Wausau senior citizens treated to Prom fashion show


Wausau seniors are getting ready for the prom, but it's probably not the seniors you are thinking of.

Senior citizens over at Mount View Care Center were treated to a fashion show Wednesday morning... as a precursor to the big dance.

Dresses for the residents were donated by members of the community, and they were escorted by DC Everest High School Key Club members.

The staff says activities like this mean a lot to these young souls.

"One of our ladies... she actually cried when we gave her the dress, and it was a $9 dress that we got from Goodwill, so how can you really put a price on that?" says Activity Therapist Cagney Martin.

The activities continue all this week.

The Prom Court will go out to dinner on Thursday.

The dance... complete with a live band... takes place Friday afternoon.
