This year’s Homer High School prom on April 12 was a rousing success.  

Heartfelt thanks goes first to the group of students led by Maggie LaRue and Jane Rohr, who worked so hard on all the details of organizing this major public event. The decorations committee and their parents did a fabulous job using recyclable materials to create a truly enchanted environment. Diana Larson and Michelle Borland were indispensable in tracking loose ends; and Cam Wyatt helped students produce clever alder souvenirs. Spencer Shroyer’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 Linda Smogor energetically photographed wave after wave of elegant attendees. 

Last, but not least, I thank the chaperones who joined us to make this event safe and memorable. Homer should be very proud of the caliber of young adults we are raising.
