WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, Ohio -- If you've ever been to prom you know there's a few must haves, like the dress, the music and of course the dancing.

Avenue Care and Rehab Center had all of those things plus much more for its senior prom. The dance was held on Friday in Warrensville Heights.

"Oh this is lovely. I didn`t expect it to be so nice like this," said prom-goer, Alethine Glaros.

She was one of many to get glammed up for the big event. She said she never got the chance to go to prom, and a lot of others didn't either. That's part of the reason Activities Director Sierra Adams decided to throw the dance.

"I just thought it would be something different. Something that they would remember. Something fun and I just thought and it`s spring and the high school seniors are going to prom so why can`t our seniors go to prom too?" said Adams.

She said they did all the decorations themselves and even made the corsages. They also had a prom court, and one of the people on it was Beulah Peyton.

She's 107 years old.

She offered people out there a little advice on life: "Live the best you can. Be kind to other people and do unto them as you wish to be done by."
