A World Famous Live Orchestra for our "Senior Prom"


After our first attempt in 2014, we knew we had a winner. Everyone kept asking us to do something special for each following year. Well, it's pretty hard to beat our Guinness World Record of the largest Human Letter "Q".

Since the entire weekend is a "Fun Event", we organized a committee to help us achieve just that. It is also the 50th Anniversary of the Quartzsite Improvement Association.
