Washington, CT - Glamorous gowns, glitzy vests, a few top hats and even the clicking of cameras; you guessed it – it was a Night on the Red Carpet for the Glenholme prom-goers. Their star-worthy evening of Saturday, May 21st began with a pre-prom reception in the Glenholme Music Room complete with parents, pizzazz and paparazzi befitting Hollywood celebrity. The lovely reception provided a heart-warming opportunity to see the couples and classmates in their formal attire, snap some fabulous keepsake photos before they were whisked away in the awaiting stretch limousine.

Their destination, The Washington Club, opened its doors on this special night. Once there, the twenty-three prom-goers enjoyed a beautifully catered meal and hours of music, dancing and merriment. The climax of the evening arrived just before midnight, the announcement of the royal court and with that Jakhai and Maggie were crowned as King and Queen.

The social event of the Glenholme calendar proved successful. The evening delivered an incredible experience for the school’s seniors and their guests who made the fundamental step into the social world of adulthood in safe, entertaining surroundings.
