‘Senior’ Prom for Senior Citizens

WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP -- It was prom night for a group of seniors near Wilkes-Barre. Only this party wasn't for high schoolers.

Two juniors from Abington Heights High School organized the night of drinks, dinner, and dancing for residents at Highland Park Senior Living Center on Schechter Drive.

Abington Heights Juniors Alyssa Angelicola and Madison Badalamente put on the party as part of their graduation project.

The theme of this "senior" prom was "The Great Gatsby."

Residents we talked to couldn't wait to get the party started.

"I'm very happy to be part of the activity and enjoying it. I promise to behave. And I'm looking forward to this evening with a little music and dancing," said Don Wadsworth.

A prom king and queen will even be crowned at the prom night event in Wilkes-Barre.
