Launching Arrows, a non-profit organization in Oskaloosa, will host a second prom for individuals with special needs in the surrounding communities. Called “A Night of Stars”, the event goes from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on May 12 at the Vermeer Global Pavilion, located at 2110 Vermeer Rd E. in Pella.  Pella Middle School special education teacher Kelsie Sheets created Launching Arrows, an organization that keeps students who might have financial difficulties active within their community or school, a few years ago in Oskaloosa. Sheets got the idea for a prom from the Tim Tebow Foundation, which holds an annual prom for people with special needs.  Sheets was invited to volunteer at one of the Tim Tebow Foundation proms by her sister, where she says she fell in love with the program, and thought the event could be held locally.  The first local  “Night of Stars” special needs prom was held in May of 2017 and was a big success, thanks in part to great support from volunteers and the community.  This year’s prom has been moved up one hour; A light dinner will be provided for attendees, and anyone over the age of 12 can attend the prom, adults included.
