Donations make post prom success

Published: Saturday, May 17, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Thank you to all the businesses, service organizations, individuals, and parents who donated to the May 3 Oregon High School Post Prom.

Your time, cash donations, gift certificates, novelty items, snacks, and drinks were greatly appreciated.

It is amazing what was accomplished with the help of people who care so much about our students.

The generosity of this community provided for one of the most successful post-prom events yet, with 120 students attending.

Thank you also to Al and Sandy Nordman of Town & Country Lanes in Mount Morris for being so accommodating. A great time was had by students and chaperones. We take great pride in being one of only a few schools that offer our students a safe and fun after-prom alternative.

We hope to keep this tradition going for our youth at Oregon High School for many years to come.
