“A Fairytale Ending” senior prom took place at Birch Hill in Schodack on the evening of May 14th.
Many students talked about Birch Hill being about 40 minutes away, but for most students it ended up not being as big of a problem as first believed. Senior Kayla Silvia said, “I didn’t think the distance was that bad; we were actually surprised at how fast it went.”
Briana Melanson agreed and noted, “As long as you have people to talk to the trip isn’t that bad.” Kayla Fraser said, “It’s a long way to go, but since the place is so nice, it is worth the trip.”
Most students agreed that the distance they had to travel really wasn’t a major problem since they were with friends and looking forward to a fun night.
Tables and seats ran out inside and many students were forced to sit outside under a lighted tent. Girls with long dresses had to go through the damp grass in the outside sitting area, which many were far from pleased about.
Many students were upset about running out of tables inside and being forced to sit outside. Jesse Marsh said, “They should probably get enough tables to accommodate students.”
Staci Vanier observed “It [running out of tables] happened last year too. They know we are a big class.” She agreed that they should have planned a little better.
There were mixed feelings about the location overall. Matt Champagne said, “I like [the location] when it’s around something. This is kind of in the woods.”
Lindsey Tremblay was not the biggest fan of the location either. “I think last years location was perfect. They should keep that one.”
This “Fairytale Ending” didn’t turn out to be as much of a fairytale as originally planned, and many students were unsatisfied with their night.
