The Ventnor Education Community Complex served as the venue for the first-ever prom.

If the smiles on everyone there was a measure of success then the first “Linked in Love” prom was a smash hit. Aaron Melora of Hammonton and Krista Lamana of Landisville were crowned the king and queen of the prom.

“I never saw so many smiles before,” event coordinator Cindy Fertsch said. “We had this idea to make a great experience for our kids, but we had no budget. But, the community rallied around us with many local businesses stepping forward to help sponsor with generous donations of food, beverage, prizes and more.”
