Senior Prom

May 16. 2015

Senior’s Promenade Dinner-Dance Brought to You by Always Best Care Senior Services of Central CT and October Kitchen.

This semi-formal dinner-dance will be held at East Catholic High School on May 16.

MANCHESTER- Put on those dancing shoes and get ready to hit the floor!

On May 16, October Kitchen Chef Service of Manchester will team up with Always Best Care Senior Services of Central Connecticut, Inc. and East Catholic High School to bring local seniors and baby boomers the inaugural Senior’s Promenade Dinner-Dance.

This semi-formal dinner dance – held at East Catholic High School and served by the students there – will celebrate the important contributions of the many generations who have made our community great.

The event is part of Always Best Care’s ongoing “Make a Senior Smile” campaign.

“We love this community and we are so excited to have the opportunity to get involved in this way,” said Kristine Lajeunesse, owner of Always Best Care. “It is going to be a fantastic evening of fun, food, dancing, and good company.”

Paul Finney, owner of October Kitchen, wants to make a mark in the community and have some fun with friends and clients.

“We are so grateful to be in Manchester – the “City of Village Charm” – that we want to share with our neighbors and sponsoring partner businesses and organizations,” he said.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Manchester Area Community of Churches.

“Seniors and boomers are special to us at October Kitchen and we’ve partnered with Always Best, who also appreciate our seniors and boomers,” said Finney. “We saw this as an opportunity to make a big splash and have some fun and give a little something back to the community. MACC does so many great things in the community and we wanted to help support them and raise awareness of their mission.” 

Doors will open at 4 p.m. and the family style dinner will begin at 4:30 p.m. Dancing will begin around 5:30 p.m. and will end at 7 p.m. Dinner will be served by some of the clubs and sports teams from East Catholic High School, and the golden oldies and hits of the 1950s and 1960s will be spun by MonMor Productions.

Complimentary prom photos will be taken of the guests – in their finest semi-formal and formal wear. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed – or the most appropriately dressed – from their own era and year, and there will also be prizes for the best and most flamboyant dancers. Monaco Ford is going to bring a new 2015 Mustang and a vintage Mustang to take pictures with. Let’s take a roll down memory lane!

All in attendance are encouraged to share what their time was like by bringing photographs and snapshots, good or bad. The Senior’s Promenade will have a collectible program for the night with stories and pictures and anecdotes about the community and its history.

Reservations are required as this event will be limited to 150 guests. To reserve your complimentary ticket, call 860-533-0588 or visit for more information.

We are currently looking for donations for prizes, and sponsorships, and donations of items for the event. Flowers, vintage memorabilia decorations, and pictures of Manchester are also needed. Program sponsors get full-page program inserts for $300 and are encouraged to include a picture and biography of their growth and legacy in the community. Half-page sponsorships are available for $150. April 30 is the deadline for sponsorship.
