Prom: a busy time for law enforcement, local florists

Students from Scottsbluff and Gering High Schools are dancing the night away as both schools are celebrating prom tonight.
And local florists are breathing a temporary sigh of relief as one of their busiest times of the year is over. 

Florists have been rushing to get all their flowers ordered and corsages finished for both school's prom tonight. 

Peggy Ernst, manager of Flowers on Broadway, says for as little as they are, there is a tremendous amount of work that goes into each corsage.

"It takes a couple weeks, or even a little bit longer actually to figure out what flowers to order, colors, style, all of the 'bling' as the kids call it now, in the corsages, which they do like. There's a lot of work putting one together, they're very time consuming and we always try to make them extra special."
And as the florists' work has wrapped for this prom season, local law enforcement's work is just beginning. 

Officers will be out on extra patrol tonight to ensure roads and motorists are safe. 

School Resource Officer James Todd says a number of presentations are put on before prom night, to make sure students ate safe.
"We try to educate them here as well, as far as making the right choices and knowing some of the consequences of their actions if they don't make the right choices."
The prom dance will end at midnight tonight for both Gering and Scottsbluff High School.
