  • The school year is coming to a close but remembrances of good times still linger. For many, those memories last decades. But then, after all, who can forget an Ashland High School prom?
    Dale A. Monroe (Class of 1960) attended the 1959 prom with Linda Rae Barker (Class of 1961), whom he had been dating for a year. They became a couple when Dale asked Linda to dance at a Methodist youth fellowship party in 1958. She was 15 and he was a 16-year-old driving a 1957 Chevy. And they have been together ever since.
    Linda remembers Dale's everyday fashion sense was casual — white T-shirts and denim jeans in which he advised friends "to tuck the pant legs under and never let your mom wash them." But on prom night, he was swank in a dark suit and boutineer. Linda, who has dresses made for her, some by her mother, wore a glamorous sleeveless gown and a giant corsage.
