On behalf of the Homer High School Class of 2016, I would like to thank the following businesses and people for their donations and help in making our “Vintage Hollywood” prom on April 18 a rousing success. 

Heartfelt thanks goes first to the group of students, led by P.K. Woo, who worked so hard on all the details of organizing this major public event. The decorations committee owes a huge debt to Carolee Jones who did a tremendous job hand-creating hundreds of stars used to create the elegant atmosphere. We used shiny and creative film-festival decorations that were generously offered by Libby Bushell and HOWL. 

It was a blustery night, and the coatracks borrowed from the Homer Elks Club and Katrine Lovett were greatly appreciated. Nelton Palma’s skill as a DJ kept the crowd enthusiastic from the moment of their arrival to the final dance at midnight. 

The staff at Land’s End provided a delicious spread throughout the evening, while Joshua Veldstra tirelessly photographed wave after wave of elegant attendees.Thank you to the sophomore class cleanup crew for all your hard work the morning after. 

Last, but not least, thank you to the community members, Homer High staff, and parents who joined us in decorating,  chaperoning, and cleaning up to make this event safe and memorable. Once again, Homer should be very proud  of the caliber of young adults we are raising.
