This is one event that most seniors in the Drumheller valley look forward to and it's back again for the 23rd year. 
"Back when the first year happened, Tom Zariski was Principal at the time and he had actually seen it as a news piece from a Calgary school. That's when we started doing it and since then, I have not heard of anyone doing it," stated DVSS Principal, Curtis LaPierre. 
LaPierre reported to 99.5 Drum FM that this is an opportunity to bring the generations in the Valley together. 
"Often times seniors get exposure to who youth are, but often times that exposure is through television and it's always not very positive. I think that's one of the things they enjoy most is that they find teens are lovely human beings, gracious, excited and wanting to serve," expressed LaPierre. 
The Seniors Dinner will take place on December 16, 2017 at the Drumheller Valley Secondary School. 
"It's a great event and we're looking forward to hosting yet again for year 23. The band will be playing, the choir will be singing, the kids will be waiting on the tables and my students will be cooking the food," LaPierre added. "I'm pretty standard in terms with the menu I serve from year to year. I might make a change on the salad dressing this year, but we'll stick with a traditional turkey supper. The sticky date pudding is such a hit I dare not change it simply because I'll be in trouble."
"The doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and we'll start serving coffee at 11:45. The meal itself will be served at 1:00 p.m. and entertainment will start at I believe noon."
