To The Daily Sun,
On Saturday, May 20, Moultonborough Academy held their first After Prom Lock-in party. It started at 11 p.m. and concluded at 6 a.m. The After Prom party provided a place for prom goers to continue the celebration, in a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment.
Students were entertained by a magician, an inflatable obstacle course, inflatable boxing, boxing cash cube, and knockerball soccer. Later in the night, students were able to try their luck at an Escape Room, games and classic card and board games. Students won chips that they could later turn in for prizes, many of which were donated by local businesses. Prizes were also raffled off during the night, cash prizes were given out and food was abundant in the cafeteria.
“It was really important to the after prom committee that we have a lot to offer the students. We thought that the more we had to offer, the more students would be interested, and it worked,” said Lindsay Bliznik, After Prom Party coordinator. “We were very pleased with the turnout. Over 81 percent of the students who attended prom, attended the After Prom Party.”
The feedback from the students has been positive. “This was my first time going and it was the best! My favorite part was knockerball,” said junior Jon Bryant. Junior Bailey Jensen, said, “it was nice to see everyone having a good time without the use of outside negative influences”.
The students and advisors worked extremely hard to make After Prom a reality, but none of it would have been possible without the generosity of the community, specifically CruCon. CruCon came through when the after prom committee really needed help with a $3,000 donation. The extent of our after prom party would not have been possible without CruCon’s incredibly generous donation. The town of Moultonborough also made a very generous donation to help fund the event. The prom committee, its advisors, and all of the After Prom attendees would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those who donated:
