Prom Rules - 1962

Left: At intermission Chet Niles, Patricia Lewis, Tony Westendorf, and Mary Armstrong enjoy an informal chat.

Top: 23 Skidoo! Patti Martell and Mike King revive an old favorite of the 1920's, the Charleston.

Bottom Right: Waiting for the music to begin, Don Melvin gets into position with his date, Marilyn Buncheck. Don, looking very debonair, is wasting not time in getting the evening off to a good start.

The following regulations will be enforced for the Junior-Senior Prom which will be held at the Y.M.C.A. on Wednesday, May 23.

1. No one who has taken an alcoholic drink that evening will be admitted to the prom.
2. There will be no Pre-prom or Post-prom parties to be held that evening.
3. Immodest dress is strictly prohibited for the banquet and prom. Strapless formals are prohibited. Low necklines are immodest. Spaghetti straps are forbidden.
4. The banquet will be held at 6:15. It is for the juniors and seniors, faculty and pastors. The parents are invited to the program (about 7:15)
5. The prom will be held from 9:00 to 12:30.
6. Smoking will not be permitted in any part of the Y.M.C.A. building at any time. Smoking will be allowed just outside the exit doors.
7. Once admitted to the prom, no one who has gone away from the building may return.
8. By direction of the Most Reverend Bishop all students must be home by 2:00 a.m. of Thursday, May 24.
9. All students are expected to be in school at 12:40 on Thursday, May 24. It would be very edifying to seem them at the 11:30 school Mass.
10. Since admission to the prom will be by personalized tickets only it will be necessary that the names of all dates be submitted by May 4, Friday.
Parents of juniors and seniors will be admitted without tickets.
11. If you are inviting an outsider as your date, please inform them of the rules.

Dear Parents, we ask for your wholehearted cooperation to make this banquet and prom a success for your son or daughter. With your help it can be an event of happy memories rather than one filled with regrets.
