250 local Senior Citizens attend annual Christmas Party

On Wednesday November 29th Intel’s Annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party took place, an evening where seniors from the local community and a team of Intel volunteers come together to celebrate the festive season. This was the 19th year of the party which is a special evening both for local residents and for the Intel employees who take part.

Over 250 seniors from the local community and a team of Intel volunteers come together to celebrate the festive season

Over 250 guests were collected from a number of different locations across Leixlip and brought to the Springfield Hotel to kick off the evening.

Hugh Hardiman, Director of Public Affairs at Intel Ireland warmly welcomed everyone as they were seated. Before the meal was served, the General Manager of the Springfield Hotel, Ger Hannigan brought everyone together for a short moments silence to say grace and shortly afterwards a traditional dinner of turkey and ham was served to guests. This was followed by dessert and once the band began to play, everyone was eager to hit the dancefloor.

Bobby Harpur and the rest of the band kept the crowd entertained for the night, playing all time classics such as ‘New York, New York’ and ‘Proud Mary’. Everyone was on their feet, and only retired to their seats for the beginning of the raffle, where five spot prizes were presented to five lucky guests.

Most guests remained on the dancefloor until the night came to a close in a traditional Christmas fashion with ‘Fairy-tale of New York’. As the guests left the Intel volunteers presented them with a Christmas inspired goodie bag.

Thank you to all those who attended the 2017 event and to the Intel volunteers for their continued support.
