Island Paradise brings pleasure towards BHS
May 2, 2001
This year’s Baldwin High School prom was a night of tropical fun. After dressing and dining on the evening of Saturday, students entered a world full of balloon palm trees and neon lights at Liberty Hall in downtown Lawrence. “I think Liberty Hall was one of the coolest places to have it. No hotel could provide the same atmosphere,” said junior Sarah Beaulieu. The theme of Prom 2001 was “Island Paradise,” and the night was just that. As students gathered together in their gowns, suits and tuxes, the room lit up with excitement. Upon entering the room everyone was presented with a flower lei. The floor of the building was scattered with tables for students to rest and enjoy the snacks and punch. The stage was decorated with two giant balloon palm trees and venus fly traps.
