Festive activities at senior center | Bonney Lake

The Victor Falls Elementary choir sang holiday favorites at the Bonney Lake Senior Center

The Bonney Lake Senior Center welcomed the holiday season with a concert by the Victor Falls Elementary choir on Dec. 12.

The choir of 64 fourth and fifth grade students led by Mark Edgbert performed a variety of holiday tunes to a room packed with senior citizens and parents.

Along with singing, the choir included dancing to correspond with some of their songs.

The Victor Falls choir will return to the senior center in the spring to perform once again.

“Mark doesn’t get enough credit for the performance,” Senior Services Manager Sue Hilberg said. “It’s all on him to get all those kids to focus and perform.”

The holiday cheer will continue Thursday and Friday with a Christmas dinner starting at 10 a.m.

The meal will include glazed ham with pineapple, scalloped potatoes, yams, dinner rolls, ambrosia salad and dessert.

Accompanying the meal on both days will be a performance by Community Blend, a husband wife duo of Tom and Renee Brooks.

The senior center put on two meals for Thanksgiving and served nearly 200 people, Hilberg said.

Each day for the Christmas dinner, the center will set up to serve 85 people.

In her 10 holiday season with the senior center, she anticipates the center will end up making room and serving more than they have originally set up for.

At the time of going to press, the Thursday dinner was full and only spots were available on Friday.

And to close out the holiday season with a bang, the senior center will host a New Year’s Eve Party on Tuesday starting at 10 a.m.

The party is $5 per person and it will include a toast at noon. The New Band will be performing and the senior center is asking people to bring snacks to share.
