Bruce recently accompanied Amanda Parks of Tangier Island to her junior prom. She was one of 8 members in her class at the little high school on Tangier Island located in the Chesapeake Bay of the coast of Virginia.  Local tradition is that the couple goes to the island high school and have photos taken then they march out of the school and are cheered by the members of the island community.  They then walk to the local restaurant and have dinner for several hours followed by a dance at the local recreation center.  They then go on a scavenger hunt sponsored by the community.  The local people contribute gifts and money, which are hidden around the island. Each of the prom goers is provide a paper with hints to where to find the gifts.  That even is followed by an early morning breakfast. 

Bruce is the son of Carol and Bruce Tinneny of Fort Washington, Pa and the great-great grandson of Yankee Pat Tinneny of Goladuff, Co. Fermanagh, Ireland, Greenock, Scotland and Philadelphia.
