Haunted Halloween Party
One activity that seniors enjoy is attending a party. In fact,
it ranks up there with BINGO and a Trip to Atlantic City. All
of these require no preparation on their part. They don’t
have to prepare a menu, cook, bake or clean their houses; they
don’t even have to worry about seating arrangements or
who to invite.
This year when the word went out that Century 21 Eudan Realty
was hosting their Fourth Annual Halloween Bash for seniors,
the news spread like wild fire; in fact, seniors from Hasbrouck
Heights, Wood-Ridge, Lodi and Garfield attended. Could it be
that they heard about the great spread the host provided in
the past or was it because they all love Halloween?
The staff at Century 21 Eudan Realty did an outstanding job
of hosting this special event. The food was excellent and plentiful.
It was catered by Henry’s Deli. There were generous selections
of hot and cold items. The chicken breast stuffed with cheese
and broccoli and the sausage were my favorites.
DJ Chris, who has been a regular at these parties, played music
that got seniors to dance, mostly; line dancing. But best of
all, it wasn’t loud, so the seniors were able to listen,
yet carry on conversations without shouting.
This year there were not as many seniors in costume as there
were in past years. However, there was a wide-range of costumes.
What’s not to love about Halloween? It’s a day where
young and old enjoy celebrating. This year, a 2 ½ year
old child dressed as Superman came to my door accompanied by
his mother. When he saw me he called out “Trick or Treat?”
I dropped a candy bar in his pumpkin and he turned to leave.
His mother called out to him, “What do you say?”
He turned back and said, “MORE!” Story by Peter
