Students think prom is a once in a lifetime event, but the Key Club will be helping some area senior citizens experience it again.

The Key Club is hosting a “prom” for senior citizens at the Brookdale Senior Center on Jan. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“The grandparents of one of our student board members lives there,” Key club sponsor Caroline Babik said. “Another school used to do it, but this year they could not, so Emily (Yossi) thought it would be a good opportunity for us.”  

Along with the Key Club, other clubs and teams volunteering include National Honors Society and members of the cross country team.

“We’re going earlier in the day to decorate and bring food,” Babik said. “And then when the dance begins, we are there to make them smile and dance with them.”

Babik is excited to see what kind of music the senior citizens like and what their idea of a dance is.

“I’ve worked with older people before and the best part is seeing the smiles on their faces,” Babik said. “They love when there are young people there interacting and having fun with them. It is definitely the best reason to give up a weekend night.”
