More than 100 senior class members of l pedaled their way from house to house in the annual senior class progressive dinner Monday night. The annual event, one of many scheduled in the closing days leading up to graduation day, has been a tradition in Summit for many years. This year's dinner started at the Ciaravalli's home on Portland Road where the seniors got the night started with appetizers and beverages after parking their bicycles on the driveway.
"We volunteered to do this after a friend told us about it. It sounded like a fun thing to do for the senior class," said Maria Ciaravalli.
For a $5 fee the senior class was treated to appetizers, dinner and dessert at three separate homes in Summit hosted by senior parents. Most of the food was donated by many senior parents.
Dinner was also a big hit as the seniors enjoyed chicken, barbecued pork and other delicacies, as well the camaraderie at the Cooper home on Oak Ridge. After managing to pose for a group shot on a big rock in the back yard it was time for dessert at the Klassen home on Manor Hill Road and the bikers were off and pedaling one more time.
Parents, such as Kris Jennings, volunteered to help coordinate the evening festivities at each location with help and support from Summit High teacher and senior class adviser, Judith Schue, who has helped organize five progressive dinners over the years.
"It's a fun event for the seniors who I have known for all four years. It's great to see how they have grown from freshmen into such fine young adults," said Schue.
