FRHS Prom To Be Held 34 Years Late By Mara Lander

The graduates of Far Rockaway High School class of 1970 happily announce their long awaited senior prom. Thirty-Four years ago the class of 1970 decided against having a senior prom, as it seemed inappropriate in the Vietnam era. But a group of the alumni has decided it is never too late.

Many of the graduates of the class of 1970 have been in touch over the internet, at FRHS70@yahoo.com, and have begun making arrangements to hold a prom for their graduating class, 34 years later. The prom is slated to be held at Law­rence Country Club on May 1, 2004. Prom goers can expect everything that they may have missed 34 years ago, including dancing, dining, and of course, the crowning of a prom king and queen.

There will be a 300-person limit. Tickets will cost $150 per person. Deposits of $50 are being accepted. The prom will be open to graduates of Far Rockaway High School classes from 1965-1972. Arrangements will be made for out of town guests, and coordinators are hoping for a large response. Alumni interested in attending the prom should contact Shari Horne at Obythesea@aol.com.
