JOPLIN, MO.--- More than a hundred seniors attend their prom, only these seniors graduated high school decades ago. The Area Agency on Aging hosted the 6th Annual Senior Prom in Joplin. Lunch was provided and the seniors got a chance to dance the afternoon away. Organizers say it's a fun event for seniors to attend since it gets them out of the house and gives them a good workout.

"Great place to be. Be able to dance and be with other people, your friends and meet other people. It's a great experience," said Tommy Thompson, Senior. 

Organizers say this prom broke regular attendance records.
