The prom featured a “Big Game” theme – attendees were encouraged to dress up in their favorite team’s colors – and live music from the Bob Martinson Band, lunch, dancing, as well as prizes and cakes donated by local businesses. OFA Director Todd Tancredi crowned Joe and Pat Broun, of Fishkill, as the Duchess and Duke of the Prom, respectively.

Fishkill’s Joe and Pat Broun were crowned the Duke and Duchess of the Dutchess County Office for the Aging’s 2018 Senior Prom.
