GracePointe Prom Celebrates Seniors

The term ‘senior’ has even more meaning at a special senior prom. GracePointe by Tabitha, Assisted Living & Memory Care Suites, hosted its annual spring dinner and dance with a nostalgic ‘Springtime in the Country’ theme.

GracePointe Prom 2019 petting zoo

Marie Nosal enjoyed petting farm critters including one-week old baby goats thanks to Lancaster County 4-H club students.

The night included live music, a farm-inspired petting zoo and delicious desserts and appetizers prepared by GracePointe’s own talented executive chef. Students from Lancaster County 4-H clubs, “Rabbits R Us,” “Five Star 4-H” and “Go Go Goat Getters,” brought baby chicks, goats and rabbits for the residents and families to enjoy. Guests sported their favorite casual western attire, including bandana scarves they crafted, while enjoying classic country music. Student volunteers also accompanied residents during the event and on the dance floor for this intergenerational mixer.

“This year’s prom was pretty special for the residents,” stated GracePointe Administrator Megan Novell. “The night brought back memories for several residents who grew up and raised their own families on a farm. It’s so neat to hear them reminiscing for weeks after the event.”
