Milford prom night activities are directed at keeping students safe

As prom season gets into full swing, communities around the nation are trying to send a message to teenagers.

Groups such as the highway patrol, police, MADD and others are encouraging prom goers to drive safely, avoid alcohol and practice responsibility in their celebrations. Locally, Milford students will be enjoying what seems to be one of the most exciting safety programs around, the annual after prom.

“Basically, this is an event we have at the high school every year for the kids as a way to give them something to do after the prom instead of being on the streets, driving around, drinking, or renting hotel rooms,” said after prom chairperson Judi Testerman.
