Prom Plans Roll; Barker Band Set For Big Occasion
Plans are now underway for the forthcoming Junior-Senior Prom to be held at the International Ballroom of the prominent Lafayette Hotel in Long Beach.
The Warren Barker band has been secured for the occasion. This is one of the Disneyland bands and is popular for its recording of "77 Sunset Strip" for the Warner Bros. Studios and is currently being used as the theme song of the weekly television program.
Paulette Dagampat is the winner of the contest that was held on campus to select a theme for the prom. Her entry of "Stairway To The Stars" was selected by the Junior class officers.
The Sweetheart's Swing is one of the money making projects to gain money for the prom as well as the Mistletoe sales that were conducted during the yuletide season.
Future activities to raise money for the prom are selling popcorn at the basketball games as well as other tentative activities such as a faculty basketball game featuring Mayfair vs. Bellflower faculty.
