Prom Will Go on Without School Sponsorship

TRUCKIN’: Seniors pose for a picture at the 2019 prom. Aubree Pierson said, “ I love hanging out with my friends and getting all dressed up. It is especially fun to get ready with all my best friends before.” The group hopes to recreate the picture at this year’s prom.

Covid-19 has affected many traditional school activities but none more so than dances.

Last year everyone felt sad about the cancellation of prom when school closed due to the virus outbreak, and even though school has been in session for the last seven months, students have still not been able to have any dances.

As prom time rolls around again, some amazing moms, teachers, and locals intend to make prom happen this year despite the inability of the school to sponsor it.

Get excited! There will be a prom! Spread the word. The non-school sponsored prom will take place on April 17 at the fairgrounds in Afton. Although time has not yet been decided, organizers anticipate the dance running from 7:30 pm-11:30 pm.

This will be a boy’s choice dance, so boys, get asking! The price will be $40 a couple. The prom is still in need of a theme, and organizers want input from students. Please vote here  for what theme you would like to help make this night unforgettable.

Masks aren’t required but, of course, participants can wear one if desired. As common sense dictates, those feeling unwell are asked to skip the event, but organizers would love to see everyone there!
