A Reunion During a Pandemic? Back in May, we realized the bad times called for a good thing. So, a few of us began to plan a “Senior” Prom for our classmates. On zoom!

Eager to enjoy the party, thirty-seven adventurous guests (9 of them “dates”) began signing on 45 minutes before the official start time. The talking and laughing were nonstop.

At 8:00, after a brief welcome and overview, DJ Gatsby began spinning the music we grew up with, a repertoire curated by a classmate who had been in the music business for many years. And several weeks before the event, celebrity makeup artist and clean beauty expert, Katey Denno, uploaded a video on tips to look your best on Zoom.

Adding to the fun was a slideshow of photos from our school years that brought back wonderful memories.

Another key part of the event included several small-group chats where the topics “catching up,” “hobbies,” “bucket lists,” and “family, kids/grandkids,” kick-started the conversation.

Closing time, 10:00, came sooner than anyone expected. Several prom-goers stayed on for more talk.

Here are some simulated screen shots to give you a flavor, a sense, an idea, of the evening and that a “virtual” party is both possible and enjoyable.
