|Post Prom dedication appreciated|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Youth that live in communities that support Post Prom Parties are very fortunate. Our community is one that values this tradition and has for many years. It is very clear that Holyoke believes in this activity by the support given throughout the planning process and the actual evening Post Prom takes place.
Beta Sigma Phi stepped up several years ago to take the leadership it takes in running a successful Post Prom Party. These women have done a marvelous job, and have been very open to new ideas.
Beta Sigma Phi listened to several junior students about the idea of changing the location to the high school and they were also willing to try new activities that were suggested. With the help of many, this evening was one of great success and one that is still being talked about by those attending.
Post Prom requires many dedicated volunteers and businesses to continue supporting it year after year. The support given is not gone unnoticed by the youth or their parents. As a parent of a junior, we have heard nothing but praise for this evening and we wish to acknowledge each business and adult who made the evening possible. Knowing your child is safe on prom night and having a memorable evening is a tremendous and comforting feeling.
A simple thank you is not enough for the businesses who are so generous with their donations, the many volunteers for the work they do prior to Post Prom and for those who give up a night of sleep with family back at home, and the Lion’s Club who cooks breakfast year after year. Thanks to the Holyoke School District who allowed the kids to have their wish fulfilled, and thank you kids for respecting these premises and all volunteers.
And to the Beta Sigma Phi women and their families … we are all blessed that you put your whole heart into this night!
The Post Prom Party is just one example of how Holyoke supports the children of Holyoke. The support and belief in kids is evident on any given day. Thank you Holyoke!
