CUMMING, Ga. – The second annual Senior Citizens’ Prom was held on Feb. 15 and hosted by Girl Scout Sarah Bock at Forsyth County’s Sexton Hall.

The Valentine-themed dance featured the Sounds of Sawnee Jazz Band and raffle prizes donated by Barnes and Noble Books, Coldwater Creek and Norman’s Landing.

South Forsyth High School students, members of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s and Fire departments and Sexton Hall staff volunteered their time to assist with the festivities.

Bock hosted the first prom last May as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award project.

Currently, 5 percent of eligible Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award annually.

Bock will receive her award next month at the Girl Scout Gold Award ceremonies at the Fox Theatre.
