The After Prom Party is designed to give our kids a safe, fun alternative to drinking, driving, and other potentially dangerous activities. Bowling, ping-pong, dodgeball, an obstacle course, and boxing were some of the activities. Pizza, sandwiches, fruit, and chocolate galore, and enough prizes to keep almost everyone happy - this year's party certainly delivered. With over 125 in attendance, After Prom 2014 was the most well-attended in Bayfield history, and the kids are hoping that next year's will be just as much fun.
The success of this event is due to the generosity of the companies and individuals above, as well as the time of the parents who planned and chaperoned the event. Thank you to all involved as well as thank you to the BHS students and their guests for such a great night.
