2013 Danville High School Prom was a hit at the Lyndonville Fairgrounds. If you weren't dancing under the flashing lights, you were getting your game on playing Roulette, Blackjack or Craps. The prom was held in one of the event barns on Saturday, May 18, and the theme was "Casino." As you arrived, you were greeted by many friends and family members eager to see everyone in their beautiful attire. When entering the building, your eyes were immediately drawn to the amazing decorations. You could tell that a lot of time and effort was put into every little thing.

Every year there are many factors that make prom so amazing. What made prom so awesome this year were the delicious mock-tails made by the well-dressed bartenders Jordan White and Eric Bach. One of the more popular drinks was the Tasty "T," also known as a Shirley Temple. The chaperones made sure that we were all safe, but also were able to have a good time with us. The beautiful photographs this year were taken by JD Photography.

The announcing of "High Rollers" (prom king and queen) concluded the night. The female High Roller was Kalyn Briggs, who was awarded a money scarf. The male High Roller was Brandon Thresher, who was awarded with a top hat.

From the perspective of a graduating senior, this prom was an amazing way to conclude my year at Danville High School. I know that I had a great time and the junior class did an amazing job putting together a fun filled night for everyone. The following are a few quotes from prom goers:

"Prom was well decorated, we really had fun, and the drinks were great!" -- Jacquelyn White, Brianna Sinclair and Jack Beauparlant.

"The best part of prom was being able to take a break from dancing and play a few games." -- Ashlynn Royce.

"The best part of prom was dancing under the disco lights, they were really colorful and lit up the place well." -- David Marthers.

"I thought 2013 Danville High School Prom was exceptional. I appreciated the efforts of the parent volunteers and the positive attitudes of our students and guests." -- Noah Noyes.
