Dear Editor:

On behalf of CREW (Community Recreation Education Workshop), I would like to thank the Decorah community for supporting Decorah High School's post-prom party.

Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and individuals, students were treated to a night of fun following the grand march and dance. Party festivities (at no cost to the kids) included raffles, minute-to-win-it games, casino games, great food and snacks, a money machine, billiards and party headliner, hypnotist Jeff Michaels.

We would also like to thank Luther College and Marty's staff for hosting the event and service organization APO for volunteering as game hosts.

CREW has been providing activities in a safe environment for local youth for over 30 years. It is made up of volunteers and is coordinated through the Decorah Parks and Recreation Department. If you would like to volunteer or make a donation to CREW, please contact the Park-Rec office, 382-4158.
