On Friday, May 11, a wonderful, inter-generational event was held at the Center at Spring Street. The Senior/Senior prom brought together the 'over 55 crowd' with a group of high school seniors for an evening of dancing and fun.
The 26 students in attendance were members of the National Honor Society under the direction of Miranda Johnson. They chose the theme of 'Dancing in the Moonlight.' As the Seniors arrived, the students greeted them and gave a carnation to each one.
As you might imagine, the 76 members of the Center at Spring Street were delighted to share their 'home' with the young people. The Center arranged for The Clayton Moore Band to provide the music for the evening. There was also a photographer on hand to capture the joy-filled moments of this special event.
For most of the evening, the dance floor was the place to be. However, when the band took its breaks, the room was buzzing with the sounds of stories being told and plans for the future being shared.
By the end of the prom, the students were convinced that the older generation knows how to have fun and that listening to them is really quite interesting. The older generation left knowing that teenagers can be very respectful and that the future is in good hands. Everyone had a great time and created special memories.
This was the 13th year for the Senior/Senior prom. Based on the comments of all in attendance, there will surely be many more to come!
