Whitman-Hanson Prom Issue

Thursday, May 31, 2007

A Special Sections spring turns to summer, and the school year ends, limos rolling down the street can be as common as sparrows. Thats right, its prom season. Proms are extremely important in our community, important to students, their parents, and businesses alike. Here at the Express, we are annually flattered that so many kids and parents send us photos. So many photos, in fact, that in years past we havent been able to print them all! So this year, we decided to try something a little different. Consider this special section a keepsake, something to treasure along with your other memories of high school like sports trophies and yearbooks. In the spirit of the prom, we asked our staff to dig up photos from their high school proms (see right.) Somethings have changed, and some things havent. I can assure you that my dancing skills in particular are at the exact same level they were when I was 17. Prom is often the last great fling for a high school student before they move on to college or another phase of their lives. Its a time to celebrate with friends that may soon be separated by distance and time. And therefore its that much more important to savor these memories and photos. And who knows what can happen. See that beautiful girl Im standing with in my prom photo? Thats now my wife, Kelly. (And she looks exactly the same. Time has not been so kind to me, on the other hand.) Enjoy the photos, and visit to view even more. Justin Graeber Editor Reporter Maribeth Conway Office Manager Amy McWilliams

Whitman-Hanson Prom Issue


High school proms bring big business to local merchantsBY DANIEL DI CENSO EXPRESS REPORTER

ts that time of the year again, when limos are seen pulling in and out of local driveways, when young couples are seen taking pictures in the front lawn wearing tuxedos and dresses, and flowers are exchanged in all directions. Yes, its the prom season and besides bringing joy to many youths, prom brings much business to the town. In Whitman, one business to come out strong was John Russell Studio, a styling salon where students can get most of their work done. On Friday, prom night, students crowded the place arriving in waves at one in the afternoon and later at three. Its very exciting to come and get everything done here, Chris King from Hanson Florist holds a nosegay. King said bright colors are becoming more popular. said student Jessica Lavigne.

She said melon colors like lime green have become popular over the last couple of years. Other companies that had previously used the prom for business found that they could not do so this year. East Bridgewater Affordable Limo, for instance, did not offer prom services for the first time this year, the owner stating that since the number of students per limousines was increasing, the limos were no longer large enough to accommodate prom goers. All day Friday, teenagers could be seen hurrying around the streets of Hanson and Whitman for the biggest night of their high school career. To many, the prom is their special stepping stone before entering the post-high school world.
