North Bergen seniors had their choice of holiday parties this year, with celebrations at the Nutrition Center and at several of the senior housing buildings.
On Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2017 the festivities lit up the Terrace Apartments, with a huge buffet dinner, dancing to a live DJ, and a visit from Santa Claus. Then two nights later the party picked up at the Cullum Building, with another delicious meal and even a live saxophone serenade.
Certificates of Appreciation were presented at the Cullum event to Ester Cordero for her outstanding service to Our Lady of Fatima Food Pantry, and to Mercy Orbie Henao “for being the most beautiful, helpful, friendly and best building manager in North Bergen.”
Mayor Nicholas Sacco surprised attendees by picking up the bill for both events. Also attending the parties and offering their holiday greetings to the seniors were Commissioners Hugo Cabrera and Julio Marenco, Freeholder Anthony Vainieri, and Housing Authority Director Gerald Sanzari.
