Crescenta Valley High School’s Prom Plus Committee is hosting its annual Taste of Montrose event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today in the 2200 block of Honolulu Avenue. More than two dozen restaurants and culinary experts will provide a sampling of their fare. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on Honolulu Avenue. The Taste of Montrose is a major fundraiser for Prom Plus, an after-prom event for Crescenta Valley High School seniors and their guests. Prom Plus was started after a CV senior was murdered at an unsupervised post-prom party in 1991.

All dressed up with nowhere to go. That's how many high school seniors feel when the last song of the night plays at the senior prom. Still looking good and with an abundance of energy, these soon-to-be graduates are not ready to call it a night. And Crescenta Valley High School prom-goers and their guests don't have to. For the past 12 years, Prom Plus has been part of the prom plans of CV seniors and their guests. Held at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Prom Plus is an alternative to unchaperoned parties, offering a supervised post-prom event from midnight to 5:30 a.m. Included with the purchase of a prom ticket, Prom Plus provides a variety of things for guests to do, including laser tag, a full casino with blackjack, poker, craps and roulette, and pool tables.

Saturday afternoon was a flurry of activity as young men and women across the Foothills prepared for the social finale to the school year ? the Crescenta Valley High School senior prom. The prom was held last weekend at the Wallis Annenberg Hall near the California Science Center in Los Angeles. More than 700 prom tickets were sold to the formal event that started in mid-afternoon at the high school gym. But, prior to the formal festivities, Montrose?s Merle Norman was the place to be for finishing touches on the many princesses for a day. Kelly Shaftel, 17, a senior at CV High, was surrounded by family and friends as Merle Norman co-owner Kris Kline applied foundation and eyeliner to the young woman.

Gary Moskowitz SANTA MONICA -- Eighteen-year-old James Williams summed up Hoover High School's 2002 senior prom quite nicely. "They like to get their boogie on, plain and simple," James said. Most of the 492 seniors and guests who attended the big event Saturday at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles spent the night on the dance floor. Two deejays played hip hop, Top 40, reggae, salsa, Armenian music and country, featuring artists like Snoop Doggy Dog, The Beastie Boys, Rob Base, Jennifer Lopez and Usher.

Alecia Foster SOUTHWEST GLENDALE -- It had all the makings of a prom -- from the fancy dinner and formal attire to dance music and corsages. But there was something different about Daily High School's formal Friday night. This time it was o7 theirf7 prom. "We thought it would be fun to do something of our own," said student Paola Pistoia. For at least 15 years -- that anyone at the school can remember -- the students at Daily have had to attend a prom at the school they previously attended if they wanted to go. The experience, however, just wasn't the same, said Student Council Vice President Stefanie Mendoza.

Josh Kleinbaum Most students at Crescenta Valley High School have a vague memory of why Prom Plus exists. "I don't think people care," said Allison Sluk, a senior who will attend Saturday's prom and Prom Plus. "They're like, 'Oh, it's really sad.' But I don't think they realize why parents are so concerned." On June 1, 1991, at an early-morning party in an Anaheim hotel after the prom, Berlyn Cosman was shot in the head by Paul Michael Crowder.

Gary Moskowitz GLENDALE -- By the time she got to her senior prom at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Pasadena, half the fun was over for Erin Powell. Powell, 18, was among the roughly 550 seniors who attended Glendale High School's prom May 24. Even though she said she had a great time with her friends, Powell said most of the fun of prom is in the anticipation. Hoover High School's prom Saturday will close the 2002 prom season in Glendale. "The whole fun of it starts at least two months earlier, when you start looking for dresses and making your plans," Powell said.
