Nothing good comes of shopping for prom dresses.
It’s almost May, and if you happen to have a teen-aged girl, there’s a good chance she’s going to prom. Or thinking about prom. Or hoping to be asked to prom. Or planning for prom. For some reason, most teen girls are consumed by it in some form or another. Parents, on the other hand, would rather see the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The most important part of prom, for many, is the dress. It’s second only to a girl’s wedding dress. The search for it will more than likely take just as much time. Now, take the stress of prom, and add not one, but two girls, and you can see that I had a recipe for disaster brewing. Most girls head straight for the mall, which by and large caters to the teen set. I, however, hate the mall. …

A “particularly sweet” prom proposal took place at William Tennent on Friday.
When William Tennent student Matt Kelly asked classmate Liz Orfe to senior prom Friday, it was simple, but public, and “particularly sweet,” the school’s assistant principal Dr. Michael Devitt said. In the school’s cafeteria, as students took their seats and gathered their meals for first period lunch at 10:40 a.m., country music superstar Reba McEntire’s 2009 hit “I Keep on Loving You” began to trickle out of the loudspeaker and fill the room. Students looked around, confused, but some had an idea of what would come next. Out of a side room, Matt stepped into the cafeteria with a smile, bouquet of fresh red roses and a handmade poster board sign that read: “Prom?” Many students stood and watched, some even whipped out their cell phones …

The event is open to both gay and heterosexual couples throughout the community.
The prom is a quintessential moment in the life of most teenagers. You get dressed up, buy a corsage and maybe even pick up your date in a limo. But some same-sex teen couples don’t have a chance to experience the prom in high school. So members of Bucks County Community College’s Open Door Club are giving them an opportunity to celebrate prom in a way they are comfortable. The Open Door Club is hosting its annual LGBT Prom on Friday, April 13 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the college’s Gallagher Room. The LGBT (stands for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) Prom is open to the public. All BCCC students are invited to attend, as well as high school students and members of the public. Both gay and heterosexual couples are welcomed to attend. Open …

It was a night of memories for the graduating class, as they prepare for their future adventures.
The seniors at William Tennent High School were more than ready to dance and celebrate Friday night at the school’s 2011 senior prom in Ivyland. The prom was held at the Spring Mill Country Club from 7 p.m. to midnight and included the usual prom staples such as a techno-club-lit dance floor, full buffet, and professional pictures. More than dancing and celebrating, however, most seniors were excited to eat. A long day of fasting to ensure that the picture-perfect dress slips on without any snags really builds an appetite. Senior Karin Lydon was anxious to get the night underway as she stood in the long line waiting to be ushered into the banquet hall. “What am I most excited for? The food!” Lydon said, “I’m hungry.” But it’s not all about…
