MHS seniors enjoy all-nighter
By Joan F. Simoneau, Community Reporter
Westborough – The Wayside Racquet and Swim Club provided the setting once again for the annual after-the-prom “All-Nighter” held June 1 first for Marlborough High School (MHS) graduating seniors and their guests. For the past 27 years the event has been held thanks to the support of students, teachers, parents and the community allowing students to have fun in a safe, secure environment.
“Another All-Nighter has come and gone and it was a great one,” said parent Eileen Bailey who headed up the committee with another parent, Denise Farrell, and Sharon Buckley, MHS All-Nighter liaison.
“Nearly 300 students were able to celebrate safely and parents were able to rest without worry,” she said, extending thanks to all who helped support the event.
Although the school district supports the event philosophically and physically, it does not provide financial assistance, according to Bailey.
Among the many fund raising events held throughout the year was a Zumba-thon in March where participants of all ages enjoyed exercising to Latin American music. In April a Spring Fling was held in the Masonic Hall that featured games, food, and dancing. “Honor a Teen with $20.13” was another special effort that also provided financial help. Residents were asked to honor their own student or a neighbor, babysitter, Scout, athlete, etc. by donating $20.13 in the name of the student.
