On Tuesday Feb. 25, the honor society students from the international language classes at West Milford High School hosted their 20th international dinner event.

Students from the Italian, German, French, and Spanish honor society classes gathered in the high school caféteria where they shared their native dishes with local senior citizens.

The dinner was organized by the international language teachers, Vincenza Certosimo (Italian), Karen Johnson (German), Leonel Andrade (Spanish), and Cathy Schoppe (French), who all worked feverishly to pull off this cultural evening.

The night was a huge success, as over 100 guests showed up for an evening of dinner and a showing of the high school's production of "Peter Pan." The $8 ticket admitted the senior citizens to experience a night of international cuisine followed by the performance. During the dinner, music was played by the Kerssen family band with Kayleigh Bennett on vocals.

Some of the most popular dishes were potatoes au gratin, ratatouille, and chicken coq au vin from the French, spaetzle, goulash, and red cabbage from the Germans, empanadas and quesadillas from the Spanish, and chicken Parmesan, penne vodka, and lasagna from the Italians.

The students had a great time sharing their cultures with each other as well as their guests.
