It’s time to put on your dancing shoes and join the Greenbrier County Committee on Aging and the WVSOM Student Geriatrics Club for the Annual Prom for the Rest of Us – a prom for the adults in the area. Come and dance the evening away to the music of the ‘40s, ‘50s, ‘60s and beyond. Come dressed for the prom, whatever that was in your day – or in blue jeans. The point is to have fun.
The event will be held Saturday, Apr. 18 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Alumni Building at WVSOM. Free snacks and a cash bar will be available. Tickets are $15 for a single and $25 for a couple. Tickets are available at the Fairlea or Rupert Senior Centers or at the door on Apr. 18.
Residents of the local nursing homes and assisted living are invited to attend free of cost. So sponsorship is important. Sponsorship of a table of 8 is $100 or $50 for half a table, with sponsors receiving free tickets and their names displayed on the table.
Monies raised from the event will go to meet the shortfall in GCCA’s Meals on Wheels program. The Greenbrier County Committee on Aging provides services to seniors in all of Greenbrier County. Besides Meals on Wheels, congregate meals are served at the Fairlea, Rupert and Alderson sites; transportation for appointments and shopping, in-home respite care, personal care and medication management are also provided by the Committee. If you or a family member need one of these services please call 304-645-1978 or 304-392-5198 for more information.
The GCCA is looking forward to a very successful event and hope all will come and join in the fun.
