Oakland Mills High School's third annual After Prom was not only an "in" social event, but it also was fun for everyone. Sponsored by the school's PTSA, Alcohol and Drug Advisory Committee and SHOP (Students Helping Other People) the party, held at the Columbia Athletic Club, was a huge success.
Success in this instance should be spelled donations: prizes, time, food, and money.
The event was co-chaired and organized by parents Sandra Lillis, Barbara Bednarzik and school counselor Gary Ahrens. The After Prom guests had a variety of entertainment, including tennis, volleyball, a slam dunk contest, exercise equipment, videos and a karioke amateur contest.
And there was an all-you-can-eat sub bar open all night, and a continental breakfast was served at 3:30 a.m.
Door prizes were another highlight, including Orioles baseball tickets (donated by Paul and Sandy Lillis), Baysox baseball tickets, Elmer Fudge Co. T-shirts, a Walkman and Sam Goody gift certificates.
Donations to cover party costs and supplies came from the Oakland Mills village board, the Other Barn, Oakland Mills Village Center, Owen Brown Community Association, the Rouse Co., "I Love Theater," Orndorff & Spaid Inc., Michael and Robin Addman, Larry and Lorrene Petovic, Charles and Victoria Barr, Robert and Brenda Sutton, Neil and Sue Gallagher, Robert and Sharon Brown, Aldis and Connie Adamson, Alan and Margaret Caldwell, Dave and Judy Tripp, Raymond and Victoria Naff, Gregory and Virginia Yates, Ray and Patricia Costentino, John and Joyce Prange, Rosalia Strauss, Jack and Antoinette Eckstrom and Kim Rosado, the school's PTSA president.
A. J. and Cheryl Carrigg, John and Sue Hampshire and Marshall and Ann Combs were chaperones. The committee welcomes inquiries from those interested in developing their own After Prom program. Information: 313-6945.
