PROM FOR CENTER'S SENIORS

Youth from the Pella 1st Ward of the Oakley Idaho Stake held their own "Senior Prom" recently at the Burley Care Center. About 45 teenagers spent an hour getting to know the residents and then pinned corsages, made by the young women in the ward, onto female residents. Music was turned on and the dance began. Those who were able to get up filled the dance floor.

Residents in wheelchairs were also included as youth rolled them to the beat of the music. A prom king and queen from the center were crowned. The supervisor of the home said that it had been years since she had seen such smiles on the faces of some residents.
