As Clay City Jr./Sr. High School gets ready for the end of the school year, the springtime ritual has arrived again.

Prom will take place this Saturday, at Sycamore Farms in Terre Haute.

This will be the first prom at the Farms' big red barn.

The theme this year is "The Black Tie Affair."

Junior class president Levi Seymour has been in charge of organizing the event and keeping all of the committees on task.

According to Seymour, committees for music, food, post prom and decorating have been executing all of the planning needed to pull the night off.

Seymour said he oversees such committees, especially decorating because, according to him, "I don't do very much with prom colors. I'm not very color coordinating."

Seymour did, however, choose the post prom location: Four Seasons Golf Complex, near Honey Creek Mall.

"We were sick of the cliché bowling alley," he explained. Seymour and a few of his classmates found Four Seasons while on the search for prom venues.

After a successful search, the group decided to play a round of golf, and discovered that Four Seasons would be a good, new experience.

Students will be able to play mini-golf, full course golf, hit at the driving range, practice in a simulator as well as use the complex's game room for cards and video games.

The post prom committee is currently looking for donations for door prizes, and is asking local businesses to help them out.

Seymour said the biggest challenge of putting prom together has been getting everyone to pay his or her class dues.

Dues this year were $10, and everyone is "paid up" for this year.

Seymour gives class secretary Kayla Wells a lot of credit for helping him put the evening on.

Tickets for Clay City's "The Black Tie Affair" are currently on sale.
