Rotterdam prom celebrates senior citizens

ROTTERDAM, N.Y. – Senior citizens in Rotterdam will be dancing away at a prom Friday night.

The event originally started as a way to offer a special event for veterans who missed their own high school proms due to military service. Now the prom is organized by Mohonasen High School students.

This year’s theme is Garden Gatsby and will include a live jazz band. About 200 local senior citizens are expected to attend.

The event starts at 6 p.m. at Draper Middle School in Schenectady.
