Hats of to Willmar prom volunteers
Hats off to everyone who helped with Willmar High School's prom and post-prom party, especially the chairpersons of the post-prom, Beth Piepenburg and Janell Olson. Their efforts, time and energy produced a fun and safe evening for the 275 students that attended from midnight to 4:30 a.m. Many businesses in Willmar, Spicer, and New London generously donated prizes and food. Parents and community members worked the evening without a complaint about being tired. And the young adults that attended were considerate to us old fossils, and to each other. If you are a parent or grandparent of a WHS student, you should be proud -- they are a great bunch of kids.
