Thanksgiving Comes Early at EHS
Honor Students Serve Seniors
Sliced turkey, potato filling, seasoned green beans and jellied cranberry were served by National Honor Society students at Emmaus High School on Nov. 9. Oh yeah, plus spice cake for dessert.
Golden Age card-holders and school district crossing guards were invited to the annual luncheon provided by East Penn School District.
National Honor Society students served 475 adults at the high school, with entertainment provided by the jazz band.
Other seniors attended similar Thanksgiving luncheons at the district's two middle schools in Lower Macungie Township. In total, about 1,000 people were fed at the three schools. East Penn has been doing the Thanksgiving luncheons to recognize seniors for more than 35 years.
