FALCONER – A longtime tradition to keep kids engaged in positive activities following prom opened their doors to the community over the weekend.
For 30 plus years, those behind the Falconer High School’s After Prom have held elaborate events for students following the coveted dance. This year was no different.
“I’m always amazed with what the school comes up with, it keeps the students off the road and they love coming,” said Tim Black, a 1985 Falconer graduate.
The event was split up into four parts, two game rooms, a snack area, and a casino. While there were so many activities available, two activities really stole the spotlight: an inflatable surfboard and jousting.
“My favorite thing about tonight’s event is the sense of community,” said Black.
It seemed like everyone of all ages had fun.
“I’m most excited about seeing people and seeing the building and how different it is,” says Ana, a middle school student at Falconer.
In the end, many were comforted by the fact that students would have somewhere safe to come and continue the fun after prom itself ended.
The open house wasn’t only a way for the community members to have some fun, it was also a way for the school to honor those who have been dedicated to helping and supporting the after prom event through the years.
Rosie Digirlamo, Keith Kresconko, and Michelle Black are three staff members that were recognized for all the hard work they do to make an event like this possible.
