PHOTOS: Prom fare gets cultural flair

Seeking to honor the culture of many of the school district’s students, Alta Gracia Abarua and Luz Maria Abarua prepare red beans and rice with roast pork for the Turners Falls High School prom held at the Northfield Golf Club on Friday night. Jimena de Pareja, the school district’s liaison to Spanish-speaking families, helped coordinate delivery of the food.
