Lufkin senior citizens make lasting memories during prom night

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Thursday night Lufkin seniors took a step back in time and on to the dance floor for the first ever Senior Circle prom.

"It brings back a lot of memories for going to a prom," said Judy Kocar, Prom Attendee.

 The prom was a celebration of the Senior Circle's five year anniversary.

"I'm just ready to get out and dance," said Beverly Morrow, Prom Attendee.

Coordinator Christie Maddux says for five years Senior Circle has promoted living a healthy lifestyle for men and women over the age of 50.

"Anyone that chooses to stay active after 50 and travel and be around their peers, that is a great opportunity to stay young enjoy laughter and laughter is the best medicine," said Christie Maddux, Senior Prom Coordinator.

Throughout the year, Senior Circle hosts various trips, cooking demonstrations and social activities to help senior citizens in the community stay active.

 Prom attendee Judy Kocar says her and her husband look forward to monthly activities.

"We were just did the luncheon last week and we go on a lot of trips with Senior Circle," said Kocar.

 "We can all get together and do things and it just helps a lot older people get out of the house," said Morrow.

Maddux believes a fun filled night of food, music and dancing is the perfect way to bring everyone together.

"We have people that have been married for 50 years, people here that have never been married , people here that actually came to meet someone. So If people can gain new friendships out of this it was a success," said Maddux.

And enjoy a prom night, they'll never forget.

"It makes me feel young again," said Morrow.
