JohnettaPartyOn Friday, December 4, a group of Bay View High School students brought extra smiles to everyone attending the 44th Annual Johnetta Broum Christmas Party for Deserving Children.
The annual event, started by a postal worker in 1971, gives underprivileged children a great start to the holiday season.
Hundreds of students from various MPS schools were partnered with community sponsors to enjoy a beautiful luncheon at the Italian Community Center. The event included face painting, gifts and performances by the Bay View High School drumline and choir. Students led carols and energized the crowd with their drum performance directed by music teacher Michelle Kartz.
The musicians were also treated to lunch provided by the Bay View McDonald’s as a thank-you for making the party even more special with their performance.
