Senior citizen prom set for next Saturday

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit’s second annual senior citizen’s prom is Jan. 14, but Summit High School teacher James Smith doesn’t know how many people to plan for because of a glitch in his voicemail system.Smith, whose class organized the 1950s rock-and-roll themed prom, only received six messages from his phone when he returned from the holiday break. Last year at this time, he’d heard from 90 people who were planning to attend the party. He’s asking those who have already called to RSVP again, as well as anyone else interested in attending.Smith’s character education/service learning class organizes one major service project every semester. The prom was born last year during a class discussion about how to improve teenagers’ image while interacting with the community.If last year’s prom is any indicator – more than 100 people showed up – then this year’s festivities should be equally as enjoyable.The free event begins with dinner at 5:30 p.m. at Dillon Community Church, followed by dancing. R.S.V.P. or confirm your reservation to Smith at (970) 547-9311, ext. 1310.
