“We met when we were 14 and 16, and we’ve been married for 67 years,” said Fredda Maisel while she and her husband, Dr. Harris Maisel, cut a rug at Valle Verde Retirement Home’s second annual Senior Prom.

The Maisels (above), along with about 60 other residents and staff members, enjoyed the Golden Oldies–themed event, which featured gold-encrusted corsages and boutonnieres donated by McDermott-Crocket Mortuary, live music, prom photos, and SBCC students who gave their time to do the women’s hair and makeup. The grand finale of the event was the crowning of prom king Benny Plambek and queen Shirley Sayre.
