Attention Perris Senior Citizens!
Tickets to the 5th Annual Perris Senior Prom are going fast.
The May 19 prom is a masquerade ball, giving participants the chance to don a mask and become a character out of history like a Roman soldier or a 18th Century aristocrat or a fictional icon like the Phantom of the Opera.
Half of the 300 available tickets were distributed the first day they became available. And the rest are expected to move fast.
“Our Senior Prom is highly anticipated by all of our members and many others in the senior community,” said Recreation Supervisor Cynthia Mendez, who once again is organizing the 2018 celebration. “Our seniors really enjoy dressing, dancing and reminiscing. You can see the joy in their faces. Our staff has fun because the seniors have fun.”
The Senior Prom takes place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Bob Glass Gymnasium on the City Hall Campus, 101 North D Street. The evening is topped off with the crowning of the Senior Prom King and Queen.
The event is free for Perris seniors (folks older than 50) with membership at the Senior Center; $10 for residents who aren’t members and $15 for non-residents.
The Senior Prom is part of the City’s ongoing Live Well Perris healthy-eating active-living campaign. Following a catered dinner, Senior Prom goers are invited to hit the dance floor to get their muscles going and burn off some calories. Musical entertainment will be provided by Doc Rocket.
Members of the City’s Youth Advisory Committee once again will help cater the event. For additional information, contact the Perris Senior Center at 951-657-7334.
