Not your average school rodeo

REED CITY — Rhinestone Cowboy was the theme for this year’s Reed City High School Prom. Class advisor, Jerry Hoppes and the team of juniors on the prom committee were determined early on to make this an unforgettable night.

Along with the Chartwell’s Catering Team and a lot of work from volunteers, they transformed the Osceola 4H building into a western dance hall that would make even Glen Campbell proud.

What started as a simple sketch, turned into a dance floor sectioned off by an old fashioned wooden fence, hanging lights and the sparkles from a disco ball. Teens were even served up prime rib as part of their buffet, a favorite to any cowboy. The only thing missing at this honky tonk party was the mechanical bull. Oh wait, there was one!

Guys and gals finished up a night of dancing by heading over to RCHS for the after prom festivities where they partied until the sun came up. The event was planned as a fun safe place for teens to hang out for the night. More food, games, and raffles were available as well as a gym full of carnival inflatables and ,of course, the mechanical bull.

All the time spent planning both prom and after-prom paid off with a great night full of memories.

The RCHS Prom Committee sends special thanks to all those who made this night so special — businesses and volunteers alike.
