You don’t have to wait until midnight to celebrate the New Year with music, dancing and more. The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse is throwing a "Noon" Year’s Eve Party for seniors on Wednesday, Dec. 31 from noon to 2 p.m. at its location on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. The event, part of the JCC’s Senior Dining Program, will begin with a kosher lunch and followed by live music, dancing and holiday photo booth portraits.

There also will be dancing, a New Year’s countdown with sparkling juice toast, singing of Auld Lang Syne and a holiday portraits photo booth. Guests are welcome to don their party clothes and dress appropriately for the occasion. The room will be decked out with New Year’s sparkle and balloons, and party hats and noise makers will be provided.

 “We’re very pleased to be putting on another early New Year’s celebration for seniors again this year,” said Leesa Paul, JCC of Syracuse’s director of senior programming. “Having everyone come together around a wonderful meal and then to enjoy all the traditions of a great New Year’s party is very special.”
