Prom night at Pioneer Home a perfect night in Paris


The Juneau Pioneer Home recently held its senior Prom called “A Night in Paris.”

The Thunder Mountain Big Band led by Ron Maas provided dancing tunes to our finely dressed residents, families and friends. Music, appetizers and atmosphere left the crowd in smiles throughout the evening.

We are grateful to so many; Ryia for making pre-event lattes and mochas, Lisa Ibias and Laisne’ Waldron for prom attire, Perseverance Theatre and Juneau-Douglas High School for decorations, photographers Janet Lumininsky and Sarah Boesser, Marcella for the invitation drawing, Beth, Roberta, Stina for their help with planning, members of Episilon Alpha Sigma and their delicious desserts, the Lauger girls, Mark Jimmerson, Amy George and many staff with NANA; Sofia, C.J., Jan, Arjee, Charise, Lea, Mercy, Tami, Susan, Somer, Fred, Nil, Josephine, Cathy, Vangie, Hillia, Jenifer, Maria, Melinda, Zenaida, Noah, Steve, Susan, Nora, Tessie, Marlyn, Lindsey, Lauren, Jill and Heidi. And those who might have not received mention, but should have — my apologies.
