On June 4, a group of young people will look forward to the start of their adult life.
Memorial High School Project Graduation provides a fun way for these future leaders to celebrate.
Project Graduation is an all-night, drug-free, alcohol-free, parent-sponsored party provided for the school's senior class the night of graduation.
The goal: to give seniors a great graduation party filled with fun, food, friends, prizes, and entertainment in a safe school environment.
The students are "locked in" once inside the building to ensure their safety, according to organizers.
Before the event, students and parents sign a contract agreeing to all rules for the evening.
Event activities include casino and carnival games, music, karaoke, inflatable games and an endless supply of food. Students earn tickets by playing the games and then exchange them for raffle tickets, which are used to win prizes.
All graduates will receive a goodie bag, T-shirt and other gifts.
The students pay a nominal fee for entry. Everything else is donated. Organizers as you to donate by contacting one of the event chairpeople or officers.
Food, paper goods, door prizes, gift bag items, cash and volunteers are just some of the items required to make this a success, organizers say. All contributors appear on the program for that night's festivities.
