A Prom Night To Remember
The evening was perfect for a “Senior Prom”!
West Warwick Senior Center was the setting for their first “Senior Prom” on May 18, 2017 hosted by West View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. It had become evident that many of the people that came to the Center had never been able to attend their senior prom. West View felt that this community deserved to have this special event—and so the idea of a “Senior Prom” was launched.
The live band played the favorites of the 1950’s and provided tunes that everyone danced the entire evening to. Handsome men sporting their boutonnieres while elegantly dressed and sequenced ladies, all with corsages, danced and moved as if they were 18 years old again. There truly is something magical to watch a couple glide gracefully across the dance floor.
Everyone hadtheir photograph professionally taken and received a framed copy to take home with them that very evening. They all loved it, and the pictures were such a beautiful keepsake of the evening.
Decorations, linens, silver trimmed dishes, and floral centerpieces made the buffet and desserts all the more delicious. Punch, beer, and fine wines were lavations which accompanied the dinner.
It truly was a well-deserved special event forour West Warwick community. This was such a wonderful event to help plan and work on that I cannot wait to start planning the “Senior Prom 2018”.
You positively must come next year—it will be a prom night that you too will always remember!
