Senior-Dance2013Last month, at the Verona Community Center, 50 of Verona’s senior citizens and 25 Verona High School students enjoyed a lovely afternoon of dinner and dancing together.

The First Annual Verona High School Intergenerational Prom was the brainchild of Judy Szybist, VHS Jazz Choir director, and was created to strengthen the connection between school and community and give each generation the chance to gain a new sense of respect, understanding, and compassion for one another.

There were group songs, solos and duets by the VHS Jazz Choir, dancing (including a conga line), dinner and the selection of a prom king and queen.

Many local businesses and restaurants, as well as the Verona Community Center, donated space, food and supplies free of charge to all attendees. Donors included Holsman Physical Therapy Center, DiPaolo’s Bakery, Healthy Food Asian Cuisine, Esposito’s Pizzaria, Trattoria Bella Gente, Costco, ShopRite, Richfield Regency, Giuseppe’s Pizzaria, Frank Anthony’s, Calandra’s, Eight Hills Caterers, Towne Scoop, Eagle Rock Lanes, Camille’s Floral Boutique, Foodtown and Jack’s Cafe.
