LHS students to enjoy ‘A Night in Paris’
This year’s Lovell High School Junior-Senior Prom attendees are going to spend “A Night in Paris” – the theme of this year’s event to take place Friday night.
The night will start off with the grand march at the Hyart Theatre. Attendees must report from 8:50 to 9 p.m., and the march starts at 9:20 p.m., according to junior class sponsor Caleb Sanders. The class is asking a $1 dollar donation from spectators, which will be used to pay for the after prom party.
Junior and senior royalty will be announced and crowned following the grand march.
Nobody will be allowed inside the Hyart until the Friday night movie is finished, Sanders said.
After the grand march, attendees will be escorted to the high school, where they will pose for photos and enjoy their dance in the multi-purpose room to the music of DJ Marcus Sanchez from Worland. The dance will go from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. The cost is $8 per couple and $5 dollars for a single.
After the dance, there will be a post-prom party on the LHS football practice field from 1:30 to 3:30 a.m. Tickets may be purchased for $10 in advance or $25 at the entrance gate. The party will feature games, glow in the dark paintball, pizza and pop.
Partially funded by the North Big Horn Health Coalition and Lovell educators, only LHS juniors and seniors and their dates will be allowed to attend the party.
Senior sponsors for this year are Tawnya Teter, Cindy Asay, Samantha Christensen and Josh Sanders. Junior sponsors are Caleb Sanders, Deborah May, Bret George and Jeny Gardner.
