Junior Class Leadership Council has already began looking into booking this year’s prom location. “We have just been focusing on locations because we want to get that booked first,” junior JCLC member Aliza Rahman said.

While prom preparation for most St. Paul Academy and Summit School students begin in the late Spring, a small group of juniors are already hard at work to make Prom 2014 a smashing success. The Junior Class Leadership Council is already arranging many important details about the dance.

While prom planning includes many small details, from flowers to food, JCLC is starting with the most important aspect: the location. “We have just been focusing on locations because we want to get that booked first, but we are looking into people to do the centerpieces for us,” junior JCLC member Aliza Rahman said.

Rahman said that the council has narrowed the location down to three sites: the Como Park Conservatory, the Minneapolis Depot and the Mill City Museum.

Rahman believes that all of the options will be perfect locations for prom. “The Depot is just absolutely beautiful,” Rahman said. “I have been to a wedding there before and it is amazing.”

More JCLC members shared their own experiences at the locations. “A lot of other JCLC members have said [the Mill City Museum] is a beautiful place to have it,” Rahman said.

JCLC will finalize the location during their next meeting on Nov. 5.
