OHS Students, Senior Citizens “Do Lunch”
A difference of 60 or 70 years doesn’t make any difference at all during Overland High School’s Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon.  Smiles, laughter and music fill any generation gap that might exist between the school’s students and more than 200 senior citizens who look forward to the luncheon all year long.
“I come every year,” said Cynthia Gibas, who is 87 years young.  “It’s so nice and the kids are so sweet.”
“They’re extremely polite and cordial,” agreed Gloria Shea, who’s been coming to the luncheon for ten years.
Overland hosted its 24th Annual Senior Citizen Luncheon on Sept. 23.  Area senior citizens were treated to a delicious lunch, prepared by the school’s food service staff and served by members of Overland’s Student Council and the Cheer and Pom Squads. 
“I thought it was fun,” said student Ashley Barber who is a junior at Overland.  “I think it’s good for people to interact with high school students.  It shows that Overland is part of the community.”
Superintendent Mary Chesley emphasized the concept of community and thanked the seniors for their support of the Cherry Creek School District over many years.
“From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for the legacy you have given us,” said Chesley.  “We are truly blessed to have a circle of community around us.  We cannot do what we want to do, what we need to do, without you.”
The guests also enjoyed performances by the OHS Jazz Choir and Jazz Ensemble, and the Seniors 88 choral group.
