As you probably know, prom in Racine is unlike prom anywhere else. Since 1953, Racine Founder’s Rotary Post Prom has been a tradition embedded into the city. Whether you attended in 1960 or if you attended within the past couple years, chances are you have memories from that night. If you were lucky, you may have even gone more than once.
To celebrate this rich piece of Racine, the Racine County Eye is asking to see your prom photos and stories from that night.
