LCSS ceremonies take place Friday evening

Grad parents and other volunteers have been busy decorating for Dry Grad 2019. With a theme of Viva Las Vegas, the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex’s rink two is being transformed into a club dance floor surrounded by famous hotels.

Grad parent Kendra Rogers-Calabrese said they used many repurposed items from past graduations to make the decorations and people like Murray Hoffman, a retired teacher, built new structures with donated wood from Tolko and West Fraser.
