Thank you for making Hardy County
 such a mobile and well-cared for place!



It’s that time of year when the Moorefield High School Business Partnership goes out into the community asking local businesses for donations to be used for the After Prom Activity.  This Activity is hosted each year by the Partnership as an alternative for students who otherwise may be out drinking & driving.  Your donations will be used as door prizes or the purchase of door prizes to be given out for those students attending the After Prom Activity.


This year the After Prom will be held at the South Branch Potomac Lanes in Moorefield.

If you are able to make a donation please call

Larry Curtis at 304-538-7900,

or Kathy Riggleman at 304-538-5223

to arrange a pick up time.


As always we appreciate your continued help & support in making this activity a fun and safe alternative for our teenagers to remember their special night.
