Shrewsbury –About 85 senior citizens enjoyed dinner and a show March 7 at Shrewsbury High School on opening night of the school’s spring musical, “Seussical the Musical.” The dinner was sponsored by the Shrewsbury Rotary Club and organized by club member Joe Montecalvo.
This event dates back to the 1970s when Montecalvo was vice principal of the high school. He organized the dinner as way to feed those in need and it evolved over the years into an event for seniors.
“They enjoy it and they have a good time and we always coordinate it with a play or the spring musical,” Montecalvo noted.
“It’s always wonderful and everyone always looks forward to it – to be able to get together and socialize and enjoy a delicious meal. They love to see the kids and they always rave about the wonderful shows that they put on here. It’s always a good time,” added Sharon Yager, Council on Aging director.
