Businesses continue to back Juniata HS prom

To the editor:

Another Juniata High School prom has come and gone. It’s so hard to believe how time has passed. Even harder to believe is how generous our local business owners are year in and year out to the youth of our community. At this time we’d like to thank the following businesses and private citizens for their contributions to our after-prom party. Well over 125 students attended the all-night function, and it was very successful. Words cannot express how thankful we are for the support we received from the community. It is our hope that the after prom can continue a successful run for years to come.
