2nd Annual Nursing Senior Extravaganza is a Hit

On April 8, 40 of Bloomfield College’s nursing students dedicated their Friday afternoon, put on their dancing shoes, and volunteered at the Second Annual Nursing Senior Extravaganza.

The special event was held in the cafeteria of Bloomfield High school, and welcomed 130 of Bloomfield’s residents, 60 and older. Admission was free, the food was donated, as was the entertainment.

A singer and his pianist got the party started, playing the hits of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. It wasn’t long before the attendees – and the nursing students – were on the dance floor together.

The Extravaganza was coordinated by Lori Ann Palmieri, an Associate Professor in Bloomfield College’s nursing department, and Paula Peikes, supervisor of Human Services for the township. The original objective was to provide an environment for multi-generational socialization.

Last year the event was held on the College’s campus and was such a hit, a larger venue was necessary this time around, so the event was moved a short distance to Bloomfield High School.

Both Palmieri and Peikes hope to continue this tradition next year.
