Thank you to those who were able to attend the After Prom meeting on August 25, 2014!
We voted to keep After Prom at the high school this school year instead of taking it off site to Solon Freeway Lanes as was done for the Class of 2014. It was Unanimous that the students expressed their desire to have it at the high school.
Cathy Rugg is our Secretary. At the time of the meeting we still needed a treasure, but that position has now also been filed. Liz Judson will be our Treasure.
Committee chairs for the following were made at the meeting or since been filled:
Fundraising: Marsha Marin
Candy Sales: Ann Allegretti (she is picking up candy next week)
50\50 Raffle: Patti Mecuri (need volunteers to work at the football games)
Tickets: Julie Mazzurco
Publicity: Julie Mazzurco
Tuxedo: Paul & Colleen Alioto (Maybe)
Casio: Matt & Cathy White

Our next meeting is September 29th at 7:00. The topic at our next meeting will be the presentation of theme topics. I will post a list of past themes to get your creative juices flowing. Areas that are part of the decorating theme are: outside and inside entrances, food, midway, prizes, casino, movie area or lounge and bathrooms.
Our new website www.WGAfterProm.com is started and is in the building phase. We will be using that for current events, meetings and fundraising efforts.
The website is WGAfterProm.com.
E-mail is WGAfterProm@yahoo.com (which Tamara will start monitoring)
Volunteer Job Posting: Looking for enthusiastic parents (moms and dads) to help create an exciting and memorable After Prom event like West Geauga has never seen!
We will have an After Prom organization meeting on Monday, August 25th at 7:00 at the high school library. We will need a treasurer and a secretary to get us started.
I would love to start filling the committee chairs for:
The focus of this first meeting will be to get some of the key positions filled, especially someone to chair as well as volunteers for the 50\50 raffle tickets that are sold at the home football games, and to begin discussion about whether or not we wish to have After Prom at the school or off site. Either way we need to start fundraising efforts and the sooner we start the better off we will be in the end.
Please share this e-mail with other senior parents and bring a friend with you to the meeting.
I haven’t forgotten about the barn and hoping to send more news about a clean up day very soon!
The 2015 After Prom Committee is looking forward to creating an exciting safe event, free from drugs and alcohol, for the 2015 West Geauga graduating class.

This includes: decorating, food, fundraising, senior show, tuxedos, entertainment, prizes/games, transportation, flea market, clean up.
