The Student Council has finally reached a decision for Winter Ball after having to find a location at the last minute.
The theme for the dance will be “Red Hot,” chosen because of the dance’s proximity to Valentine’s Day.
The dance’s location was moved from the DoubleTree Hotel because the chain hotel double booked and chose the other party.
“DoubleTree actually never confirmed the reservation that we had,” Savannah Symister, Student Council treasurer, said. “And then out of the blue it said that they confirmed someone else.”
Student Council president Madeline Mahla and Symister visited Sutter Lawn on Jan. 30 and were told that a member of the club must attend the dance. Member Kari Miner, mother of seventh-grader Ben and junior Grant, has agreed to be there.
Symister said that Sutter Lawn was also cheaper.
The Winter Ball last year was held at the DoubleTree.
