Mayor Janice S. Mironov, joined by Council Member Peter Yeager, Coordinator of the East Windsor Municipal Alliance for the Prevention of Substance Abuse (EWMAPSA), and Council Member John Zoller, EWMAPSA Member, proclaimed the month of April Alcohol Awareness Month and presented a Mayoral Proclamation and a $1,000 grant check from the East Windsor Municipal Alliance for the Prevention of Substance Abuse grant to the East Windsor Regional School District Hightstown High School After Prom Committee, represented by After Prom Committee President Ulrica Infosino and After Prom Committee Secretary Caroline Garcia.  

Mayor Mironov stated, “Each year for Alcohol Awareness Month, we focus on the good work of our high school After Prom Committee which sponsors the After Prom event, providing students, on their special night, a fun and safe prom evening.  Underage drinking is a serious and prevalent problem in all of our communities, and it is important that we come together as a community to underscore the dangers of underage drinking and to enhance the safety of our citizens.  The caring parents and community members of the After Prom Committee work hard to make this event a success and provide a safe and substance free environment for the young people in our community on their special prom night.”  The Mayoral Proclamation commends the East Windsor Regional School District Hightstown High School After Prom Committee noting, “the After Prom Committee has been providing an after prom event for the past thirty-two years, and during those thirty-two years there have been no alcohol or drug related incidents on prom night.”

Council Member Yeager, Coordinator of EWMAPSA, thanked the After Prom Committee for all of their work, stating, “I know how much work goes into this event, not just the day of the event but the all of the preparation that really begins the year before and all of the volunteers that help set everything up for a safe and fun event.  It is nice to have these events to show that you do not need drugs or alcohol to have a good time, and that is really what this event is all about.”  Council Member Zoller, Member of the EWMAPSA, also added, “Thank you for all of the years you have had this event and all of the young people you have protected with your efforts.”
