Volunteers needed to celebrate GMHS senior class

Print More

Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation (GPSG), an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that organizes a substance-free Grad Night celebration for Granby Memorial High School graduates, is seeking volunteers to help with the event.

For the past two years, due to COVID-19, GPSG has been unable to throw a party for graduates. It is hoped that the 2022 graduating class will be able to experience this event, and GPSG needs assistance to ensure our seniors are properly recognized.

The event can’t take place without volunteers to make it happen. It is typically chaperoned by underclassmen parents, not the senior parents, so it is especially important for new volunteers to step up each year. Help is needed with food, room set up, decorations, chaperoning and other tasks. Volunteers are needed both in planning and preparation for the event, and at the party itself.

The committee meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. through May other than during school vacations. Meetings are held in the media center at GMHS. To keep up to date on committee happenings, follow the Facebook page found at: facebook.com/granbyctsafegrad/

Donations are also welcome. To make a donation, please send checks payable to “Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation” to Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation, Attn: Treasurer, PO Box 81, Granby, CT 06035. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact GPSG Chair Coreen Thompson at coreenlt@gmail.com

Please consider being a part of this special event honoring GMHS graduating seniors. Help us support this proud Granby tradition!
