Intergenerational Spring Fling a Huge Success!

Spring Fling - Dancing 3

This past Friday, more than 100 Melrose seniors were treated to a wonderful night of dinner, dancing, and entertainment courtesy of a dedicated group of Melrose High School students with the support of the City of Melrose and many community partners.

Spring Fling - ServingThe 3rd Annual Intergenerational Spring Fling Dance was organized by Melrose High School juniors Isabel Bates and Camryn Pfeiffer, who along with more than 20 student volunteers, hosted an incredible event to celebrate and strengthen the connection between each generation.

“This event has become one of the highlights of the year in Melrose. Camryn and Isabel put a tremendous amount of work into making this a memorable night for so many seniors and they certainly achieved that goal. To see the students and seniors engaging with each other and having a great time together creates memories that neither will soon forget.” said Mayor Rob Dolan.

“I love that this event brings together youth and senior citizens in the community for an unforgettable evening of dancing and music. Bridging the gap between generations is something I feel passionate about and this dance does just that.” added Camryn Pfeiffer.

Isabel Bates, co-organizer of the event added, “It was wonderful to see both teens and seniors dancing and having fun at our event. I believe bringing people together across different generations is important in our community.”
