About 250 Montgomery High School Seniors Gathered for the Class of 2022 Bonfire

By Melissa Lister and Donna Simonetti | May 2, 2022

The Class of 2022 gathered for a senior bonfire on Friday, April 29. About 250 seniors attended the event, enjoyed the warmth of the fire, listened to good music, played outdoor games, ate snacks, and celebrated their upcoming graduation from Montgomery High School. A group of MHS parents organized the event, held at the Elks Lodge on Route 518 from 7:30 to 10 pm.

The event was truly a community effort — the local Montgomery Township Volunteer Fire Co No. 2, along with Chief Adam Verducci, his team, and the junior firefighters were on site, as well as Montgomery EMS, and the Montgomery Police Department, who patrolled the area.

Montgomery Fire Marshall, Roy Mondi and Inspector Steve Milne also attended the bonfire to give their final approvals and kickoff the start of the bonfire.

The parent organizers also would like to thank the Princeton Elks Lodge, especially Ellen Robbins. Dozens of parent volunteers also worked hard to ensure that a safe and fun event was enjoyed by all. This enormous effort was made possible by the generosity of ”The Class of 2022 Parent Group.” The event was free to all seniors. Sweet Gourmet Bakery also donated cupcakes, cookies, and brownies for dessert.

Seniors: Joseph Greenspoon, Jackson Lister, Tyler Malinowski, Will Sisler, Saki Hill, Alex Zambrowski, Ian Purkis, Kevin Boyle, and Connor Weiss.

Lastly, special thanks to the Montgomery High School administration for facilitating communication.

The Class of 2022 Parent group has been holding an event/activity/grab & go every month during this senior year to help celebrate the MHS graduates, especially since the class lost almost two years of their high school experience due to the COVID pandemic.

All these events are free of charge to all seniors - we have been able to get donations from parents and the community for all events. Many parents have volunteered their time for these monthly events.
