Update: Prom season makes welcome return

From left to right, Zoe Swartz, Lexi Keller, Emily Horvath, Madi Mahoney and Ansley Wilson attended the Science Hill prom.

After a lost year of sorts, young people in our region are once again enjoying a rite of passage that has traditionally ushered in springtime.

Tuxedoes and colorful dresses are appearing around town as our local high schools hold proms this May after most of these events were cancelled due to the pandemic last year. If you have prom photos you’d like to see on the pages of the News & Neighbor in coming weeks, email them to: news@jcnewsandneighbor.com and remember to include the names of the young people pictured in each photo.

We hope you all enjoy these images of normalcy returning to our corner of the world.
