Opinions expressed are not necessarily the opinions of the N/Warren Town and County News staff. Letters are printed as received. We do not correct spelling and grammatical errors. As the high school prom season rapidly approaches, our After Prom committee is completing the arrangements for this year's after prom party. Each year our newspa- pers report of teenagers who attend unsupervised motel parties who have been seri- ously injured or killed in tragic accidents. It is our hope to provide a supervised chemical/drug free party which will complete a gala evening with a positive memory. An additional goal is to significantly decrease the potential risks which are com- monly associated with the unsupervised motel parties. This year's After Prom event will be held at Tokens in West Des Moines. This will include great video games, laser tag, dance revolution, mini golf, hypnotist, prizes and food. Students do not need to attend Prom to come to After Prom. The cost for After Prom is $30 per person. PREREGISTRATION AND PAYMENT ARE RE- QUIRED. If parents have already sent in their $30, the student is registered. Their dates must also be pre-registered and pre-pay the $30. Please register and make pay- ment ASAP for you AND your date. Payment may be made either at the school office or mail to: Norwalk After Prom, Box 177, Norwalk, Iowa 50211. It is also important to note that students must arrive at Tokens between 12 a.m. and I a.m. in order to be admitted. We are requesting that students stay the entire time. However, if students want to leave before 5:00 a.m., a parent will be noti- fied. The After Prom event at Tokens will conclude at approximately 5 a.m. on May 2nd and will be followed by a free pancake breakfast at the Norwalk Fire Station, spon- sored by the firemen.

If anyone is interested in chaperoning or donating a prize, let one of us know. Thanks! /s/Kathy Fazio April and Blue Ribbons Along with tying ribbons around trees, this April you will see Child Abuse Pre- vention Council members in their blue tee-shirts bagging groceries or selling burgers as a fund raiser at the local Hy-Vee store, hanging banners, handing out pinwheels or talking with kids and their parents at the Toddler Fun Fest. We are out there be- cause we are passionate about what we do. What is that, you ask? We provide daycare to parents who need a break for a couple of hours regardless of income. We offer young parents a place where they can come and obtain skills on becoming good parents in an environment that isn't judging or condescending. We provide classes to parents and daycare providers on Shaken Baby Syndrome and Sexual Abuse Pre- vention. We do this because we know that there is a need in Warren County. Unfortunately, like many other non-profit organizations, the funding needed to provide programs such as thrones listed above has decreased dramatically over the last couple of years. Without this funding, many of our programs are being jeopar- dized. I wish to thank all of you that have supported our local chapter in the past. We appreciate your donations and hope that you will continue to support us our efforts to educate and aid those in our county that need us. If you would like more informa- tion or would like to donate, please write to CAPC, PO Box 417, Indianola, IA 50125. As our saying goes, protecting children is everyone's business I hope that you can help us do just that. /s/Sue Christensen 225 North Buxton Indianola, IA 50125 SUBSCRIBE TODAY!
