The Holley Central School District will host its ninth annual Senior Citizen Appreciation Breakfast on Thursday, May 1 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. in the Elementary School cafeteria. Holley residents ages 55 and older are welcome to come. This is a free breakfast, however, reservations are required. Anyone interested in attending are asked to contact Connie Nenni in the District Office at (585) 638-6318, ext. 2003 by Monday, April 21. Transportation is available. Anyone needing transportation should make arrangements when making their reservation.
When Holley Central began the tradition of honoring senior citizens, 25 guests attended the breakfast. Last year, more than 125 senior citizens came to enjoy an appreciation breakfast. The meal is prepared by Holley’s cafeteria staff. High school and elementary chorus groups, as well as our kindergarten students, provide musical entertainment for our guests. Members of the high school Student Council also take part in this event by serving and visiting with guests. At the conclusion of the breakfast, as our guests are leaving the cafeteria, they are presented with a long stem rose by our student council members. Our health services staff members will be available to provide free blood pressure screenings if attendees are interested.
In 1963, President John F. Kennedy issued a presidential proclamation designating the month of May as Senior Citizens Month and encouraged the nation to pay tribute in some way to older citizens of our country.
“This is our way of thanking our older Americans for all that they have done and continue to do for our nation, towns and villages, and especially for the students of our school district,” said Holley Superintendent Robert D’Angelo. “We take great pleasure in honoring them in this way each year.”
