Locals enjoy Seasoned Citizens Prom
Rockport — The sound of smooth jazz and contemporary music with a jazzy twist filled the air at the annual Seasoned Citizens Ball hosted by Camden Hills Regional High School's chapter of National Honor Society May 4 in the Wave Cafe.
Nearly 40 people, 50 years old and older put on their best dress and dancing shoes and fox-trotted their way back in time. Current members of the NHS were on hand, acting as hosts and dance partners, making connections between today's generation and America's greatest.
“This a great time and the kids enjoy putting the prom on for these folks,” said Faith Vautour, co-advisor of NHS. “This [Seasoned Citizens Prom] is one of the many things our National Honors Society members do for the community, including a Veteran's Day breakfast and the talent show.”
Marlene Hall and the Breakers Jazz Band provided music and had the crowd on their feet, some dancing cheek-to-cheek and others just moving to the beat.
“We are having a great time,” said Harry Grant. “We love to dance and the music is amazing.”
This is the eighth year the NHS has hosted the event.
