Teens can stop by the Women's Resource Center, 105 Normal Road in DeKalb, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday through April 30. For more information, call 815-753-0320.

Post-Prom needs donations

SYCAMORE – Donations are being sought to defray the cost of the 60th annual Sycamore High School Post-Prom.

Post-Prom is a safe, chaperoned way to extend the fun of students attending prom. It provides an alternative to private parties where alcohol or drugs may be present. Prom will be held at the Holmes Student Center in DeKalb on May 18; Post-Prom begins at 12:30 a.m. May 19, immediately after the prom, in the Huskie Den, also inside the Holmes Student Center.

Because the event is free to students and is not funded by the school, donations from the community are sought to defray costs. Checks can be made payable to Post-Prom and sent to the National Bank & Trust Co., Attn: SHS Post-Prom, c/o JoAnn Pumroy, 230 W. State St., Sycamore, IL 60178.
