Friday night may 17th from 6 pm to 9 pm, Arthur L Johnson's Key Club held its second annual Senior Citizen Prom. Following the success of last years prom, Key Club once again put together a committee that met once a week in order to come up with a theme, buy decorations, create invitations, and ask for donations.
This year the theme was a decade dance and decorations corresponded with pop culture from the 50's and 60's. Although admittance was free, attendees were asked to bring a canned food item in order to contribute to Key Club's ongoing annual project of Feeding the Hungry. Dinner for the event was provided by Applebee’s, with dessert provided by Vaccaro’s Bakery, the senior citizens enjoyed a night dining and dancing.
Special guest and pageant winner Miss Coastal Shore came to visit and sang her talent song “Gold” for all the guests. Later, when the King and Queen of the prom were announced, Miss Coastal Shore crowned them. Overall the night was a great success as attendance was over 100. Key Club hopes to continue this tradition into the future.
