One of Brick’s most heartwarming events of the year will return next month, and reservations are being accepted now.
The 2016 Senior Prom, which brings together the township’s high school students and senior citizens, is scheduled for Saturday, May 7.
National Honor Society students from Brick Township High School and Brick Memorial High School will come together to organize the ninth annual event with the township Recreation Department for a memorable afternoon brunch.
The annual event provides a fun way for Brick’s students, staff, and senior citizens to enjoy food, dancing and fun, Mayor John Ducey said.
“This is a truly special event,” said Mayor John G. Ducey. “Seeing members of our Senior Community interacting with our students and young residents personifies the best of Brick Township.”
The prom will feature music by the Sentimental Journey Big Band. The event includes a special brunch menu compliments of many generous restaurants from Brick Township. Seniors, staff, and students are encouraged to wear prom-appropriate attire and to bring their dancing shoes for musical performances and student talent. In keeping with prom tradition, students will count the submitted ballots and announce the 2016 Senior Citizen Prom King and Prom Queen before the last dance.
Those who wish to attend are asked RSVP their intentions by Friday, April 29 to Cindy Colantoni in the Brick Township Recreation Department by calling 732-262-1073. There are only 200 spots available. The event will be held at Lake Riviera Middle School, 171 Beaverson Boulevard, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Participants must be Brick residents.
