TIFTON -- Whether you like the sound of the big band, doo wop, rock and roll or some of it all, you are sure to enjoy dining, dancing and socializing at the Kiwanis Club's Senior Prom from 7-9 p.m. July 27 at the Leroy Rogers Center on 2nd Street.

Cherie Yamnitz, Kiwanis member and event organizer, said the dance is in its third year and was organized as a way for the club to show appreciation to adults 50-years-old or older who have supported fund raisers over the years.

Yamnitz has been collecting some memorabilia dating back to poodle shirts, T jackets, cheerleader skirts and pom poms and retired military dress uniforms. She hopes to collect more to display at the event.

"We like to show things from people who have played football or are in the military," Yamnitz said. I have some things, but not as many as I would like to have. I like to have something new that I haven't used for the past two years."

Yamnitz said participants are encouraged to bring high school yearbooks, pictures and other interesting memorabilia with them to the dance.

"People enjoy looking through those things and I will set up a table for everything," Yamnitz said.

Yamnitz said the event allows everyone to "get all dressed up." She said most men wear a jacket and women wear dresses or pant suits, but some men wear tuxedos.

Everything at the event is free, including a food buffet, music provided by Nick McClelland with After Hours Productions and prom photographs of couples provided by Jay Oliver Photography.

Anyone who wishes to loan items to Yamnitz for display at the event can reach her at 382-4227.
