Senior citizens dressed to the nines in Woodbridge recently.
Several older adults danced the night away at the Woodbridge Senior Center’s first senior prom.
The event offered music and refreshments, according to a release from Prince William County.
“Everything is good about the prom, the oldies but goodies, everyone dancing together and enjoying themselves, Roberta Antoine said in a release. I’m having a good time.”
Some of the 125 participants were reminded of their high school dance.
It was a first for others, including center member Vernetha Starling.
“I’ve never been to a prom in my life and sometimes as seniors, we don’t get the chance to dress up any more,” Starling, who set up the program, said in a release. “Sometimes it just feels good to dress up.”
A drawing was used to decide the Prom King and Queen. Jean Alava and John Happboldt were selected.
“It’s not like being in school where you know everybody, and you can vote,” Starling said. “To be fair, we had a drawing.”
