SENIOR CITIZENS PROM
North Adams, 5-8 p.m.
The Drury High School Sociology classes will hold its annual Senior Citizens Prom at the Drury High School gymnasium. The 2016 theme is "A Dance for the Decades" to help celebrate the decades (1920s-2016) and many folks dress to the theme (roaring 20s, hippies, sock hop, disco, etc) and put their dancing shoes on. For the past 22 years the Drury High School History/Contemporary Issues/Sociology Classes have studied generational differences, sociological impact and ways to help bridge the generational divide. Their research and curriculum culminates with the planning and implementation of a service learning project – a prom for senior citizen’s – that engages elderly residents in the community. This prom is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The event is free and open to the public.
