NEWTON, N.C. – Newton’s senior citizens celebrated the coming Christmas holiday by gathering for an annual breakfast Thursday, December 4, 2014, at the City of Newton’s Recreation Center.
The twang of the Alexander County Ole Time Pickers filled the recreation center as 100 seniors feasted on a breakfast donated by Bojangles.
Attendees sat at tables lined with red coverings and decorated with festive poinsettias. Servers wearing brightly-colored Santa Claus aprons moved between the tables, filling drinks and making sure everyone had plenty to eat.
The Catawba County Council on Aging sponsored the Senior Citizens Christmas Breakfast and provided door prizes.
