This past week, the Interact Club along with some members from the Jazz Band went to the Bristol Manor Nursing Home in Rochelle Park to celebrate Mardi Gras. Some members from the LHS Jazz Band performed the entire time at the event while the Interact Club members helped decorate the room and entertain the senior citizens by doing multiple craft projects. They made Mardi Gras themed masks and shared stories. Ms. Getrajdman, the Interact Club adviser, said, “It was heartwarming to watch the students and senior citizens engage with each other.”

Mardi Gras is a French Holiday that translates to Fat Tuesday. The celebration started in the early 1700’s. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, especially those with large Roman Catholic populations. This year, Mardi Gras was celebrated on Feb. 28.

Overall, the event was a success! The senior citizens had a blast talking with the Interact Club members and listening to the Jazz Band members playing. They were even invited back for another event! Ms. Getrajdman mentioned, “The students were charming, engaging, and courteous and I am immensely proud of their hard work!” It’s clear that they made a huge difference in the senior citizen’s life.
