Meadow Hill Hosts 2nd Annual “Senior” Prom for Local Senior Residents
On Friday, June 8, Meadow Hill GEMS students and staff hosted their 2nd annual "senior" prom for local senior community residents. Food and supplies were generously donated by school and community organizations in an effort to support the school’s initiative to continue to give back to the community. Over 100 senior citizens were served a delicious dinner of baked chicken, potatoes, green beans, coleslaw and cornbread. Students and staff members also generously volunteered their time during this community service event in an effort to continue to make a difference in the lives of others. Over the years, Meadow Hill has made a conscious and dedicated effort to provide community service opportunities for its middle school students. Throughout the evening many celebrations were acknowledged and helped celebrated by students including birthdays and anniversaries. Several hundred dollars in prizes were also raffled off to a very excited group of winners. Through the collaborative effort of all, seniors were able to enjoy a fun filled evening of dinner and dancing.
