Our Readers' Opinions

Project Prom a great success

In the early hours of the morning following their prom, about 100 seniors and their friends enjoyed a fun-filled extravaganza at the Clark Sports Center. A Cooperstown tradition since 1984, Project Prom provides a safe, alcohol and drug-free celebration for our students.
