On December 13th, The LHS National Honors Society celebrated their annual senior citizens dance. While this event is usually held in the spring, the society decided to change it up this year to The Snow Ball Dance! This dance was held at the Cortland Christian Church. All of the members of the society brought in snacks and refreshments for their senior citizen friends to enjoy as they danced the night away to their favorite good time songs. Everyone who attended the dance had great time and could not have asked for a better night!

Senior Sydney Whipkey looks forward to this event and was delighted to meet up with some of the seniors she met last spring.

Whipkey claimed, “It was so fun to recognize the senior citizens who came back from last year. They are all so sweet and deserved a fun night out!”

Whipkey and all of the other high school seniors were disappointed that this was their last big event for The National Honors Society, but they will always remember the great memories they created from this program.

Junior Ally Mark was so excited to attend her first senior citizen dance.

Mark stated, ” It was an honor to be a part of this great event. Also, it was so fun to dance with the senior citizens and I can’t wait until next year!”

Of course, this event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of their adviser Jenna Hogue. Hogue spends a lot of time and effort to make events like these special and memorable. Also, the event wouldn’t have been complete without the help of the musical entertainment provided by Lakeview chemistry teacher and DJ Joshua Murphy. All of members of The National Honors Society are grateful for everyone who helped make this night one to remember.
