Students host luncheon for senior citizens

| December 18, 2014

160Senior Citizens were invited to a luncheon and a drama at Ridgewood High School on Thursday, Dec. 18. The play, directed by Jill Collins and Rebecca Wells, was first produced in New York in October of 1939. Entitled, “The Man Who Came to Dinner”, the comedy focuses on Sheridan Whiteside, played by Jacob Panteloukas, who is invited to Ernest Stanley’s, played by Samuel Scott, house for dinner. On his way in the front door, Whiteside slips on ice and spends the majority of the play in a wheelchair in the Stanley’s home where comedy ensues. Pictured here is Maggie Cutler, as played by Danika Brenneman, and Bert Jefferson, as played by Jared Norman. Cutler is Whiteside’s nurse and falls in love with newspaper reporter, Jefferson. The two plan to be married, but Whiteside as other plans and tries to break up the marriage. “The luncheon has been a tradition in the school district,” said Rebecca Wells, Student Council advisor. “The idea is that the community gives a lot of support to the school and we’re trying to give something back.” For lunch, the guests enjoyed chicken breast, mashed potatoes, stuffing, fruit, and cake. Members of the Student Council and also the STATS Club helped by preparing for the lunch. They also made Christmas ornaments and gingerbread houses for the centerpieces.
