Project Graduation Westborough looking for help

Westborough – Project Graduation Westborough is an independent nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide graduating high school seniors a safe, chemical-free celebration event the evening of their graduation.

Maura Shunney, Sharon Lees and Lynne Atkinson, parents of senior students, are co-chairs of this year's celebration. Organization and planning of this year's party have just begun and additional volunteers are asked to participate on fundraising, food, decoration and publicity committees. Contact Maura Shunney at mauramqs@aol.com for additional information.
The evening event, to be held June 9 at Teamworks, will create a “themed” environment with extensive decorations, entertainment, food, games and recreational sports.

Project Graduation relies on the participation and contributions of parent volunteers. Each year parents of junior students chaperone the evening activities, allowing seniors to party with their peers without the watchful eye of their “own” parents.

Parents and community businesses are encouraged to make a donation to cover the $15,000 cost. Each year families of senior students are asked for a donation of $35 to help defray the cost of the evening.

If interested in further information, call Donna Davis, publicity committee, at 508-898-1515 or Mary Anne Bryant, trustee of Project Graduation Westborough, at 508-366-8050.
