GHS treats area senior citizens to luncheon

GREENVILLE — Close to 185 people attended Tuesday’s Senior Citizens Day luncheon at Greenville High School.

The event was co-sponsored by Greenville High School Student Council/Varsity G and Brookdale®Greenville.

Carol Paul, who coordinated the event, said this is the biggest annual luncheon that’s been held so far. She has been doing coordinating it the past six or seven years.

“We invited Darke County seniors to join us at Greenville for a luncheon celebrating Senior Citizens Day,” said Paul.

Those in attendance had the opportunity to hear various groups at the school — a performance by the Greenville Learning Center under the direction of Amy Schoen; performance by the Wavaires directed by Chelsea Whirledge; and performances by the high school orchestra and Jazz Scene, both directed by JR Price — as well as play games and enjoy door prizes, in addition to eating a catered lunch provided by Clare Bridge Sterling House.

The Naval Junior Reserves Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) took part in the program in the beginning with its Color Guard and Exhibition Drill with the singing of the National Anthem.

Senior boys provided a valet and umbrella service for those who wanted them, and Spirit Medical Transport provided complimentary transportation to and from the event.
