Middle 6.7.2006

By Rick Racela

Crest Haven Nursing and Rehabilitation Center had its first “Senior Prom” on May 11.
Various groups and shops in the area donated prom gowns.
Adele’s Jeweled Treasures in Villas donated a number of beautiful gowns.
Jeannie and Bill Everly of Hart to Hart Florist in North Cape May also donated gowns. Hart to Hart has a program for local students, providing gowns to those who cannot afford prom attire.
Since the prom season just ended, they had some lovely gowns for Crest Haven Seniors. Hart to Hart also donated balloons for the event. 
Bryant Gloner of After Hours Formal Wear at the Shore Mall contributed tuxedos, complete with shoes and cummerbunds at no rental fee.
One of the residents told a story of how she had to drop out of high school to get a job, “It was the depression, you know.”
She went on to say, “I never got a chance to go to the prom and now I am going.”
One gentleman said, “I’ve never had a tuxedo on in my whole life.” The residents not only looked beautiful, they felt beautiful, too.
The affair included a formal dinner served by the Dietary Department and pictures taken under the flowered arbor created by the Recreation Department.
The room was decorated with stars and balloons and singer Lou Dottoli crooned the prom goers with old favorites.
