Big luau Bash
by Katie Brinager, Staff Writer
Forgetting the dresses, ties and manicures
many students just threw on
some beach-style clothes and headed over to the cafeteria and courtyard area
to dance the night away. This year's spring fling dance committee consisted
of juniors Kelly Paschke, Rachel Kutsko, Jenny Yoger and Kayleigh
O'Brien. They presented the idea of Luau to the student council body. It
was voted and agreed upon. Due to conflicting plans with student council advisor
Mrs. Phyllis Cimaglio, the date was switched Spring Fling from
May 8th to the first and then back to the eighth.
Student council members decorated around 3 P.M. to liven the place up with decorations, using fake flowers to create an entrance way and spelling out the theme. Strings of lights were wound around the main lights on the ceilings and paper fish, lobsters and various sea creatures hung along the walls and windows. Around all the music equipment of sophomore Brody Leven, grass skirts lined the table. Outside junior Nick Waetjen had chalked up a walk with a beach, palm tree, sun and volcano. Rachel helped with drawing various birds around the little island.
Opinions of the student body varied from fun to just ok. Junior Mike Amicarelli commented on his night at the dance, "Yeah, it was fun. I was chilling with the ladies all night long. There could have been more rock music, though." Junior Brittney Thrush said, "It was more fun than I thought it would be Brody did a nice job."
