Spring time is Prom time…
…for most high schools, and it’s one of those high school experiences that I think everyone should have. Getting dressed up, going out to dinner, and dancing the night away with your best friends…nothing says high school experience quite like it!
About a week ago, I had the opportunity to actually attend the Brainerd High School Prom, something I hadn’t done since my own, many moons ago! It was fun seeing all of the young people dressed up in their finest at the Grand March, and then watching them drop their purses and kick off their heels as they arrived at The NP Event Center to dance the night away. I was struck by the fact that even though so many things have changed since my time in high school, some things, like prom, are still very much the same. Yes, the preparation is a little more extravagant (getting your hair and makeup done? that wasn’t even a consideration in my time), and the clothes and meals are fancier and more expensive, but the fun of dancing and singing to your favorite songs with all of your closest friends is still the same. It’s a timeless tradition that doesn’t go out of style. As you know, for me, experience is a huge deal, and prom is one of those experiences that you will remember the rest of your life. Can you guess what else was similar to my high school days? The music! I heard at least three songs that were played during my own high school days..and you know what else? The kids knew every word by heart! Kinda makes this old 80’s girl proud. 🙂
The Pre-Prom Party
I spent time with a couple of my 2017 Senior Models and their friends before they headed off to Grand March. This fun loving group all traveled together in a RV driven by one of the parents – what a fun experience!
