Special to the News
Many of Rockford’s and Coosa County’s older citizens enjoyed a special time set aside for them last Friday night.
The Town of Rockford hosted the “Forever Young” Senior Citizen Prom, and 75 individuals came out to enjoy their own special senior prom and dance the night away.
As a part of the festivities, Rockford residents Fred and Frankie Cousin won the Not-So-Newlywed Game, and a gift was given to them.
Spencer Hardy took to the dance floor many times throughout the night, but the highlight was him showing the youth and seniors alike how to do the electric slide, much to everyone’s delight.
Ivy Creek Photography took photos of the night for free, and those will be sent to Town Hall. However, as of press time the town had not received those photos yet.
Youths Kaden and Carter Tindall, Olivia White, Karissa Crowe, Marcus Castleberry, and Ruby Burks helped entertain and danced the night away.
Carlotta and Adam Bunker helped serve refreshments, along with town employees and Rebecca Biernesser. Refreshments were provided by Susan Rodgers, Lynn Anne Castleberry, Shirley Ogle, Lesle Nelson, Infinity Coffee Shop, Doris Raison, and the Coosa County Sheriff’s Office.
“We really enjoyed putting on this great event for our seniors and look forward to hosting others in the future,” Rockford Mayor Scott White said. “They all seemed to have a great time and expressed how nice everything looked.”
