"I think it's a good cause for the seniors to have a good supper and to meet new people," said DVSS student, Brody Ewing.

The dinner was made by the cooking students from the school. They served turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, a home-made bun and carrots served with cranberry sauce and gravy.

"It's a very good thing and gets you in the Christmas spirit," said Senior attendee, Bob Benner. "The school, the student and the staff do an excellent job. I hope they never quit it."

"You don't know what they (the seniors) have been through and it's just a day that they might not have had a chance to talk to anyone. When you have a chance to make someone's day, it's really cool."
