This year we celebrated the 17th York Suburban Post Prom.  Since 2001, York Suburban has provided a safe and supervised environment for students to enjoy a final event of entertainment and time with friends after another successful prom event.  For Post Prom 2017, we partied like we were on a tropical beach, with the theme of “Get Your Luau On!” With the support of student and parent fundraising efforts, donations from local businesses, and amazing commitment from volunteers – we had a great time continuing the tradition with our students through early morning hours. (I think we have finally caught up on sleep)

The school was transformed into a  luau by parent volunteer Christine Kirk. Treasury and fundraising efforts were led by Gina Kouma. To get the night started students were met at the door by Emily Clark and her team of volunteers.  Fun games with a beach theme were organized by Tracey Hufnagle, Brad and Tacy Kessler, Lisa Schmittle and Nikki Hunt. We had the full attention of the students during the raffle prize drawings organized by Lisa Hocker. Throughout the night, students had the opportunity to win prizes such as an iPad mini, Hershey Park tickets, a certificate to the Escape games and many more.  And of course, a delicious selection of food was organized by Lori Ward.        

Since Post Prom is made possible by the hard work and donations by families and businesses in the community, the Post Prom committee would like to acknowledge those who support this years’ event.
