It’s a senior prom, but it’s not for seniors in high school.

The 21st annual Senior Citizens Prom gives Hempfield Area School District residents 65 and over the chance to relive their high school days.

“It’s just a wonderful event for seniors to come out and see people they haven’t seen in awhile,” said event organizer Natalie Fetterman.

Scheduled for April 27, seniors can enjoy a basket raffle, photo booth and disc jockey.

Originally a semi-formal event held in Hempfield Area High School’s cafeteria, the prom has grown to between 200 and 300 people each year.

The event costs $10 per person and will be held in the Hempfield Area High School Field House from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

A registration form can be found on the Hempfield Area School District website.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
