FRANKFORT N.Y.- Saturday night was special at Frankfort-Schuyler High School, as the Frankfort-Schuyler Friends of Rachel held a Senior Prom.
The event was not for High School Seniors however.
Students at Frankfort-Schuyler wanted to have a prom for Herkimer County Seniors ages 60 and older.
There was dancing, as well as food and drinks available.
There also was a DJ playing music, and taking requests.
The Frankfort-Schuyler friends of Rachel Club is an organization that was started in honor of Rachel Joyce Scott, who was a victim of the Columbine massacre.
Event Organizers say this was a great way to get the community together, just like Rachel did.
“She lived a life of faith and she wanted to join her community together and live by that set of values, and we wanted to represent those values here this evening, and make sure that our community is cohesive and cooperative as possible.” said Rachel Olson the Friends of Rachel Club Advisor at Frankfort-Schuyler.
“It’s an amazing outcome. I didn’t know that this many people would show up.” said Sofia Randazzo, The President of the Friends of Rachel Club at Frankfort-Schuyler. “We sold around 60 tickets but of course the tickets were free, so people came just from hearing about it. They didn’t grab tickets or anything, so yeah I think it’s a great turnout and everyone seems to be having so much fun.” Randazzo added.
Dozens of people turned out for the event.
