Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation (GPSG), an all-volunteer, non-profit 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 event can’t take place without volunteers to make it happen. 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 GMHS Safe Grad Committee holds meetings 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/

Several fundraisers are planned in the coming months to make this event possible. 

Interested in sending a frolicking flock of flamingoes to your friends?  The Safe Grad Committee will surprise your friends with a “flocking” for a $30 donation.  Email gradflock@yahoo.com for more details or to order a flocking.

Cash 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.

The committee also gladly accepts donated raffle prizes.  Anyone interested in donating prizes, or volunteering at the party, can email granbyparentssafegrad@gmail.com

Please consider being a part of this special event honoring our graduating seniors of the Class of 2023. Help us support this proud Granby tradition!
