Mr. Roosevelt Jones & Mrs. Annie Pearl Hill, former prom king and queen of Belle Glade
May 26, 2023 -Proms aren’t just for teenagers anymore! Senior citizens in Palm Beach County’s western communities looking for a fun-filled night out are invited to the Third Annual Glades Tri-Cities Senior Citizens Prom on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. at Rosenwald Elementary School in South Bay, FL. The theme is “A Night Out in Hollywood” and KTM and the prom committee are promising a night of glitz and glamour, including a red-carpet entrance, a delicious dinner catered by Sam King, music by DJ Clean, and entertainment by comedian Cynedra Blake. The Mayors of Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay will help in selecting the prom kings and queens for their cities and retired county commissioner/founder of Glades Lives Matter, Janet B.Taylor, will select the king and queen for Clewiston.
The event is free, thanks to funding from Healthier Glades and Palm Health Foundation, who are supporting the event as a way to benefit the mental health of senior citizens by bringing them together for social engagement. Seniors may register at any senior program in the Tri-Cities or find registration forms at City Hall in Belle Glade, Pahokee, and South Bay.
