Greg Martin and Rita Ramsey were named king and queen during the last Old School Senior Prom offered by Young Men United. This year’s prom is this Saturday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m.

Young Men United will be offering a night to remember this Saturday, Nov. 13, at Bernard Community Center.

“We’re hosting an Old School Senior Prom on Saturday at 7 p.m.,” said Young Men United vice president Ella Richmond. “It’s going to be a lot of fun. Put on your dancing shoes and join us for a night of dancing and music. Dress to impress or wear your Sunday best.”

A prom king and prom queen will be selected. Those honorary titles were bestowed on Greg Martin and Rita Ramsey in 2019. A prom was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic. 

Proms are an end-of-the-year formal dance. This prom has an added benefit of being a fundraiser for the continued restoration and preservation of the Bernard gym. Single tickets are $15, while couples are $25. The event is for ages 30 and up.

“We’re going to have a fashion show and door prizes,” said Richmond. “We always have a lot of fun.”

Bernard Community Center is located at 103 Bernard Drive. The dance begins at 7 p.m. and concludes at 11 p.m.
