The Gazette recently asked its readers for pictures of their proms from years gone by and they were happy to oblige! Many who responded are now married to their high school sweethearts and look back fondly on their proms.
“Way back then we were crazy about proms, and went to five of them — together!” said Pamela Clark.
Patrick and Catherine (Carson) Williams have been married for 36 years and have seven children and 13 grandchildren. “We began dating in the 10th grade and have been together ever since,” Patrick said.
Some, such as Bob and Peg Mumau who have been married for 53 years, are now attending the grand march at their grandchildren’s schools.
While the photos have faded and styles have come and gone, the memories have endured.
“It was a great time decorating and a lasting memory,” the Mumaus said.
