For more than 20 years, Conshohocken Elementary School has hosted local senior citizens for a Thanksgiving luncheon that features a free turkey dinner with all the fixings and a concert. This year’s luncheon event served more than 60 senior citizens. “You see the kids, and they put on a show for us,” said Shirley O’Donnell who walked over from Marshall W. Lee Towers. “It’s nice.” The students had been preparing for the event for several days. The kindergarteners created centerpieces and the Helping Hands club made favors filled with candy for each place setting. The third-grade choir performed at the luncheon and a classroom of third-grade students donned aprons and served as waiters and waitresses. “You’re helping other people,” said third grader Isabelle Jackson. “It makes you feel good.”
