Prairie Lakes Health Campus senior citizens experience prom


By Anna Skinner

On May 12, Prairie Lakes Health Campus senior residents were able to experience prom.

Life Enrichment Director Nadine Graham said she planned the prom for her residents since some had never experienced it, as they attended high school during the Great Depression when high schools weren’t having proms, or for other reasons.

“It’s never too late to have a prom,” Graham said.

Attendees wore corsages and boutonnieres, received makeovers, took limo rides and had the opportunity to choose a suit or dress, Hors d’oeuvres and music also were available.

“It takes your mind off the pain,” resident Karen Lenze said, although she said she did attend her school’s prom.

“This is my first prom,” said resident Inabeth Peacock, who graduated from high school in 1941. “We didn’t have a prom when I graduated.”
