Greenwood’s Senior and Junior Prom was held on April 30th at Felicita Resort. The girls zipped up their dresses, did their makeup, got their nails done, put on their shoes and were ready to go. The boys tied their tie or bowtie, buttoned their shirt, buttoned their vest and coat, tied their shoes and were ready to go.
After posing for pictures, people began pouring into the building. The theme this year was Midnight in the Garden and a lot of people matched that theme with light, pastel colors. Everyone took their seats, took more pictures with other people, and waited for supper to begin.
Dinner was served at 7 p.m. buffet style. There was salad, stuffed chicken breast, fettuccini alfredo, steamed vegetables, mashed potatoes and gravy, bread, drinks, and deserts. Deserts included vanilla twists, mini-pies, mini-cheesecakes, cupcakes, and whoopie pies. The food was delicious and seemed to fill everyone up.
The dancing began at 8 p.m. and everyone headed out to the dance floor. Though the dance floor was small and everyone was so close it was hot, everyone had fun. The DJ was amazing and knew exactly what kind of music to play. He could tell if we were into a song or not and play a new song or let the song play through.

The king and queen and prince and princess were chosen in the middle of the dancing. Danny Yetter and Rachel Yourth took the king and queen titles, while Jaret Stroup and Libby Korber took the prince and princess titles.
They celebrated their royalty by dancing the night away. The dance officially ended at 11 p.m. and a lot of people stayed right up until the end. No one cared by the end of the night who looked better, who had the prettiest dress, what kind of drama happened, who danced with who, or who won the crown. All that mattered was that everyone enjoyed themselves and they did.
Prom 2k16, you were great. Here’s to another great prom next year!
