Dry Grad 2012 needs more helpers

Stars and Constellations! has been voted in as the theme for Dry Grad 2012.

Stars and Constellations! has been voted in as the theme for Dry Grad 2012.

When school went back in September, it marked the time for another year of planning and preparation for next year’s Dry Grad event that will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2012.

This is a huge undertaking spearheaded by a very dedicated dry grad committee. Every year the entire community of Williams Lake embraces this important occasion and completely supports it.

People may not realize that there are many communities (many larger than Williams Lake) out there that do not host Dry Grad events due to lack of community support. The graduating students of Williams Lake are very fortunate to have a community that gives so much financially, and puts forth thousands of volunteer hours, to host this party.

Fundraising efforts are well underway, with the recent selling of Purdy’s chocolates and DeVry Poinsettias in the high schools.

Fundraisers include the sale of Save On More gift cards, and the sale of PartyLite candles.

As well, the fundraising committee has also been very busy attending many of the local craft sales, where they have been selling delicious Purdy’s chocolates, and Mother Parker’s brand gourmet coffee and hot chocolate.

Although the fundraising committee has a small, but dedicated group of parents and grads, they are in need of more volunteers to help with these fundraising efforts.

If you are interested in volunteering some time, call Cary at 250-398-8802 or

Dry Grad decorating events will be held every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the former location of Gladie’s Fashions, beside the Bank of Montreal, in the Hodgson Place mall location.

Everyone is welcome to attend!

For more information, please contact Sylvie (250) 392-2619.

Hope to see you there.
