After Prom is looking for volunteers to assist with the fundraising, decorating and flea market committees.  It takes a village to fund raise and create the After Prom experience.  Volunteer just a few hours or dedicate more.  We are specifically looking for someone with experience with organizing a reverse raffle, someone to organize the bake sale for the flea market, basket raffle and vendor areas.  E-mail Tamara Brininger at TamaraBrin@gmail.com if you can help.

If you love garage sales and rummage sales then this is the opportunity you have been waiting for! The After Prom flea market is one of our community traditions and an exciting fundraising event.  We are still looking for a chairperson to take this committee position and help us create a successful event.  The flea market will be held on March 15th, during one of the Kiwanis pancake breakfast weekends.  Round up your friends, who can help with the vendor area, bake sale, basket raffle, and help us plan for a weekend of deals!  If you are interested or know someone who might be, contact Tamara Brininger at TamaraBrin@gmail.com

After discussing multiple theme ideas, the After Prom committee voted that the theme for the Class of 2015 will be “It’s Time for Me to Fly”.  As our students are now getting ready to leave the nest and take flight to see the world, it was an appropriate theme.  We wanted to emphasis that the world is at the student’s feet, and that there are many pathways to take.  More details will be discussed and finalize when our decorating committee starts planning the details of how to make “It’s Time for Me To Fly” and amazing After Prom event for our students and their guests.

This year’s theme is “It’s Time for me to Fly” will be a main topic of discussion. Topics will  also include continuing fundraising ideas, decorating topics, logo development and committee chair reports.

If you have a passion for garage sales and repurposing, consider being the chair for our annual flea market. This is our biggest fundraising event and an exciting part of our After Prom tradition.  We can help you build a committee that includes volunteers for basket raffle, bake sale, vendor and flea market sales.  We would love to have you be a part of our After Prom team!  Contact Tamara Brininger at TamaraBrin@gmail.com for more details.

To get the creativity and ideas flowing, here is a list of past After Prom themes.   The atmosphere and decorations that transform the high school gym into a memorable night are a small piece of the vision of After Prom.  What will the theme be for the Class of 2015?  Come to the meeting on the night of September 29th to share in the discussions and presentations.
