With the second semester now well underway at Fort Frances High School, the 2006 “chem-free” grad committee is inviting parents to its first meeting tomorrow (Feb. 21) to begin planning the annual event.
The “chem-free” grad party gives graduating students a safe and sober environment where they can celebrate their accomplishments.
The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the library at Fort High. All volunteers are welcome.
“We need people to organize the activities and get the sponsorships, the prizes, and the food,” said organizer Brian Gustafson.
“There is generally an excellent turnout,” he added, noting about 80 percent of the grads have participated in the party in the past.
Last year’s “chem-free” party was held at the ’52 Canadians Arena, where 150 grads spent the night playing games of chance and “name that tune,” playing on the inflatable games from Airbounce Amusements, and trying out the OPP’s drunk driving simulator.
There also were numerous prizes up for grabs, including a microwave oven, compact fridge, and electronic equipment.
For more information about tomorrow night’s meeting, contact Gustafson at the high school (274-7747).
