Prom 2K18

Saturday, April 21, 2018, the Maywood Junior Class held its annual prom. This year’s theme was “Paradise City” and the auditorium was lit up like New York City with colorful lighted skyscrapers and shimmering black and silver palm trees. Palm trees in New York City? And to top it off a waterfall which was very impressive! Mixed symbolism? Nah . . . Cruise-ship-worthy pure paradise!


To start the celebration, junior and senior students accompanied by administration and school board members enjoyed a delectable dinner of pork chop steaks, cheesy potatoes, green beans and rolls while relaxing by Paradise City’s magical waterfall.


After the promenade - Congrats to Kayla Minary & Von Fritsche who were crowned queen and king - and the obligatory photos, the dancing commenced! Mr. G. spun his mixing magic and a tsunami of groovy tunes flooded over the dance floor! “Everybody was Kung-Fu Dancing!”


When the music finally stopped, and last few notes dropped silently in the air, like cherry blossoms drifting to the ground, and the lamps in the ballroom darkened, did these revelers saunter home? Not a chance! Briskly, boisterously they boarded a bus bound for where? The Yukon? Paradise City? Nope. But maybe the closest thing to paradise, for young adults, in these parts: Wild Bills Wings & Bowling in North Platte!


There was cosmic bowling and nachos; there was laser tag, and there were more refreshments; And there was more cosmic bowling and more nachos; there were arcade games and B.B.Q wings; The revelers' faces were all a ruddy glow from the refreshments and roughhousing! And the prizes! Oh, the prizes! Appearing as if by magic, they covered the whole scene like confetti, creating great chaos and merriment! Some lucky few went home with a flat-screen TV or a microwave. No one left without something! Everyone left with a smile on her face and memories that will remain long after the strobe of the dancing ball faded like a falling star, and the thunderous crashing, smashing of bowling pins was enveloped by the silent starlit night.  The author of this article apologizes that there are no photos of the riotous revelers at the post-prom party, but as the saying goes "What happens in Wild Bill's, stays in Wild Bill's."
