It’s the volunteers who make it great

A big thank you goes out to all the parents who made the After Prom Party a big success.

This is a great event, sponsored by the Ross Aragon Community Center, but it is led by some awesome parents who give it their all each year. Some of these parents are empty nesters, but still believe in the program and the children.

So thank you for your time, energy, patience, donations and stamina. Truly, this program is only great because of you!
