GMHS Grad Night Party needs support

Print More

As seniors at Granby Memorial High School count down to graduation day, Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation (an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that organizes a substance-free Grad Night celebration for GMHS graduates), is busy planning the big event.

The party, which takes place the evening of June 9, can’t happen 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 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. Volunteers can email for more information.

The GPSG Committee is fundraising to ensure a great party for all attendees. Details for upcoming events will be shared via social media. 

Interested in sending a frolicking flock of flamingos to your friends? Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation will surprise your friends with a “flocking” for a $30 donation. Email for more details or to order a flocking.

Cash donations are also welcome. To make a donation, please make checks payable to Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation and send to Granby Parents for a Safe Graduation, Attn: Asst. Treasurer, P.O. Box 81, Granby, CT 06035.

The committee also gladly accepts donated raffle prizes or gift cards. Anyone interested in donating prizes can email
