The 20th Annual Special Needs prom, hosted by Canfield High School, is for children in Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana Counties. On May 12, 2017, from 5:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. "Puttin' on the Ritz" is at St. Mary’s Assumption Social Center located at 356 S. Belle Vista Avenue in Youngstown. This annual tradition includes formal attire, dancing, limos and more.
The prom is for children in the tri-county area with multiple, orthopedic, and/or cognitive disabilities. Mrs. Muzina, Canfield teacher, says, “Most importantly, this night provides the students an opportunity to experience a high school prom just like their typical peers.”
