Last Saturday, Junior Prom was at the Glastonbury Country Club. Despite the cool breeze and muddiness of the green, everyone was still elated to be there.
Compared to years past, the attendance on the green was sparse due to the rain earlier in the day, but the support of the community was still present and strong.
As soon as everyone arrived at the event, the music was so enjoyable that everyone had already started dancing.
WHS juniors Becca and Bella shared their thoughts about prom, “I thought it was going to be fun.”
The DJ had to call the students back to their table in order to start dinner as everyone was on the dance floor. The food was in buffet-style, as it was last year.
There were many mixed opinions on this prom’s food choice. However, the majority of juniors enjoyed the music compared to last year because it was more music they were used to. WHS Junior Abby Malizia agrees with this, she stated “The music was a lot better [this year] than last year.”
After talking with senior student council member Angelica Velez, senior prom seems it will be very enjoyable as well.
“One of the things I’m excited about this year is [the] Aqua Turf itself. I know some people have been there, but it’s just such a big venue and the scenery is gorgeous, so that’s something that I personally am looking forward to. This year they have a photo booth so rather than getting a key chain, you get a cute slip with a couple of photos, so that’s nice. I also think that senior prom will be the one to remember since it is one of our last big nights together. It’s just going to be unforgettable and I can’t wait!”
Senior prom is located at the Aqua Turf in Southington, CT, with food choices of roasted sirloin, chicken ala Kathryn, chicken francaise, or a vegetarian eggplant parmigiana.
For food, it will be served to you rather than buffet style, which may help with food quality. The Aqua Turf is notorious for its food, as it is usually very good.
As for DJ, it will be the same as last year, so as seniors, we definitely look forward to something enjoyable.
