Saturday night, the annual Oswego High School prom was scheduled and once again the SADD Club, advisors and community organizations and businesses have come together to promote the post prom party.

As the prom ends a large number of students will head right back to the Oswego High School. The dining hall, gymnasiums and pool will be open as students will celebrate the post prom activities with a variety of avenues for entertainment, food and recreation.

Not only will the students carry the memories of the prom on Sunday morning, but many will be carrying home prizes won during the post prom event.  Televisions, gift cards, YMCA membership, jewelry, autographed sports photos, Nooks HD, movie tickets, food, a bike,  hair styling services,  a refrigerator, and free tickets are just some of the prizes that have been on display at OHS during the week prior to the annual dance.

Guidance counselor Shawn Caroccio chaired the gift drive and said, “The support of the community is unbelievable. Everyone wants a safe environment for Oswego High School students who have attended the prom. Businesses, organizations and individuals have generously donated to this post prom party.”

Donations poured in for the post prom party as among those donating merchandise or money were Verizon, CENG Nine Mile, Eagle Beverage, INDECK, Vashaw’s Collision, Plumbers and Fitters, Oswego Classroom Teachers’ Association, Bosco and Geers, the Oswego YMCA, the Village Shops, the Buffalo Bills, Compass Credit Union, Barbara Molvar, Dufore’s for Diamonds, Menter Ambulance, the Buc Boosters, Port City Bakery, Sunseekers, Midnight Sun, Bistro 197, Strands and Essence, Oswego Cinema 7, the Press Box, Mark’s Pizzeria, Civil Service Employees Association, Azteca, McDonalds, Ponderosa, Oswego FUMC Missions, the Comic Shop, Ruby Tuesday, Friendly’s, Murdocks,  Price Chopper, Cakes Galore, Big M., Christian Unity, Mark Mirabito,  Rudy’s Lakeside,  Empower Credit Union, Harbor Towne Gifts, NBT Bank, Pizza Hut, Supercuts, Shapiro’s, Envogue, Subway, Tim Horton’s, Empire Entertainment and Bev’s Dairy Treats.

Students were involved in many activities during the days before the prom.

Annually law enforcement and traffic safety agencies stage a mock accident which vividly displays the potential tragedy of drinking or drugs. All students attending the prom participate and this provides a meaningful message.
