We have had so much fun this year with our 50s and 60s Sock Hops, but we want to raise the level even higher for the last event of the spring season in the MountainView Ballroom. Therefore, we are celebrating our life in SaddleBrooke with a Senior Prom on April 28! Oh, Yeah! A Prom for us, without any of the teenage angst. We will attend with the same sweetheart we have had for__? years. No worrying will he or won’t he ask me to the prom?

There will be a buffet with pork Milanese, roast turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, tossed salad, and one more veggie, carrot cake! Yum. If you have dietary restrictions, make arrangements when you get your tickets. Doors and the cash bar will open at 5:00 pm, the Buffet will be served at 5:30 p.m. and 3 Jacks and a Julie will play from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Even the band is excited about playing for our prom!

3 Jacks and a Julie will play many of our favorite songs from the 50s and 60s; The Everly Brothers, Elvis, the Beach Boys and Patsy Cline, to name a few. The band is so talented, but their music speaks for them and I won’t rave here. When they play Unchained Melody there isn’t a woman listening who doesn’t want to be on the dance floor in her partner’s arms, swaying to the music. It happens at every dance; it is the one song guaranteed to have everyone out on the dance floor. And the band does it well!

Ladies, we can dress as elegantly as we like and our escorts can dress—well, you decide. Each of us will be the prom Queen with her King on this night. Return to the days of our youth and the songs we danced to; let’s have fun at a Senior Prom. Tickets are $36 per person, on sale now at the MountainView Office.

I hope we see you there.
