Western attire complete with boots, leather and cowboy hats was the dress of the night at the annual Hartselle/Somerville Civitan Special Needs Prom. Guys and gals were ready to kick up on the dance floor when country music came through the speakers; many of those in attendance enjoyed themselves kicking into a line dance when certain songs were played.

This annual event was held at Nature’s Trail Church on Shoal Creek Rd. in Priceville. The church donates the use of their building each year for this event. This was however the first time to have a cowboy theme. But regardless most attendees for the prom had no problem at all being decked out for the event.

The clubs are able to put this event on each year through the fundraising events tthey sponsor. They are now in the process of holding their Vidalia onion sale, which is one of their best fundraisers each year.

The building is donated and Tim Walker provides the lighting and sound for the event each year free of charge. All club members bring food for the event as well.

Members mention this is a community event and those attending look forward to the event each year.

Glenda Rea, a Somerville Civitan, along with her husband Michael, chaired the event.

Those who attended really enjoyed themselves as was apparent by the smiles on their faces. Many stayed on the dance floor much of the night and really kicked it up when the Cha Cha slide was played and the Cupid Shuffle. These folks were there to have fun and hang out with each other. While family members looked on, they kept the dance floor hot and enjoyed the music, food, fun and fellowship.

The clubs put this event on each year to make sure the folks invited are able to have their own prom, where they can be themselves and have a good time.
