Think boats. Think water. Think fish. Think lots of pretty girls and handsome youth during Chase County Schools’ (CCS) prom this weekend.
“Rolling in the Deep” is the theme of this year’s prom, to be held this Saturday.
The evening begins with dinner at St. Pat’s Friendship Hall. Super Foods is catering the event, with the dessert supplied by parents.
The promenade of students will begin at 7 p.m. at the Wellington School gym, so sponsor Carol Hess advises parents and the public to start coming about 6:30 p.m. to be seated.
The king and queen will be crowned following the promenade, which precedes the dance.
Ally Vrbas and Bridget Langin are co-chair of the prom.
After prom party
About 100 people or businesses have donated items to the Post Prom Party, which will be held from about 11:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. in the CCS auditorium.
Chairman Trish Oxford said the party will be slightly different this year.
Students will sign in, and then have to sign out if they leave. They will not then be allowed back in.
Games will include the casino games of the past, plus laser tag, obstacle courses, black line dodgeball and Wii.
The auction of donated items has been changed to a drawing, Oxford noted. Televisions, mini-fridges, tools, gift certificates for hair products and cuts and many more items will be in the drawing.
There will be no breakfast this year. Oxford said no one volunteered to man the meal.
