Prom #2

Continuing on the other post from today...
I have been home for a little while and during this vacation from Strong Memorial, my parents and friends planned a make-up prom for me and my friends. It was INCREDIBLE! Many of my friends even said that this prom was better than the high school's prom!
Thank you everyone for showing up (about 75 people total, maybe more?) and making the prom a prom.
Thank you Jeff Clement for helping to hire my favorite band, IY, an amazing band from Ithaca with much potential. They all graduated from IHS, but that's not the only reason why they're popular. Their music had all generations dancing at the party (my mother included).
Thank you Celia Clement for helping put together some amazing food. Donated food came from some of my favorite restaurants and cafes in Ithaca (Viva Taqueria, Hope's Way and the Carriage House Cafe).
Thank you Silviana Russo and Paula Winner for helping with decorations (and Rachel Possen for helping me make signs to post over the food).
Thanks Mom and Dad and Patricia for organizing everything including renting the large pavillion at Stewart Park (where I normally work over the summer and a perfect spot for a party).
The prom was a GREAT success. I will try to post photos soon.
