NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - More than 160 senior citizens from throughout the West Essex area enjoyed a delicious homemade breakfast prepared by High School culinary students and then the first act of the West Essex Masquers spring musical "Guys & Dolls."
 
First, West Essex High School Principal Gary Suda welcomed seniors to West Essex. Then tables of seniors took turns enjoying the buffet. Each section of culinary one students prepared a different item for the breakfast, said student Heather Downey, a sophomore from Roseland, whose class made cranberry muffins. Seniors also dined on delicious individual spinach quiches, homemade crumb cake, sour cream cake, blueberry muffins, apple sauce muffins, fresh fruit salad and yogurt. Students then went to each table to serve seniors coffee, tea and juice.
Len and Grace Bachmann of Fairfield said they love coming to the high school where their grandson Mike is a student and grandson Zach graduated last spring. "We all look forward to this every year," Mrs. Bachmann said of the March breakfast and spring musical preview.
 
Freshman Kira Shabab from Fairfield said that she reallly enjoys meeting the seniors at the breakfast. "They are really so sweet and I love serving them," she said.
 
Senor Madeline Senchak of Fairfield smiled when she came to the buffet. "Look at all of the food-everything is just delicious!"
 
Many seniors said they were also impressed with the first act of the spring musical and planned to return to see the entire show March 20, 21 or 22.
