A total of 297 secondary school graduates are ready to mark a milestone this weekend in Williams Lake.
While each school has or will hold its graduation ceremonies separately, all graduating students from the Cariboo Adventist Academy, GROW Centre and Skyline School, Maranatha Christian School, and Lake City Secondary will join together for the parade and dry grad celebration being held Saturday, June 6.
Everyone is invited to view the grad parade which begins at 6 p.m.
You can expect the unexpected as the grads display their “mode of transportation.”
From fancy cars, tractors, even muddy ATVs, the fun-filled cavalcade begins at the corner of Comer Street and Second Avenue, continuing down Second Avenue, left on Borland Street, then left on Third Avenue, along to Proctor Street where they make a right which will take them to their destination at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, where they will “arrive in style” for their Dry Grad celebration.
All participants muster by entering Second Avenue via Rose Street off of Mackenzie Avenue North at 5 p.m.
Water and snacks will be provided at the start of the parade.
Also, don’t forget the Dry Grad Truck Raffle. First prize is a 1994 Chevrolet Z-71 extended cab 4×4 automatic, donated by Cariboo GM with services provided by local businesses. Second prize is a beautifully hand-crafted log bench donated by Pioneer Log Homes Ltd. Third prize is a fireRight2 stainless steel portable gas grill donated by Air and Water Home Environment Inc.
