Senior Citizens Enjoy a Luncheon at the HHS!
Posted on 11/08/2019

The Hicksville community’s senior citizens were once again honored with an afternoon filled with food, fun and plenty of entertainment provided by the district’s fine arts department. Hicksville High School hosted the district’s 28th annual Fall Senior Citizen Luncheon on Nov. 8.

Members of the school’s National Honor Society volunteered to serve the hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour and a three-course meal of salad, an entrée of choice and dessert. The guests of honor were treated to special performances by Hicksville High School’s award-winning marching band, led by first-year director Kerri Barnett. Performances were also given by the high school string ensemble under the direction of Jennifer Weiss, vocal soloists Sierra Hall, Rachel Samuel and Jade Vila as well as members of the theater department, who gave a preview of their production of “Almost Maine.”

Director of Fine Arts Phil Grusenmeyer served as emcee for the event. Superintendent of Schools Marianne Litzman welcomed the seniors and thanked them for their ongoing support and interest in the district and its students. Litzman, Grusenmeyer, Hicksville High School Principal Ray Williams and other administrators mingled with their honored guests between courses.

Hicksville High School’s gymnasium was decorated beautifully as a grand ballroom for the luncheon and also featured artwork and table centerpieces created by students.

The Fall Senior Citizen Luncheon continues to be a fun, intergenerational tradition that brings students and their elders together for an afternoon of feasting, fine arts and conversation. The school also hosts a Senior Citizen Prom in the spring.
