We hope that our juniors and seniors and their guests have a wonderful time at the prom at the Beechwood Inn this evening! Although it is a little cool and overcast, I am certain that they will all have an outstanding time. A great deal of preparation and planning has gone into this event, and I could sense the excitement in the air as I met with them before dismissal today. We are grateful to all of the class officers, moderators and parents who have worked to put this event together.
We are especially grateful to the parents and teachers who will work at the overnight after-prom party at the YMCA. This event has proven to be a fun way to be certain that everyone is safe and secure throughout the evening, and we thank the Y for hosting and Magic World and Dan Candell for providing the entertainment. And we also thank the countless donors providing door prizes and food for this event.
Finally, we thank Bishop McManus who provided our prom attendees with a dispensation regarding eating meat on Fridays during Lent for this event. We are always grateful to the Bishop for his support and prayers!
