Holiday Breakfast & Concert Anne Hutchinson Student Council Community Service Club

Anne Hutchinson students spread the spirit of the season as they welcomed senior citizens to their annual Holiday Breakfast.

On Friday, December 7th, members of the Community Service Club wore festive colors, greeted the senior citizens and then brought their guests to their seats.

Fifth-grade teacher Dave O’Neil took his place behind the grill making pancakes. The students served a hearty breakfast of sausage, fresh fruit and so many more tasty treats to approximately 80 seniors.

The event has been taking place longer than most can remember. Druscilla Francis never wants to miss this special day. “It is nice to see the young people. They can learn how to meet the needs of their families as they grow older.” Like a reindeer on a mission, Luke Ambrogio, who wore his reindeer ears, served many of the guests. “I like to interact with people. They are lively and chipper. It really makes me feel happy that I am actually helping somebody.” Natalie Pullum enjoyed meeting the seniors, “It makes feel good and I get to talk to them. It makes me feel happy.”

After serving breakfast, The Anne Hutchinson Orchestra performed songs of the season with a special solo performance by Rino Nakamura. The Japanese Activity Club performed two favorites – Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Old McDonald had a Farm. The chorus then filled the air with their melodious voices singing traditional songs for Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza before Irish Step Dancers from The Hendry School of Dance showed their talents.

Community Service Club advisors Bobbi Iacovelli and Felicia Maldari watched proudly as the students, faculty members and volunteers worked in unison. ”It is beautiful,” said Maldari. “For some of the seniors, this is the only holiday event they attend.” As the crowd took part in a holiday sing-a-long – some special guests entered the cafeteria.

Happy Holidays to all!!
