Safe Grad Committee seeks volunteers, donations

Print More

After a two-year hiatus, Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation (GPSG) is bringing back the traditional all-night, substance-free party to celebrate Granby’s graduating seniors.

GPSG, an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that organizes a substance-free Grad Night celebration for Granby Memorial High School (GMHS) graduates, is seeking volunteers to help with the event. The committee is working on party plans for the 2022 graduates and needs assistance to ensure our seniors are properly recognized.

The event can’t take place without volunteers. The event 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 each year 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 holds meetings the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., through May (except during school vacations). Meetings are held in the media center at GMHS. To keep up to date on committee happenings, including upcoming fundraising events, follow the Facebook page found at

Donations of any amount are also welcome. GPSG has long relied on generous donations from the community, as well as the support of the Granby Community Fund. 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.
