NEWS: Junior Class Has Blast At Prom, Post-Prom
By Leslie Terres – Staff Reporter
Members of Law’s junior class and their guests had a blast at this year’s prom.
The event was held on May 29 at Vazzano’s Four Seasons restaurant in Stratford and was followed by the post-prom, which was held at the Sports Center in Shelton.
“It was so much fun to get dressed up with all of my friends,” junior Megan Grabowski said.
Many students and families gathered at The Laurel Beach Green before the dance for pictures. Limos and party busses transported students from the green to Vazzano’s.
“It was nice having all my friends on the same bus as me,” junior Ian Hugo said.
Food options included chicken parmesan, penne a la vodka, vegetables, salad, and dinner rolls. A few tables at a time were called up to choose what they wanted. Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were served for dessert.
“The food was amazing; the pasta and bread were the best part,” junior Niamh Nelson said.
Students lined up to pose with props and take pictures with friends and dates in the photo booth. Photos were printed there and handed to the students before they left the event. Students were also given frames for the photos along with portable chargers and Ben’s Bells, which were left on the tables for them.
“I love the photo booth because it was a good alternative for people who didn’t like dancing,” junior Bryan Pingarron said.
The DJ played many upbeat songs throughout the night, including “The Cupid Shuffle,” “Come On Eileen,” “The Cha Cha Slide,” “Wobble,” and others. The slow dance songs were “Thinking Out Loud” and “Home” by Phillip Phillips, which was dedicated to Maren Sanchez. The DJ also called students up for a scavenger hunt type game that many played.
Senior Mick Murray DJed the last hour of prom and junior Bobby Phong performed a few of his original raps.
“I loved all the music,” sophomore Colleen Rice said.
At post-prom, there were tables of food including Subway sandwiches, wings, pizza, and desserts and pastries. Students entered raffles and had a choice of ice skating, mini golf, a driving range, batting cages, and laser tag until shuttle buses came to pick them up at 3 a.m.
“Prom and post prom were a fun experience,” junior Asia Santos said.
