Senior Prom

April 28, 2017
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Thanks to the Area Office on Aging and Toledo Public Schools about 250 older adults each year get an opportunity to go back to school to attend Senior Prom for a night of dinner and dancing. Students and older adults sometimes believe mistaken negative stereotypes about one another. Toledo Public Schools and the AOoA’s Senior Prom at TPS high schools provide a positive intergenerational experience. The students roll out the red carpet for the older adults, put the corsages and boutonnieres on them and serve them food. Older adults and students share the dance floor teaching one another dance moves. Senior Prom attendee Carol Szurminski said, “We seniors were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in the door. Kudos to them all and to you for making this the most enjoyable evening I’ve had in about 20 years.”
