Special to The Express
Covid didn’t stop the Juniors from Plympton, Halifax and Kingston from having a spectacular Junior Prom hosted by a few parents who wanted to make sure their kids had this special memory. Karen Foye, Jessica Gouveia and Hannah Doehler got together and put on the Junior Formal 2022 for the class of 2023 this past Saturday at the Middleborough Town Hall in the Grand Ballroom. More than 225 kids attended the event, decked out in their finest tuxes and beautiful gowns. It was a beautiful night for the event. Parents, friends and school faculty were invited to watch the Red Carpet introductions of all the attendees hosted by Matt Foye (who apologizes for mispronouncing many of the kids names, at least it made them smile as they were being introduced).
Tickets for the event were only $30 ($40 if purchased after April 1) that more than covered everything needed to create this memorable event. DJ services, a photo booth and lighting services were provided by South Coast Entertainment, a giant light up PROM sign, balloon sculptures and centerpieces, candy bar, sandwiches, snacks, cake pops, fruit skewers and lots of water were provided. Karen Foye, from Foye Photography, also captured the night at the red carpet in both video and photos as well as setting up a formal photo booth for the kids to pose for pictures she will send to all the parents.
Two Middleborough police officers and 14 parent/sibling chaperones provided security for the event and made sure everything went smoothly.
The host of the senior prom next year will have a lot to live up to in order to top this event!
