Many elders were unable to attend this traditional high school event for reasons such as getting drafted to World War II to being victims of the Great Depression to having strict parents who forbid them from attending.
The Santa Clarita Senior Center wanted to provide a chance for these elderly citizens who did not have the opportunity to attend prom to have a second chance to live that traditional american experience through a live concert band playing romantic prom ballads.
It will feature live music by the Santa Clarita Senior Center’s very own Silvertone Singers who will be dressed in prom attire and will be playing love ballads from the 1920’s to contemporary 2000’s music.
This event will have dancing and refreshments and there will even be announcement of the Santa Clarita Senior Center’s prom king and queen, according to Santa Clarita Senior Center officials.
“I just talked to an adorable senior and he just claimed he wants to bring a corsage for his girlfriend to the senior prom concert. Many seniors are getting into the prom spirit. It will surely be a fun way for anyone to spend an afternoon in an entertaining prom atmosphere,” said Robin Clough, Santa Clarita Senior Center’s head of volunteers and recreation.
It will take place Wednesday, June 26 from 3- 4:30 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center. It is free of charge. The general public is invited to dress up, but it is optional.
The Santa Clarita Senior Center is located at 22900 Market Street Santa Clarita, California 91321, adjacent to the metrolink train station.
