Okay seniors, let’s boogie! It’s time to get your groove on! The senior class of Twin Valley High School is hosting their second annual prom for seniors (that is, a Seniors’ Prom), on Saturday, May 6, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at Dover Town Hall. The theme this year is Old Hollywood and the kids will provide music from the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. I believe there will be a donation of $10 for a single like me and $15 for a couple. I went last year and it was a hoot.

As part of their graduation requirements, students must accumulate 40 hours of community service. This party will help fulfill that obligation for many students. They do a photo booth, music, food and drink at a buffet, and it is loads of fun. This year there will be a red carpet and interviews replete with “and who are you wearing?” L.L. Bean, of course, or maybe Carhartt.

The part I liked the best last year was the look on the faces of the students as they watched these old geezers cutting a rug. As recognition gradually dawned that grandma “still had it,” the boys cut in and asked to dance, too. They were a lovely lot.

This communitywide, intergenerational effort is a wonderful idea, and a chance to get dressed up and interact with our grandkids’ generation. They need a head count so there will be enough food. RSVP to Dawn Borys (802) 464-6553 or Jen Nielsen (802) 464-0223.
