Mahopac Senior Citizens Cut a Rug at ‘Senior Prom’

MAHOPAC, N.Y. – More than 250 seniors attended the 11th annual Senior Citizen Prom at Mahopac High School on Sunday.

The annual event had a sock-hop theme this year, and seniors were treated to music, dancing and dinner, while also being given a chance to interact with more than 100 students from the Mahopac High School Student Athletic Council, which sponsors the event.

State Sen. Greg Ball also was at the event, to present a $5,000 grant to help fund it.

“This is a wonderful event that Mahopac school district hosts every year,” Ball said. “The event allows students to meet and enjoy a fun day with our senior citizen population.”

Mahopac Schools Superintendent Thomas Manko said, “Sen. Greg Ball’s support for the senior citizens of our community through this grant is enthusiastically appreciated. This … will enable the school district to continue this important initiative that recognizes our senior citizens and provides a forum for intergenerational communication where current high school students serve dinner, coffee and dessert to our senior citizens and dance with and listen to stories from the senior citizens.”

    The student athletic council Fundraises tirelessly to fund the senior citizens prom. Senator balls 5k “grant” does not go to fund the event. The Sac starts raising money the second school begins with their biggest fundraiser being cookie dough. Please give the credit to the students and not senator Ball.
