On Saturday night, GCRC hosted its 2nd annual prom at the Calhoun Convention Center. This year’s theme was “The Time of Your Life” and it was such a treat to see everyone dressed up in their gowns and suits, dancing and laughing, and having a blast together.

Each year, we crown a prom king and queen, and we also recognize each individual for his or her contribution to the agency with awards honoring character excellence. We handed out certificates for traits like “Gentle”, “Courageous”, “Funny”, and “Compassionate” and a number of others. We want our individuals to know how much we cherish them and, most importantly, that they each have something important to contribute to our organization and the world.
Our beautiful centerpieces!

We enjoyed a lovely dinner of grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, and buttered rolls with lots of dessert options! Red velvet cake was a big hit.
We want to thank everyone who came out to celebrate our prom this year, and we hope you’ll come back again in 2015!
P.S. More photos to come!
Most high school students get to attend prom at least once in their lives. They spend weeks planning what they’ll wear, where they’ll have dinner, and what kind of flowers to buy. They get all dressed up in gowns and tuxedos and, years later, they can look back on that night and reminisce, hopefully about all the fun they had together.
For many of our individuals, prom was never a reality. But, now, GCRC is proud to host an annual prom so everyone can have the opportunity to feel beautiful (or handsome) and celebrate a night of fun and laughter, food and dancing! This Saturday, May 17th, we’ll be hosting our annual GCRC prom and our theme is “The Time of Your Life”. We had a wonderful time last year and the votes are being tallied for Homecoming Queen and King as I’m typing these words. We’re also excited that we’ll be announcing awards for every individual from GCRC! We invite you to come join us as we celebrate one another and the progress we’ve made as an agency this year.
Tickets are just $8.50 per person and will go towards your dinner (which is sure to be delicious!). Doors open at 5 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. For more information, please call our office at 706-629-2987.
We hope to see you there!
