The Ada Schools welcomed 230 senior citizens to the 26th annual Christmas luncheon, which included a visit from Santa, and concluded with a performance by the Varsity Singers and High School Choir.

The festive occasion was an opportunity for the school system to say "thank you" for all that the seniors have done for the school in the past and continue to do.
