Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School ushered in the holiday season with its annual Senior-to-Senior Dinner hosted by the Class of 2019 in the school’s cafeteria on Dec. 4.

Local senior citizens joined together with the senior class for an evening of music, dancing, food and companionship. Wearing their most festive holiday attire, the students welcomed guests and escorted them to their tables. The Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Madrigal Choir, under the direction of Gina Occhiogrosso, provided the holiday tunes for the evening, singing arrangements that encouraged the audience to singalong.

Following the performance, senior citizens were treated to a dinner served by the students. Afterward, the guests and students made their way to the dance floor to enjoy some time together. With raffle tickets distributed at the door, the senior citizens each had a chance to win one of more than three dozen prizes.
