Senior Citizens' Luncheon and Musical

(This entry was written by Donna Lacovara, Student Assistance Coordinator.) 

On Saturday, March 1st, the Woodbury Education Association’s Pride committee hosted its third annual Senior Citizens’ luncheon. This year the number of attendees tripled to 61!

Seniors, by reservation, enjoyed a catered luncheon provided by Lee Weatherby’s Impromptu Caterers, received a stadium cushion with the message of “Pride in Public Education, Woodbury Education Association,” and even searched through some discarded library books to take home.

Several WEA members hosted the event, which is free of cost to all who attended thanks to a Pride grant provided through the NJEA. At the luncheon’s conclusion, seniors received a complimentary ticket from the WHS Drama Club to their matinee performance of Into the Woods.

All had a wonderful day and the time allowed for WEA members to further connect to our community. Any questions or comments regarding this annual event may be directed to Donna Lacovara (
