This year’s junior class began last fall on prom preparations by working food booths and concessions
By JERI DUNN
HHS Prom Advisor
This year’s junior class began last fall on prom preparations by working food booths and concessions—under the guidance of junior class advisor Paul Jamison—to make enough funds for this year’s prom. It will be held this upcoming weekend on Saturday, March 25, 2017.
The theme this year is “Written in the Stars” and features moons, stars, and decorations using the colors gold, silver, and dark blue. There will be lights of all kinds and special features for the couples’ photos and group photos.
Music will be provided by KHOOK’s deejays.
Grand March begins at 8:00 p.m., and the dance itself will continue until midnight. The doors will not open until 7:30 p.m. because we will just be finishing the group photos around 7:15 and will need to reset some of the decorations while the students go to the cafeteria for their breathalyzer tests and last-minute instructions. Once again, spectators will use the two small grey metal doors to the gymnasium on the upper east side, crossing the gravel to do so. There will be seating on the entire north side bleachers and on chairs on about one-third of the gym floor. Also, there will be two areas especially available for parents and family members to take photos as the couples wind their way down the pathway from the stage back out through the gym entry.
Janel Johnson Photography will be taking the couples’ individual photos at a specially designed area, special small group photos, and then class group photos featuring the stage.
The free annual pre-prom dinner for all the couples to enjoy is provided by the United Methodist Church located on Airport Road. Also, the junior parents have worked very hard to plan the annual after prom party in the armory, complete with food, games, and fantastic prizes, following the prom and providing a safe environment for all prom-goers, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Mr. Randy Burwick and Ms. Dunn will be spending all day on Friday with the juniors to decorate and organize the Roberts-Reinke Auditorium.
There is no charge for admission to this event, but we again ask for free-will donations at the door. The monies collected there will be added to the last two years’ collections and used for new trees on the south side of the school or for other beautification projects on the high school campus.
And, the hospital foundation will again be sending a donation to the junior class in payment for the decorations they will borrow and use for their Adult Prom on April 22nd. The foundation members will pick out the items they wish to use before the juniors tear the rest down and clean up, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Sunday.
Bring your cameras and be prepared to be amazed!
