All senior citizens are invited to the 14th annual Seniors’ Senior Prom titled, “Under the Big Top” from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 23, 2017, at The Timbers of Shorewood, 1100 N. River Rd., Shorewood. The event is free and open to the public.

With a circus theme, the prom features “Under the Big Top” decorations, hors d’oeuvres, dancing, raffles and all the prom trimmings. A special moment will be the crowning of the king and queen.

In typical prom fashion, chaperones will be on hand making sure the night goes smoothly – only these chaperones are local teenagers. Several teens from Joliet Catholic Academy and Joliet West High School will serve as escorts and dance partners.

The Timbers of Shorewood’s Seniors’ Senior Prom has been an annual event for 14 consecutive years. That’s a lot of kings and queens through the years, many foxtrots and waltzes and most of all, a lot of happy dancers.

“We love to see our dance floor filled with people from the community as well as filled with our residents,” said Faith Varga, executive director of The Timbers. “The residents are already talking about who will be the new king and queen of the prom.”

Named the 2016 Business of the Year by the Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce, The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community that provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Residents whose needs may change are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate and compassionate care. Furnished apartments are also available for short-term stays.

The public is invited, and admission is free. Please RSVP to Terry at 815-779-6524 or for more information call 815-609-0669.
