Fun-filled senior citizen prom at Friends Academy


Over 100 local seniors dusted off their dancing shoes for the annual Senior Citizen Prom, at Friends Academy on March 7.

Students happily greeted seniors at tables who were ushered in to play card games, pool all while having meaningful conversations as they got to know each other.

“For the senior members, being able to spend the time with the younger generation is always very uplifting,” Christine Rice, executive director of the Glen Cove Senior Center, said. “The high school seniors show them a level of respect at the wisdom that the senior members have.”
