SANATOGA PA – If it seems as though there’s an unusual increase in the number of limousines entering and leaving the grounds of Sunnybrook Ballroom during recent weekends, it’s because the venerable dance hall has become a popular venue for an ages-old tradition: the high school prom.
The ballroom, 50 Sunnybrook Road, plays host Friday night (May 1, 2009) to the prom of Lower Pottsgrove’s St. Pius X High School. Lucky Pius juniors and seniors who plan to attend will be able to leave school Friday after their fourth-period classes to prepare for the night’s big doin’s.
On Saturday, (May 2, 2009) just 24 hours later, Sunnybrook welcomes the Oley Valley Senior High School prom. Then on May 16 (2009; Saturday), it will be home to the similar event scheduled by Emmaus High School; and on May 29 (2009; Friday), for the prom-goers from Boyertown Area Senior High School.
Owen J. Roberts High School held its prom at Sunnybrook earlier, on April 24 (2009).
