The Senior Citizens Ball

A soft breeze flowed through the doors that were held open, waiting for guests to pour in. On Saturday May 4th in the Early Childhood School, students were busy working– but not on school work.

The task at hand was preparing for and helping with Victor’s annual Senior Citizens Ball. Key Club advisor Buttram says the club has supported the dance for “At least ten years..” But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. “It takes all of the Key Club members doing at least something to make sure that it goes on without a hitch…”.

Key Club members volunteered to help decorate, get supplies, serve food and drinks, greet and mingle with the guests, and clean up. Stars and balloons were carefully placed throughout the cafeteria. Snacks to munch on, comforting main dishes, refreshments, and delightful desserts were served throughout the night. This year, the meals were provided by Shelly’s Cafe.

In Key Club, students volunteer to help with different events in the community. Emma Mastrangelo is one member of the club who helped out that night. “Working with other Key Club members taught me how to work in a diverse workspace with many different strong personalities.”.

Not only is the club a great way to help others, but it is also a great place to meet new people, learn how to interact better with others, and spend quality time with friends.

“[Emma’s] favorite part was hanging out with [her] girls Dani and Siera, but second to that was the cute old couple dancing to all the love songs.” Buttram’s favorite part was “Seeing people come in from the community.” Grandparents, neighbors, and others came together for a good time.

Chatter was constant throughout the night. Catchy songs played in the background, some soft, some jazzy, and a few that got people up on their feet to dance more than others. Can’t Help Falling in Love by the well-known singer Elvis Presley was one of these songs. 

Just outside of the cafeteria, a photographer was set up waiting for people to smile for the camera. Memories were captured and pictures were handed out to admire.

Although not too many people danced throughout the night, some stood up to share a moment with their other half during this song for a slow dance. They swayed softly, like flowers in the breeze. Whether it was friends talking or couples dancing– the night was lively and admirable.
