Project Prom

Date posted - April 28, 2014

Kudos to Sheldon’s Project Prom committee for constructing a Titanic replica in the high school gym. ¬†It’s truly amazing what you did with cardboard and scrap lumber. ¬†Thanks for putting on a spectacular prom and safe after prom party.

    Back in Walnut Grove we had a “shiveree” every spring. While we never had anyone build the Titanic we did have a rope tied from a tree down by the river. Everyone took a swing from that rope and landed in the water and mud bottom after the fiddles stopped playing for the night. Why I remember one time Caroline caught her petticoat on the tree branch and she was stuck in that old creek with nothing on but a smile until Charles rounded up a cloth feed sack for her to wear back home!!!

    I’m sorry Harriet, but if you check YOUR history books you would see no mention of the Titanic because its construction didn’t begin until 1909. Thus, no one in Walnut Grove (circa 1860’s) including yourself would have an inkling of what the Titanic was (or would be). That being said, this years prom was pretty impressive and I am sure all the kids are very appreciative of the efforts of this years Junior class and their parents.

      Harriet has the right idea here. Doesn’t take him/herself too seriously which is something we all could think about. Go with the flow and have some fun…just like the students at prom.
