MISH Treats Local Seniors to Annual Prom

Local elderly residents donned leis and enjoyed an evening of dinner, conversation and dancing with Masters students during the Hawaiian-themed Seniors 4 Seniors Prom on Tuesday, May 28, in the Doc Wilson Hall.

The event was organized by the senior class MISH officers: Ian Accetta, Nana Yaa Asante, Jenna Bosshart and Michael D'Angelo; Dena Torino, Director of Community Service; Bonni Arbore, Assistant to the Director of Community Service; and the Dobbs Ferry Senior Center.

While the annual event is a fun evening for all involved, Torino noted that the benefits go deeper than simply entertainment: “There is so much to learn about engaging with people that have different life experiences and have different wisdom and knowledge to share. There’s a real exchange of advice, of wisdom, and of knowledge.”
