In rural America, a high school prom is no time for social distancing. So when Rossville High School couldn’t accommodate the 2020 spring prom because of Indiana’s lockdown rules, graduate Jayden Brown found an alternative venue: An upscale machine shed on Windy Lane Farms near Muberriy, Indiana, operated by his dad Ty and grandfather Hal Brown. Here’s the scene last night:

Not many proms have decorations like an antique Chevy truck, Case IH 450 tracked tractor and flags waving from the unloading auger of a huge red combine.
Here’s a quick picture story of a prom night made extra-memorable for those grads — and for all of us living in the countryside.
Especially for grandfathers, like Hal and me.
This proved an appealing photo-op background for guys and their dates
Another memorable setting for graduate pictures — a completely restored 1950s Chevrolet straight truck
