Cherry Avenue Site-Based committee, is always a tremendous success for everyone involved. The students who volunteer to setup, socialize, or clean up, also practice their social skills and show great respect for the senior citizens they meet; in turn, the local residents truly enjoy getting acquainted with the marvelous elementary students.
Special mention goes to the wonderful students of the BOCES culinary department (under the direction of Chef Barry Rosenthal) for their efforts in preparing and serving the delicious breakfast.
