WEST ORANGE, NJ – The 10th annual West Orange High School Senior Citizen Prom will be held at West Orange High School on April 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Tarnoff Cafeteria.
The event is free to all senior citizens in the West Orange community and includes a catered dinner, desserts and beverages, and musical performances by members of the West Orange High School Jazz Band.
“Senior Citizen Proms, or Intergenerational Proms, have been growing in popularity nationally over the past several years,” said WOHS Principal Hayden Moore, pictured above. “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.”
The prom is organized by the West Orange High School Student Council along with advisors Jodi Costanza and Krista Romanshyn.
Those interested in attending should RSVP by April 12 by contacting Jodi Costanza at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-669-5301 ext. 33742 and leave a name, phone number and number of guests attending.
