We have a dozen teens and their parents who really want to be involved in planning a prom for homeschooled teens this next school year. Yay! We can all work together and make this amazing!! There is plenty to do for everyone to pitch in what they're best at.


This first meeting, we will select co-leaders for the organizing team (at least 2) and sub-team leaders for venue site visits, photography and music. Then those leaders will meet with the Prom Team each month, and visit NNHS board meetings periodically with a progress report. NNHS will be happy to help with deposits, payment processing, even at the door, signing contracts for venue, photography, music, catering, rentals, liability insurance, access to contact thousands of homeschoolers from Reno to Winnemucca, Dayton to Genoa...so long as we are kept informed.


We can even consider a fall (that would be super quick) or winter dance (Jan. 20th would fit into the calendar :-)...formal, semi-formal or whatever...each one different? Teens choose.


We need to start securing venue and date and start doing some serious fundraising and planning immediately. With so many willing to help, it should be a wonderful year for teen dances.

*********************************

*Target date for secured venue and firm Prom date: October 1st (deposit)

*Next committee meeting Sept. 20th, 1pm, Lamppost Pizza, Reno

Bring your ideas for FUNDRAISING

Decorations

nominations for committee chair (preferably a teen)

budget, etc.

A subcommittee needs to check out at least 3 sources for music/DJ, and portfolio of at least 3 photographers (if you want photography). What a about a selfie station?



Suggested venues and themes so far:

Under the Sea

Barn Dance

Back to the Future


Andelin Farm Barn (back of Sparks, very informal)

California Building (Central Reno...by the river...scary after dark??_

Hidden Valley Country Club (central Reno - need a member?)

Redhawk Country Club (back of Sparks)

Thunder Canyon in Washoe Valley (free venue with catering purchase between January and April)

Walleys Resort in Washoe Valley (think about those Carson/Dayton teens)

Pipers Opera House in Virginia City (not during the winter)


Come with your ideas.
