Last weekend was prom at Hartford Union HS and Buddy Luke was crowned Prom KING! Luke is also the Buddy Director for the school's Best Buddies Chapter. Way to go, Luke.

Here is a very happy and thrilled Luke pictured with one of the Hartford Union HS Peer Buddies, Erica, who was congratulating him. Erica's Buddy couldn't make it to prom this year, but she was so glad to be there to support Luke as a fellow Best Buddies Chapter Member.

General information

What is the Best Buddies commitment? After matches are made at the beginning of the year, each chapter member commits to the following: • Weekly contact with his/her buddy~ Such as a phone call, e-mail, written note, or lunch together in the cafeteria. • One-to-One activities twice per month~ Together, the buddy pair will decide what it is they would like to do. Some ideas include attending a school sporting event, going to the movies, joining another club at school, or just hanging out. • Attend all Chapter group activities~ With support from the advisors, peer buddies, and buddies, the entire chapter will help organize these events. Past events have included theme parties, fundraisers, scavenger hunts, and service projects.
