News From Masters
Nearly 50 elderly residents danced and sang with Masters seniors during the Seniors 4 Seniors Prom on Tuesday, June 6 in the Fonseca Center’s Sharon Room.
With a theme of “Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,” the guests were treated to 1960s-era music and a dinner during the event, a senior class MISH project. The seniors partnered with the Dobbs Ferry Senior Center to organize the prom.
“The senior MISH officers led the event,” said Director of Community Service Amy Atlee, referring to Chairs Samantha Coffey and Thomas Davoren and Vice-Chairs Oliver Clayton-Fernandes and Darryl Frank. Many other seniors also pitched in to make the prom a success, Ms. Atlee said.
She also noted that Masters’ service learning program has a longstanding relationship with the Dobbs Ferry Senior Center.
During the event, the students presented Ms. Atlee with a large cake and wished her good luck. Ms. Atlee is retiring at the end of this school year after working at Masters since 1985. She has been the Director of Community Service for the past 20 years, and previously served in many capacities, including as a health education teacher and Associate Director in the Admission Office.
