WEST ORANGE, NJ - Senior citizens from across West Orange enjoyed a free evening of dining and dancing that included performances by the girls and boys step teams, vocal performances and lots of laughs at the annual West Orange High School Senior Citizen Prom last week.

The annual event is coordinated by the student council, National Honor Society, and West Orange Township. Live music was provided by the students as well DJ fifties and sixties favorites.

The food was catered by Sodexo and the students and seniors enjoyed getting to know one another as two generations came together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and admiration.

"I love this event and our students look forward to this event every year," said West Orange High School Principal Hayden Moore. “It’s an excellent way to connect the younger generation with our senior citizens. It breaks down barriers, builds friendships and trust, and lets the community know what a great group of kids we have at the high school.”
