Students of Lindenhurst Middle School recently took part in the 10th annual “Gingerbread House Holiday Workshop,” sponsored by the family and consumer science department and Gingerbread University of Baiting Hollow. The university professor, Fred Terry, gave students a tutorial on how to decorate a great gingerbread house.
Using those techniques, each participating child designed a pre-made gingerbread house using the various candy decorations provided. This year, students were entertained by the musical stylings of Jorge Buccio of Puglia’s Restaurant in Little Italy, who got the crowd moving with the “Napkin Dance.”
They also had the opportunity to win special holiday-oriented prizes and take photos with Santa. In addition, the afternoon featured a canned food collection to help those in need.
