First Annual Winter Formal Sponsored by School Musical
On December 2nd the school musical program hosted the first Winter Formal girls choice dance. The dance was held at the Afton community center. Tara Johnson, musical director, headed up the winter formal this year. Johnson shared, “There wasn’t a club that wanted to throw Sadies this year. I thought it would be a good fundraiser for the musical. I have always felt we should do a girls ask formal dance because every girl deserves the chance to dress up in a pretty dress for an elegant evening.”
The venue differed from the average school dance. Johnson shared, “I took the civic center, and I am glad that I did; it added an element of classiness to the evening. When students are out of school they act nicer. The venue looked super romantic.”
Senior Kolby Sperry said she is partial to dances where the boys ask because she is shy. Sperry sported a black velvet dress with gold jewelry. Sperry’s group participated in a scavenger hunt and had gingerbread house wars.
Riley Heward took Brody Hillyard to the formal. They had a fancy dinner in a cabin and played many games. Heward was in the largest group in attendance at the dance. She sported a classic white dress.
