SPARTA, NJ - The Lake Mohawk Country Club boardwalk was packed on Friday afternoon.  Students in gowns and tuxes, with wristlets and tough-to-pin-on boutonnieres in  posed in pairs and groups for pre-prom photos in front of the picture postcard back ground.  The same scene was repeated in backyards all over town, parents with cameras taking "way too many pictures," one young lady said.

Send your photos to jdericks@tapinto.net to be added to the story.
