The Jun- iors and Seniors ate supper at the Litchfield Steakhouse and were served by the sophomores. Then they all ventured to the old gym at the school. The Junior class had the gym decorated to go with the camo theme. There was a photographer available to take pictures of couples and the classes. Next was the parade of formals, where everyone got a chance to show off their fancy attire. Finally came time to see who won king and queen. The honor was awarded to Delaney LeFever and Jacob Swearingen. The dance started with a royalty dance between Jacob and Delaney. Everyone danced until almost midnight and then it was time to change clothes, get on a bus, and go to the Big Apple in Kearney for the after prom party hosted by the Litchfield Booster Club. The kids got to go bowling, play laser tag and eat pizza. They arrived home around 4:30 A.M., exhausted and ready for some sleep. Everyone had an awesome time!■ 5
