COA’s ‘Senior Prom’ a success

The DeKalb County Council on Aging held its Senior Prom on April 16 from 5 -8 p.m. The Fyffe Senior Center was used to host the event where there was live music, food and dancing.

Emily McCamy, director of DeKalb County Transportation and Council on Aging, said there were 115 attendees and 20 staff and volunteers that participated. There were many donations that made this night possible, as well.

“We would like to thank Bruce’s Foodland for the delicious cake they donated,” said McCamy, “and Kilgore Pharmacy for the cases of water they donated to keep us hydrated during our fun night of dancing.”

The refreshments also included chicken salad croissants, fresh fruit, chips and punch.

The Tri-State Area Homeschoolers and Friends organization donated their, “Alice in Wonderland” decorations, and the Fyffe Senior Center and the Line Dancing group helped decorate.

The local band “Still kickiN” performed for the dancing couples throughout the night.

McCamy said this year’s Senior Prom was a success, and emphasized their gratitude for the donations and helpers that made it possible.
