Partying Parents Needed!

The Senior Graduation Party is scheduled for Saturday, June 2, and the organizers are extremely short of volunteers this year. Planning for the party started in January with a kick-off meeting for parents to sign up to help. However, the meeting this year coincided with a major snowstorm that hit Missoula and kept many parents at home.

This is the 28th annual celebration for high school graduates in Missoula County. The event was created by local community leaders and law enforcement officers as an answer to preventing tragic alcohol-related accidents and deaths on graduation night. It was becoming the unfortunate norm to lose a graduate every year. There have been no deaths on graduation night since the graduation celebration has been in existence …. that’s 27 years of keeping our graduating seniors safe! With the recent alcohol-related fatal accidents, it stresses the importance of keeping this event going to give our graduates a safe and fun way to celebrate.

Parents of high school students are highly encouraged to volunteer in whatever way they can. There are many opportunities to be involved with an array of different committees such as Prizes, Entertainment, Games, Decorations, Publicity, Tickets, Concessions, First Aid, Chaperones, and many more. Some committees are in full force right now and some don’t get going until closer to the event. However, it is necessary for people to sign up now to assure there are enough volunteers to make the event a success.

For security reasons, we are requesting that volunteers be parents of a Missoula area high school student (not just parents of seniors). To volunteer, please call Linda Heihn at 529-8889.

Please help keep this tradition going!
