The event was hosted by members of the school's National Honor Society.

More than 60 senior members of the community spent Thursday afternoon at Corry Area Middle-High School taking part in an Easter luncheon celebration.

The annual event is hosted by members of the school's National Honor Society as a way to promote camaraderie between both groups.

"This is an outing for us and a chance to get together with our friends," said Ellen Burrows, a senior community member. "We really enjoy it and the food is good."

Burrows was joined by friends Dona Fox and Linda Titch.

"The kids always come and talk with us," said Titch, grandmother of junior student Alexis Titch. "It's a nice event."

NHS members waited on the seniors by bringing them drinks and clearing their plates. Many students also sat and visited with guests.

NHS advisers Roxann Dougherty and Jeanne Norton said they never have a problem getting volunteers to help at this event, adding that many of the guests that participate are grandparents, or aunts and uncles of the students.

In the fall, NHS holds a similar event to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with the seniors.

NHS, which is a service organization, holds many additional events throughout the year. They host a Christmas party for special-needs children, two blood drives for the Community Blood Bank and volunteer their time to support the Corry Chamber of Commerce.
