The Mount Pulaski High School Post Prom Committee would like to thank all of the businesses, civic organizations, and individuals who helped to make the Post Prom a huge success this year! This event was held from 11:30 PM on Saturday, May 4, until 6:00 AM on Sunday, May 5, at Mount Pulaski High School. Students had a great time during the event which included bingo, inflatable human foosball, inflatable obstacle course, 9 square, inflatable light challenge, inflatable hungry hippo, hypnotist show, vegas games, a magic show, and a lot of guest prizes!

The students also enjoyed pizza, wings, a coffee bar, drinks, snacks, an ice cream bar, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, and sausage.
