For nearly 30 years, on a special Friday in December, Lakehill has continued a holiday tradition that remains in the hearts of attendees long after the apple pie is finished.
Lakehill's annual Holiday Luncheon brings more than 150 elderly residents from around east Dallas to the Lakehill campus to share the spirit of the season with the Lakehill family. This year's event, held on Dec. 13, continued the much anticipated tradition.
Members of Lakehill's senior class, along with their parents and class sponsors, joined forces with the entire Upper School to provide a memorable holiday experience for senior citizens. Many of these guests are regular attendees who look forward to the luncheon every year.
Tasty food, good music, and enjoyable conversations with the students seemed to get everyone in the holiday spirit. Guests were thrilled to receive a variety of gifts, including framed photos with the junior class Santa and Mrs. Claus, lovely poinsettias, and gift-filled stockings prepared by Sisteens.
Headmaster Roger Perry said, "The Holiday Luncheon is a wonderful tradition that truly reinforces the meaning of the holidays. For many guests, this special annual event is the highlight of their holiday season. We also hear time and time again from our alumni that the Holiday Luncheon is their most treasured memory of their time at Lakehill."
