Rotterdam prom joins students and seniors

"They've [the seniors] really got some moves," said Chloe Hester, 17, who chaired the event. "We watch them dance, and we most definitely get better ourselves."

Hester said students look forward to the event all year. Students gathered before the event to decorate and set up the tables and chairs.

Students also served dinner to those in attendance and arranged for entertainment and door prizes.

For Tony Fusco, 80, and his wife, Terry, the night was particularly special.

The Fuscos attended their high school prom together more than 60 years ago at Mount Pleasant High School in Schenectady.

"It reminds us of that night," said Fusco, who helped coordinate the event. "We like it every year.""
