The Ellwood City After Prom Party was held on Friday evening at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Center.
The After Prom was formed in 1948 by fraternal, veterans and civic organizations of Ellwood City. Lincoln High School students arrived at the Catholic Center following their prom in Butler. The students were entertained throughout the evening with a DJ, photobooth, hypnotist, caricature artist and magic close-up with Dr. Brad Brown.
The evening’s entertainment was provided due to the support of the following sponsors: ESB Bank, Good Wheels, The Car Wash of Ellwood City, McElwain Bros. Paint & Collision Center and Dr. Robert C. MacMurdo Family Dentistry.
The theme for the After Prom was Once Upon a Time which featured tables with a different movie theme from childhood. Decorations were under the supervision of Jodi Damon and her committee. Tim Takacs designed special lighting decorations for the evening.
The students also enjoyed a variety of foods throughout the evening, including pizza, chicken, gyros, hot dogs, ice cream, a chocolate fountain and a variety of desserts. Chris Miley was in charge of the food and Debbie and Jim Morton handled refreshments.
