Seniors Not Junior

Christmas parties continued today with the gala "Santa Claus Christmas Party" at the Seniors in nearby Evesham.
When it comes to a Christmas party, there's nothing 'junior" about The Seniors. Shawn and Danielle Senior pull out all the stops and this year was no exception. More than 100 friends and relatives attended this all-day Christmas affair which featured plenty of great food, libations and a huge number of treats for the children.
There were tons of Ciruccis at the affair (including many Cirucci cousins) and plenty of Shawn Senior's baseball pals from Shawn's days as a standout player for Cherry Hill West High School and at North Carolina State and later with the Boston Red Sox organization. Shawn, a UBS broker, is a member of the South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame.
Anyway, this year's event featured the traditional reading of "The Night Before Christmas" (with the Senior's 13-foot real, live Christmas tree as a backdrop) and the arrival of Santa Claus himself. More than 30 tots crowded around Santa -- all with wide eyes and high expectations. And, no one was disappointed.
The whole affair began at 1 P. M. and when we left at 6 P. M. a lively group of adults was still imbibing. Now that's one way to define "Merry!"
