HARTSBURG -- Saturday evening the juniors and seniors of Hartsburg-Emden High School, along with family, friends and guests, celebrated their annual prom with a pre-prom march in the gymnasium.

The bleachers filled with parents and other family members anxious to see their kids dressed in beautiful formal wear. As the young men and women filled the floor of the gym, the bleachers soon emptied as everyone went to search out their special couples for pictures and, of course, hugs and kisses before their big night.

Finally the lights went down and each couple enjoyed their moment in the spotlight, literally, as they descended from the high school stage area to the gym floor.

After the prom-goers completed their march, the parents went back home, and the young people moved over to the community center, where they enjoyed a special evening.

For young people, the prom is a coming-of-age-type ritual. For parents, it signifies a departure from childhood. While your kids will always be your kids, there comes a time when mom and dad have to let go and admit, the kids are no longer children.
