Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Saugus High School students alongside senior citizens hosted a Senior Prom at the Senior Center last Friday afternoon.

  Prom Queen Millie Doucette, who is a resident of 60 years, has been coming to the center since it opened. She ran the Wonderland Ballroom and Roller World skating rink.

  “The staff felt she was deserving of it, and she is real ladylike,” Prom King William Mahaney, of Somerville, said. “She said it was love at first sight.”

  They met six years ago at the Senior Center. Doucette said the Senior Center is “the place to be.”

  Saugus resident Julia Reed, who moved to town from Everett, said she had a fun time with seniors, adding that you’re never too young to dance.
