The Ocean County Retired Educators Association held its annual December holiday luncheon on Thursday, Dec. 12 at the Days Hotel in Toms River. The Lakewood High School Orchestra provided entertainment, playing various holiday music selections for the audience’s enjoyment. OCREA member Mrs. Barbara Bowen joined in a singalong of holiday songs with the help of Lakewood music teacher, Tyler Flint. The orchestra was under the direction of Dr David Berrios.
During the performance, the students circulated throughout the room with treats for the members in attendance and some lively conversation. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the show. As an extra treat, Philanthropic Chair Edith Fulton presented a donation to the music department of Lakewood High School.
