Flint Artifacts: Powers High School 1983 and 1984 Prom Souvenir Booklets

  1. I bet no one can top Carman's prom of '84. I think it was at a Grand Blanc Golf club or something.

    Three bomb threats were called in (by a disgruntled student) during the evening, requiring us to retire into golf carts while they checked the building.

    The band was so bad, they played Prince's 1999 song as a slow song.

    I had come from a proud no-prom heritage, so when I was asked, I was sort of bummed that I had broken the chain.

    I was thankful for the evening to be over... and I think I told my date I had a curfew when I didn't.

    wap-WAHHHH.... ;p


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
