NORWICH – Plans are in place for the sixth annual After Prom Party, designed to keep children in a safe environment following the Norwich Junior Prom May 3.
Each year, parents and students join forces to present an event that appeals to students while making the evening worry-free for parents. This tradition was started by the Students Against Destructive Decisions Chapter (SADD) at the high school approximately six years ago as a dedication to three Norwich graduates killed in college by a drunk driver.
Once the prom concludes, the YMCA will allow students to play games of chance, dance to a D.J., do a bungee run, sticky wall, see a magician, have a charicature artist paint them and get a chance inside the cash machine.
In years past, participation for the party has reached 80 percent and organizers say their goal is to reach 100 percent this year.
