OHS Students, Senior Citizens “Do Lunch”
A difference of 60 or 70 years didn’t make any difference at all during Overland High School’s Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon. Smiles, laughter and music filled any generation gap that might have existed between the school’s students and more than 100 senior citizens, some of whom have been coming to the luncheon for years and others who tried it for the first time this year.

“It’s a joy to see the kids,” said Mary Webb, 84, who attended the luncheon with her neighbor, Steve Stephens, 82. “The kids are outgoing and friendly,” added Stephens.

Overland hosted its 26th Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon on Sept. 20 to celebrate more than a quarter century of friendship with the school’s senior community. Area senior citizens were treated to a delicious lunch, prepared by the school’s food service staff and served by members of Overland’s National Honor Society and Cheer and Pom Squads. 

“It makes me feel wonderful,” said Pom Squad member Aliesa Pope of the opportunity to talk with the seniors. “They gave us so much, now we can give back a little. We like giving back. It makes me happy.”

“They are actually amazing,” added Lexi Dowd, also a member of the Pom Squad. “They have done great stuff, served our country. I love being able to give back to them.”

The guests also enjoyed performances by the OHS Jazz Choir and Jazz Ensemble and the Seniors 88 choral group from Heather Gardens.

“It’s just lovely,” said senior Bonnie Dunn, who attended with her husband Harold.
